A Hawaiian Slumber Party (or Luau theme) is one of the most popular sleepover ideas out there.

It is always fun to “go tropical”, especially when the weather is cold outside.

Here are some easy party ideas and games to help you plan yours!

  • Decorate flip flops

  • Make large tissue paper flowers

  • Have a load of sand delivered and have a sand castle building contest. (keep it outdoors if you can…sand gets everywhere!)

  • Hula Hoop Contest

  • Limbo!

  • Pass the Orange Game : (two teams form a line…each team has an orange and passes it from person to person under their chin – no hands allowed! The first team that passes the orange all the way down the line wins!)

  • Coconut Hunt (Treasure Hunt to find the hidden coconuts)

  • Bust the Coconut Game - Tie a brown balloon to an ankle of each guest. Have them try to pop each other’s “coconuts” without their own getting popped

  • Once Upon a Time… - Sit in a circle and let the host tell a story. They’ll start with a sentence to get the story rolling. Then the next person in the circle will tell what happened next in one sentence. Go around the circle 3 times to complete the story! (with a small group you may want to go around the circle more times than that)! Start the story in Hawaii…
