Are you running out of ideas for your children’s birthday party? Do you want to make it unique but freak out at the thought of screaming kids in your living room? Are you tired of the same old dozens of cupcakes? Are you scratching your head, trying to come up with activities that are fun, not too messy, and appropriate for their age?
The challenge with children’s birthday parties is the amount of energy it requires before (to organize it) and during (to manage it). Sure, you can Google for inspiration. The site parents.com lists some odd (even, actually) 34 ideas to keep the children entertained (and potentially reveal the next Martha Stewart in one of them). What on earth are you supposed to pick that will be easy to deploy and not cost you a fortune at Michael’s? Is there anything new, fresh, inventive in the realm of kids party ideas that will not involve a piñata?
Have you ever considered cooking classes for children’s birthday parties?
Let us explain.
Children Are Born Chefs
From an early age, children sit on a high chair at the kitchen counter and watch you cook or bake. Soon, they ask if they can help. Depending on their age, there are various tasks you can entrust them to.
Kids love cooking. And that is good news, especially if you’re trying to plan children’s birthday parties. Pulling them away from electronics so they can express their creativity and thirst to learn is the best thing you can do. First, they learn about food, kitchen rules, techniques. Second, they feel more responsible, eager to do well. The mere fact of participating in dinner preparation is an accomplishment they are proud of. Put simply; it helps them grow.
Which brings us to the core of our question: What will you do for the next children’s birthday parties? Enroll your child and his/her friends in a birthday cooking class!
Birthday Cooking Class for Children
You parents sit back and relax. Junior Chef San Diego takes care of everything. You can enjoy tea, coffee, some dessert (a must at any birthday) and we spend time with the children, teaching them recipes. The birthday cooking class for children is very participative, so every kid gets in on the action. They not only will leave with some amazing cooking tips and 2 recipes, but they will also proudly show their apron and chef hat. There will be, of course, a birthday cake, and candles to blow. Most importantly, there will be a precious memory for all of them to have been a part of the kitchen brigade for a couple of hours.
- Discovering teamwork
- Playful learning
- No sugar high from too much candy
- Going home with 2 recipes they can make at home with you
- No need to call upon other parents to help manage the group
- No spending hours baking cupcakes (or spending too much buying them), only to see them half-eaten or all over the floor).
We are sure you will enjoy watching the positive energy and synergy of the group in this new way to celebrate children’s birthday parties. This is always a success and kids tend to ask for more. And in case you’re worried they will get so much better at cooking than you, you can sign up for our happiness-inducing adult cooking classes, too!
