Sometimes, the best kid's birthday party ideas are the most simple themes that happen right at your own home. What great memories for your child to look around their house every day and remember what fun they had with their special friends and family. And, it's way less expensive! Sure there's a little more clean-up, but maybe it's worth it for so many happy memories.
Here's a great party idea for younger kids that is big on creativity and easy on the budget. A Little Chefs Cooking Party!
Ms. Paperlicious' little beans were recently invited to a cooking party that they still talk about as being one of their favorites. The super-creative mom had all the details covered.
She chose these cute little cooking party invitations from Paperlicious:
First, the kids decorated their very own hot pink kid-sized aprons that she purchased at a craft store. She had fabric pens, puffy pain, paint brushes and stencils. The result is still a favorite play item in the toy kitchen!
Then they moved to the dining room where they decorated their own pizza with sauce, cheese, and toppings. She bought pre-made dough at the grocery store and rolled out little 5" rounds from the dough. Yum!
While the pizzas were cooking, the kids decorated their own cupcake with toppings like chocolate covered marshmallows, m&ms, and sugar hearts. Check out these stellar creations!
The best part was they got to look at their cupcakes while they gobbled up their pizza. A great way to motivate a kid to eat a few veggies!
As you can see, the theme was pink, pink and more pink. Easily a color you can find at any super-store or party store.
Check back next Tuesday for another great party tip!
