Kids love to spend time in the kitchen, so time to plan a chef or cooking party with these great birthday kid party ideas!

The key to having a successful chef inspired party is organization.

You'll need to have activities planned to keep the kids occupied while their food is cooking.

You'll also want to have everythiing laid out and planned out to minimize mess!

Consider how many cooks will fit into your kitchen comfortably, and use that to determine the number of guests you can invite.

A little careful front-end planning can create a really memorable and fun party.


Easy Party Invitations

An easy and inexpensive idea is to use Recipe Cards (Amazon Link) for your invitation.

You could also make a mock recipe book, with the ingredient for a party: mix friends, laughter, food, etc.

What to cook?

Some fun ideas of what to cook or create might be:

  • Individual Lasagnas
  • Individual Pizzas
  • Make and/or Decorate Cookies
  • Make and/or Decorate Cupcakes
  • Make and/or Decorate Gingerbread Houses

Do you notice a trend?

Whatever you decide to prepare, it is best to plan to make something that can be assembled with minimal cooking.

The two items on this list (pizza and lasagna) are easily assembled and then put into the oven to bake.

Then it is game time!
