Hawaiian luau party--Making a lei

The kids and I all have the day off for President's Day, so since we just bought the kids some new bathing suits from the Old Navy sale, they have been dying to wear them. We are all ready for some warmer weather, so today we cranked up the heat and decided to have a Hawaiian Luau party. Every day this week I will be sharing some of the things we did to celebrate. The first thing we did was work on looking like we were a part of a Luau. We made our own lei. I found a template of some flowers online and cut them out. I used a small screw driver to punch holes in the center of the flowers making it easier to string. Then we got some colorful straws and cut them in 1-1 1/2 inch pieces. Next we put them on the string. We alternated flowers and straws and they turned out really cute.
