Need ideas for a party on the last day of school?
Our first grade team throws a Luau! We have 7 first grade teachers, and each teacher runs a different station. Students are at a station for 15-20 minutes, then a whistle is blown and they move to the next station in the circle.
-Hula Hoop Contest
-Pass The Pineapple (Similar to Hot Potato- the pineapple is plastic with rounded edges and it explodes with water after a few minutes)
-Hawaiian Sack Races (See Oriental Trading for Hawaiian sacks)
There are two more I will have to remember and add later!
The parents bring in treats like fruit kabobs. Here are some other Hawaiian themed treats from Ezinearticles.com:
Hawaiian Pizza on a Stick...think Hawaiian pizza, ham, cheese and pineapple and put them cubed on cocktail sticks.
Hawaiian Pizza Muffins... good old English muffins topped with your favourite tropical ingredients.
Huli Huli Chicken Drumsticks...a lovely traditional Hawaiian tropical pineapple marinade to sweeten up those boring old drumsticks
Fancy Fruit Kebabs...don't just thread chunks of fruit on a stick, how about cutting them into fun shapes with a cookie cutter first.
Pineapple & Coconut Fritters...basic pineapple fritters are yum just as they are, but why not add a few extra ingredients and make them yummier still.
Mango Chicken Sandwiches...you can't have a party without at least one kind of sandwich on the table and for a Hawaiian Luau what could be better than one with chopped mango and chicken inside.
Pani Popo...these sweet coconut buns are a traditional Samoan fare and are deliciously doughy, baked in a sticky coconut sauce and really easy to make.
Most students check out early if their parents are there, but you could play Disney's Lilo and Stitch for the ones that stick around.
