The Sweetest Sweet 16 Party
Turning 16 is such a milestone and many parents want to mark it with a special celebration. Entertaining teenagers can be a challenging task, but the right activities can make the party event a blast. Your birthday teen is guaranteed to have sweet memories of this special day.
Sweets and More Sweets
It's always a good idea to have an activity ready for guests as they arrive. A creative ice-breaker can help to set the tone for the party. I provided small treat boxes for the guests and they wrote their name on a box as soon as they arrived. Stickers were provided for decoration if they wanted. Next, they were invited to make chocolates. Candy molds were set out and I had squeeze bottles filled with melted chocolate. Once the chocolates set, the guests filled their treat boxes to take home.
For this spectacular party, guests will need to bring a swimsuit and towel. Make sure they know that things might get a bit sticky.
The usual party activities take place indoors such as opening gifts and eating cake. The main activity needs to be the last event.
The last activity is making Human Sundaes. For this activity you will need:
- water hose
- a variety of flavored syrups
- whipped cream in a can (6-8 cans)
Set up the Slip-n-Slide and have the guest line up along the side. They will be armed with flavored syrup and whipped cream cans. Each guest takes a turn running down the slide as the other guests squirt toppings on them.
