Children's Birthday Cooking Party Ideas & Invitations

Trying to decide what theme to use for your kid's birthday can be exciting or can give you anxiety.  I love planning birthday parties and take great joy in each and every one I get to plan.  Last year, we had a Ratatouille cooking party for my six year old.  It was loads of fun with coordinated invitations, cake, games and so much more.

I purchased child size inexpensive aprons and chef hats from Oriental Trading Company which served as station one to greet the kids when they arrived.  With the help of foam letter stickers and markers, each child was able to add their name to the apron and decorate both the hat and apron to uniquely fit their personality.  It also took time to allow everyone to arrive and they were able to take home their aprons and hats since their names made it easy to sort.

After the decorating, Ratatouille was playing on the big screen TV and I had Ratatouille decorations all over the house.  The second stage was the pizza making area.  I bought several toppings and frozen pizza dough from our local Publix.  Each girl had their own little rolling pin to take home and they were able to make their own little pizza.  Once they were done with that, they moved to the cupcake decorating station and I purchased boxes so they could take their cupcakes home.  We had many toppings and icing to make each one special.

While the pizza cooked and cooled, we went outside and played some games for prizes and broke open the pinata.  We then ate pizza and had a delicious Ratatouille cake that I had specially made from a local at home baker.

Opening presents ended the finale with each girl expressing how much fun it was and each parent telling me how brave I was.   It was great fun!

I customized my own invitations, t-shirts, posters and button from Zazzle.

Great Christmas Gift Idea for Kids Who Loves to Cook

My six year old took up a love for cooking after seeing Ratatouille.  She has custom aprons that I made her from Zazzle but I haven't bought her anything like this.  I'm really considering this because it's so cute.

Even though it's $63.95 at http://www.cooking.com/, I think it's too adorable to pass up and it is made of up all recycled or earth friendly material.  The set includes:

  • Large Silicone Mixing Spatula
  • Silicone Pastry Brush
  • Large Poly Spoon
  • Whisk
  • Nylon Cookie Turner
  • Nonstick Rolling Pin
  • Kitchen Timer
  • 6-pc. Measuring Spoon Set: 1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1/2 tbsp, 1 tbsp
  • 6-pc. Measuring Cup Set: 1/4 cup, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup, 2/3 cup, 3/4 cup, 1 cup
  • 3-qt. Mixing Bowl with Lid
  • Bear Cookie Cutter
  • Flower Cookie Cutter
  • Butterfly Cookie Cutter
  • Adjustable Child Chef's Apron
  • Child Chef's Hat
  • 2 Oven Mitts
The lesser expensive one's look great too.  There are a variety to choose from so it's going to be really hard figuring out what to buy her.

This custom pizza kit has:
  • Large Silicone Mixing Spatula
  • Silicone Pastry Brush
  • Nylon Pizza Cutter
  • Nylon Pizza Server
  • Nonstick Rolling Pin
  • Large Nylon Plastic Knife
  • Tomato Cutting Board
  • Set of 4 Party Hats and Aprons
Putting these in a kid's theme bowl or box would make a decorative finishing touch.

Ratatouille Cooking Birthday Party Idea

http://www.zazzle.com/jbranamMy six year old loves to cook thanks to Ratatouille so what better birthday party idea than a cooking party! We started with customized party invitations that I made on Zazzle and bought the matching stamps.

The cake was ordered from a local cake baker who knows how to make terrific looking cakes.

For the party, I bought enough small rolling pins for each of the guests and had an assortment of pizza toppings (not all shown). I had two kitchen stations set up and bought pre-made frozen pizza dough from Publix.
When the girls arrived, they went to the first station which was to decorate their aprons with their names using self-adhesive foam letters all purchased from Oriental Trading Company along with the paper, tall, adjustable chef hats which the girls really liked. I bought the multi-color aprons in case any boys showed up. We put their spelled out names in baggies and set each one up at an apron upon their arrival. When they entered, there was a large Ratatouille posted hanging to make it look like a cafe.
The decorations were purchased at Birthday Direct.
They then took their place at one of the tables and made their pizza. While the pizza was cooking, they dipped pretzels in chocolate and laid them on wax paper to cool and they frosted their own cupcakes.
Each girl received a favor box of Ratatouille goodies and a box for their customized cupcake.
After we ate, we sang happy birthday, had cake, opened presents and busted open a pinata. It was a success!
