At first i thought i was going to loose my mind, however i was proved wrong. It was easy go to a dollar store and buy tons of candy.
Next we played the actual board game (candy land) and whoever won got extra candy to take home!
After that we played a few of my teens favorite games. I had my girl pick out one friend and after everyone left she stayed behind and we took her and her friend out to eat and they stayed the night together.
Although parents are not thrilled at the idea of having candy as a theme for a party, the kids (well teens now) and i actually enjoyed ourselves.
Friendly Tip: If your teen wants to do something for his or her birthday that your not sure you would enjoy, at least think about it before rejecting the idea. You might end up being surprised!
