Games and Movies for a Luau Party?

My name is Gabby and I am having a Hawaiian luau party for me and 13 of my friends. This is a boy girl party and most of us are 13 or 14. I pretty much have everything under control like decorations and some foods but what I need help on is what games to play.


I don't want them to be too cheeesy but fun.i also need ideas for hawaiian or hawaiian related movies because my dad is renting a projector and we are watching a movie on the side of my house.If you have any ideas for movies or fun games please tell me.Thanks a bunch,gabby<3

Just play truth or dare, one thing will lead to another and it may turn out to be an awesome party.

Limbo seems like it would be appropriate

I did a Luau for my daughter's birthday and we did Coconut bowling. Use plastic bowling pins or empty 2 liters and take turns bowling them over with coconuts. you might want to have several coconuts because the boys will try to break them.


Another suggestion might be to drain the milk from them first. Beach ball volleyball is another goodie.

We had a Luau for my teen son's 18th birthday.

I took a white poster board and painted a brown Tiki god mask, to play something like "pin the tail on the donkey." We had noses to pin, however. (see pic 1769)

The most awesome game, however, was tacky tourist. It was a relay race with 2 teams. There were identical items that I picked up at a second hand store: camera, straw hat, loud tourist shirt, sun visor, sunglasses, swimming flippers and a grass skirt. The guests raced to dress in the gear, run to a point, then return to undress from gear. (see pic 1778) The family is still talking about that racing game. My photos are here:

I am having a hawiian themed surprise birthday party for my friend kelley, she is turning 13. It is a girl's only party, so that makes things a little easier. There will be 13 people coming.

I have a pool, so we are going swimming. here are some others things we are doing that might help you if you dont have a pool:

Hawiian Music
Perhaps a hawiian movie
water balloon fight (never gets old :P )
flip flop decorating

We will also be doing pictures. give out sunglasses, and take an ironing board (surfboard) and have your guests strikea cool pose, while you take cool pictures of them with a polaroid camera. Makes a good party favor


Goodie bags:
Candy from pinata
a couple flower lays
a pair of flip flops (you can buy them chaep at Old Navy)
sunglasses from pictures

hope it helped!!

The game you can always play is called " Water balloon Volleyball" If you don't know how to play it, just go to the Internet, and type " Water Balloon Volleyball". This game is so fun.

For my 13th birthday a while back i had a Hawaiian Luau. Some of the games we played were cocnut stomp where you blow up brown balloons and each guest ties one around their ankle, then you try to pop other people's ballons by stepping on them but make sure that nobody pops yours at the same time, and musical beach towels(like musical chairs but with beach towels) a game where there are two people on each team and the first person sits in a chair blindfolded and the other berson sits on the floor in front of them facing away from the chair and the blindfolded partner tries to feed his/her partner whipcream from a can.


we had a water balloon fight and set the sprinkler so that it sprayed over the trampoline and we jumped on it. u should have music playing(either hawwaian or just some popular tunes) you can hire a hula instructor or rent a dvd or video on how to hula from the library. also for movies we watched 50 first dates, but since there aren't really any other good movies that have to do with hawaii we just watched chick flicks and comedies. for decorations u can go to party america or

Watch lilo and stitch. Play pin the lei on the girl. Play limbo (use the hose if you're out side and make it water limbo.)
Play coconut bowling. Oh get a hula dance movie and hula. Make hawaiian collages. Get Aquamarine the movie. Play hot coconut (just like hot potato) play hop the islands (you cut out the islands out of cardboard and everything around you is ocean and space the islands about 8 ft apart and use stuff like a jump rope, roller skates etc.


To make it to the last island. To win make 2 sets so you can split up) play scavenger hunt. Any game can be converted into a hawaiian luau game. Just be creative.
be creative

I'm planning a big luau for our family Labor Day picnic. A fun game is called water race. We have 2 teams, 12 on each team. Space them out into a long line and leave space between each player. Have bucket of water at start line and give each player a plastic cup and small blown up beach ball. First player dips cup into bucket of water, runs to next team mate with ball between legs, pours water into their cup and so on till they get to last teammate and they pour what's left into container. Do this for 2 minutes and see which team has the most water in their container. Get cameras ready

Try doing a game where the kids will hold hands on two teams and while still holding hands the kids step thru a hula hoop and thean slide it over to the next person

I'm having a luau too. You could watch Lilo and Stich 1 or 2. You could also watch Blue Hawaii, if you like Elvis Presley. You could also play musical beach towels, coconut bowling, or have a pinata. or you could watch Aquamarine like me.
