Teen Beach 2 just calls out for a fun filled movie party, and my daughter’s recently planned one complete with limbo dancing, slumber party-ing, and swimming as reminders of the first Teen Beach Movie followed by even more fun, food, crafts and games for all their friends to enjoy.
Planning one teen and tween terrific Teen Beach 2 party
Movies: Your party should absolutely start with the Teen Beach 2 movie. It is available for pre-order right now on Amazon or you can wait till Friday night, June 26, 2015 for the premiere on the Disney Channel. Personally, I want the DVD because we can avoid commercials during the party and there are some fun and fabulous bonus features. Thanks to the early storms and rains in the middle of our pool party this party planning mom shifted gears and turned it into a movie marathon. Thanks to Amazon Instant Video I was able to have them start with the original Teen Beach after we escaped the rain and storms. But then again, how appropriate since a storm is how it all began!
Music: Pick up the Teen Beach 2 soundtrack as well as the Teen Beach karaoke soundtrack. Not only was it fabulous music to get everyone in the mood for the movie, but great fun to sing and dance to, especially as we recreated scenes from the first Teen Beach with a limbo contest and dance off.
Limbo and Lingo! Do you remember the scene from the first Teen Beach movie where Brady and Mack have just arrived in the movie and everyone introduces themselves as they go under the limbo bar? We turned the music on, sang the song and everyone announced their name as they slid under it! (We had tweens in the 10 year old range.
Up next, the Lingo Game. I printed out this Teen Beach Lingo Bingo Game . The kids watched Teen Beach and we had prizes for the winners of the Lingo Bingo Game.
Fun and fabulous food! Every good party needs to have good food, and the recipes for Teen Beach 2 offer up not just tasty, but terrific foods that are fun to eat.
Crafts and Take Home Gift: With the rains coming in we had to make a run for the house, and let’s face it kids can only sit still for so long (even more reason to get the DVD! The kids were excited to try their hands on the many crafts that are available with these fun and free printables. Their favorite was the box puzzles, which we filled with movie candy to take home for them to enjoy next Friday night with their family as they watch Teen Beach 2 on the Disney Channel at 8 p.m. ET on June 26, 2015.
Beach Blanket Beauty: Just like in the first Teen Beach movie we had a slumber party. Our girls were dressed to impress in their finest Disney pajamas. My daughter couldn’t wait to wear her Teen Beach pajamas. This girls braided each other’s hair and we even took some time to do each other’s nails. Let’s not forget about the brand new Teen Beach 2 towels which were a must after we got out of the pool!
Parting party gifts: Teen Beach 2 is all about self – confidence and friendship. The DVD comes with it’s on friendship necklace just like Mack and Leila shared. Our parting gift to our friends was a pearl necklace, like the one pictured here (just the pearls not the flowers) to each of our overnight guests. As one of the girls said,
“Now we can have our best friends near our heart all the time.”
It’s possible to plan one terrific Teen Beach 2 party, but it’s not possible to plan exactly how happy it will make the kids that participate in it. Her parting hugs and message made all the hard work worthwhile. That’s what Teen Beach 2 is all about after all, friendship. watch Teen Beach 2 on the Disney Channel at 8 p.m. ET on June 26, 2015, and you will see what I mean.
