Candy Land

Digg!

Today I'm excited to share with you about a party I had recently with the mom's in my MOPS group.  I was approached by MyBlogSpark and Hasbro and asked if I'd like to host a Candy Land party and I said yes immediately.  Candy Land was my favorite game growing up.  I love the colorful board and all of the really cool cards.  So I knew this would be fun.

We had a mom's night out with my MOPS group and we all came together to play Candy Land. The party was such fun because we all either wore our pjs or we wore our favorite sports teams sweatshirt.  The point was to party in comfort!  When everyone heard we would be playing Candy Land, they were excited. 

Everyone who came had a great time playing the game.  We had a bunch of heavy appetizers and of course I had to make mini cupcakes in honor of the cupcake card on the board. Some of the mom's were so funny and said they were doing mini cupcake "shots". We are a wild bunch. LOL

MyBlogSpark was kind enough to send enough copies of Candy Land that every mom got to take one home. 

It was nice to take a break, spend time with friends and play a fun game.  I highly recommend if you don't have a copy of Candy Land go and buy one now.  This would be a great thing to do on Christmas day with your family together.  Or if you are busy that day, our family has a New Year's Eve get together where we play games and Candy Land would be a great game for that.  Who doesn't love getting to pick their own Gingerbread Man game piece?  And of course it makes a great gift with Christmas coming.

Here is a shot of the ladies playing. We didn't take many pictures since we were in our pjs. :)

I would give Candy Land to my daughter. She loves to play go fish and I know she's ready for board games, and of course this is a perfect boardgame for kids

Candy Land is the PERFECT first board game. I'd give it to (and play many, many, MANY times with) my 2 y.o. son. Oh, and since my 12 y.o. was so keen on Candy Land when he was little, he can play, too!
