Make a Splash and Throw the Ultimate 'Finding Dory' Party
The fun shouldn’t have to end when the credits roll! We’ve got tropical-inspired party ideas for both kids and adults.
After patiently waiting a little over 13 years, "Finding Dory," the anticipated sequel to "Finding Nemo," finally hit theaters and the kid in me could not be more excited. For the millennials and adults who have been waiting too, I’ve got some tropical-inspired party ideas to help celebrate the film’s big release. Check out these party ideas below, and remember — just keep swimming!
First Up: Activities
Kid Version: Get the kiddos to the early movie matinee and you’ll have some sun leftover to have a lawn water slide party. All you need is a tarp and a hose with water and you’re good to go!
Adult Version: Throw a backyard luau complete with flower leis and citronella torches.
Kid Version: In honor of the film's favorite turtles, make a green ice-cream float. Summer is toasty, and this is a great way to cool the kids down.
Make It: Green River Ice Cream Float
Adult Version: Nothing celebrates aquatic life like a boozy fishbowl punch complete with fish gummies.
Make It: Fishbowl Punch
