Candy Land Birthday Party

The theme for Molly's birthday party this year was Candy Land. What 6 year old wouldn't love a party with tons of candy?

I made the cake to look like the Candy Land board.

Cake with the cake board. It's wrapped in wrapping paper. My husband took pictures of Molly and made them look silly, which she thought was very funny.

I found these glass jars at the Dollar Tree and filled them with different kinds of candy. The kids got the stuffed toys last time we were in Hershey, PA.

The kids made the gingerbread house.

The inside of the cake. I colored the cake batter 6 different colors.

This is what the cake looked like before baking.

We cut posterboard into squares and taped them to the floor. I think I saw every kid follow the path at some point.

The invitation

I had gingerbread ornaments that the kids decorated with glitter glue.

My beautiful girl. Can't believe she's 6 already.

What an adorable idea! I'm cringing at the sugar high, but I know something like that would be a huge hit with my kids.

Filing this idea away! Thanks for sharing!
