No joke: my soon to be 8-year-old has requested an Oregon Trail Birthday Party! Whah?????? I can't help but think back to the time that she asked for a Candyland 5th birthday party in 2012. Since it is conveniently the photo album I need to work on next, I thought I would tell you about the time this happened:
A Peppermint Forrest:
You had to be careful and not to get stuck digging for treasure in Gloppy's Chocolate Swamp:
If you got too sticky, you could rinse off by spraying the dastardly Lord Licorice:
Along the way you could rest at a candy-colored seating area:
The fabulous St Louis Snow Sled showed up:
They offered all their regulars along with a specialty candy menu and a separate table with St. Louis' best pretzels and popcorn. If you know me, you know I had to add a cotton candy machine:
Back in the game, the kids were cooling off at our favorite spot on the game board, the Rainbow Slide:
As players completed the game, they were given a prize: a toothbrush and reminder to brush their teeth!!!
And with that, Baby's Candyland 5th was in the books! Now does anyone know how to throw an Oregon Trail party???!!!
