Finger Painted Giant Tiki Men


Summer is the perfect time for outdoor parties and entertaining. Luaus are a popular theme because they are fun, festive, and make you feel like you’re on a mini-vacation. Luaus create an oasis in your own backyard complete with family and friends. This is also an easy theme to DIY. You can line your tables with fringed green plastic tablecloths to represent grass skirts. You can make your own easy invitations and you can paint your own decorations. These finger painted giant tiki men are a fun and messy luau craft that lets kids get their hands dirty. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about the mess when you unleash your Clean Squad!

Before you get started painting you need to take the family for a trip to your local Wal-Mart and pick up Clorox Spray and Viva Vantage paper towels. We love how wide the aisles at Wal-Mart are! They are perfect when you have the whole family with you. They also make it easy for kids to get in on the shopping action. Little man could even shop from Papa’s shoulders which made him infinitely happy.

Once you get home, you want to clear a large space for your painting project. We moved the table and chairs from the dining room for our project. That gave us plenty of space to work with.

Unfortunately, when we moved the furniture I found some stains from goodness knows how long ago on the floor. (Note to self, kids are messy!) Thankfully, I already had my Clorox Cleaning Spray and Viva Vantage paper towels. I didn’t even have to let the Clorox soak on the stains. The stains wiped right up. Score! Once I finished, we had a clean, disinfected surface (thanks to Clorox Cleaner’s 99.9% germ killing strength) and were ready to get started.

Once you have finished your finger painted tiki men it is time for clean-up. With Clorox cleaner this took us no time at all. Seriously, you guys, we spent less than 5 minutes getting everything cleaned up, including squirmy kids. The craft took longer than the clean-up and that’s how it should be. The fun should always last the longest. The Viva Vantage paper towels last, too. We used one on the floor and it was strong enough to finish the entire job!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
