Moana Movie Weekend: Make Kakamoras

Moana just came out of DVD. It’s a beautiful story of a Hawaiian girl, Moana and her journey to find out who she is and what her destiny holds.

Kakamoras in the movie are pirates. They attack Moana on her voyage. 

  1. I bought 2 coconuts at Whole Foods. They were $1.99 each.
  2. I emptied out the coconut water by using a screwdriver and a hammer and hitting it on the black dimples part. Do this carefully, you don’t want to crack open the coconuts, at least not yet. You can leave the coconut water in the coconuts if you want, it just makes it heavier to stand on the legs. 
  3. I drained the coconuts into Teva cups and put it in the fridge to enjoy later as a cool organic drink. I got about one large glass of coconut water out of each coconut. 
  4. You will need a copy of the Make a Kakamora template. I printed it on card-stock to make it more durable, but you can also print it on paper and then glue to construction paper or thin cardboard. There seems to be only one pair of legs in the template, so I made an extra copy of that page for the second Kakamora.
  5. Cut out the pattern following the cutting lines.
  6. I used a hot glue gun to glue the body parts to the coconut. Be careful whenever using a glue gun. You probably want the kids to help cut, but have the adults do the gluing.
