I had never even heard of these until my granddaughter asked if she could have one at mine because ‘mummy wouldn’t let her’, but after a little digging I found out that kids cooking parties are actually quite popular.
In fact, I’m quite in love with the idea myself, as there is something to suit all age groups, even teenagers.
What does it involve?
Essentially the idea behind these cooking parties is to show kids how to make an assortment of different foods: from homemade pizzas and fruit kebabs, to cakes, chewy biscuits and chocolate shapes, for a fee of approximately £10.50 per child.
For this sum, the party organisers will:
- Arrive 30 minutes before the party to set up the room and equipment
- Provide all the ingredients and equipments (including baking trays, gloves, aprons for the kids and plastic covering for your table)
- Get give each kid a certificate of achievement at the end
And it really is an incredible idea, if you’ve got the kitchen space, a good group of kids and are not afraid of a little mess.
I’m throwing one for Emily next week – yes she persuaded me – and I can’t wait to give it a try.
