For this Finding Dory Drink, You’ll Need:

A Finding Dory Party Drink for Kids - This is the perfect drink of an ocean themed or Finding Dory birthday party! -

  • A large container for your drink – I used a glass container
  • A blue drink – I used Hawaiian Punch
  • Ice
  • (2) 4″ Half Foam Balls
  • (2) Brown felt circles – 3 inches wide
  • (2) black felt circles – 2&1/2 inches wide
  • (2) yellow foam triangles with a curved center – Mine is about 3″ x 4″, but you’ll probably adjust that to the size of your container
  • Fabri Tac Glue – This is my alternative to hot glue and it does such a great job. Honestly, this is the only glue that I would use in this craft.
  • Glue stick – for a backup glue

  • Assemble the eyes by gluing the brown felt circles to the white balls
  • *I made mine off-centered. In a lot of Finding Dory images, the pupils are kind of to the side
  • Glue the black felt over the brown
  • *I did the same with the black. I made them off-centered
  • Now, using the fabric-tac glue, add some glue to the backs of the foam balls
  • Stick them onto the glass container and then take them off
  • Let the glue on the container and the glue on the balls, set up and begin to get sticky for about 1 minute
  • Place the eyes back onto the container – they should stick now without falling
  • Follow the same procedure for the fins
  • When you’re ready to party, fill the container with ice and the drink

Tips and tricks for making this Finding Dory Drink Idea…

  • Be careful in transporting the finished creation to the party table. You don’t want to pull an eye off
  • Everything should stick just fine. If the glue can’t handle the condensation and something falls off…use the glue stick to re-stick the stuff. It does a good job with condensation.
  • Don’t worry though, my pieces didn’t fall off at all! I actually had to pull the eyes off
  • *I’m going to insert a suggestion for those of you that are worried about gluing something to your container.  Try a little experiment to set your mind at ease with inexpensive glass. See if the glue comes off of that when you need it to.

    I can attest to my experience with my particular glass container. I know this glue really well. We go way back. I use it all of the time. I had “zero” worries when I glued this to my glass container.

    When I pull the stuff off clean or is my container ruined?

      I can not attest for every type of container, but I have used this glue, over and over, throughout my crafting days and I know it well. I happened to use a glass container and my container is as good as new. This particular glue is a lot like a sticky gel. It should pull right off. In some cases you might need to rub it off with a wet cloth. If you are really worried, you might want to test it out on a similar surface, like an inexpensive glass.

    My granddaughter recently turned 3 and had a finding dory birthday party and we used ur idea of the dory drink container and it was a huge hit and so easy to do. I even achieved an awesome Hank rescuing dory in the coffee pot cake. My granddaughter loved every second of that party thanks for the great idea!!!!!!
