This party works well with a smaller birthday group. I let my kids invite as many kids as can fit at our dinner table. So in our case she invited 7 friends. First thing I did was make Chefs hats for all of the girls, I used the directions from here.
For the party
The first thing we did was make personal pizzas. I gave each of the girls one or two Pillsbury Grand refrigerator biscuits. They smashed them flat to form a crust
then they added sauce and all the other toppings.
While the personal pizzas were baking in the oven they used fabric markers to decorate their white aprons, they also made fruit salad to go with their pizza.
Once they were done eating and decorating their apron, we did the presents. Once presents were done they came back to the table and they finished up by decorating their own cupcake. Then we sent them home with a fun party favor.
The Party Favor
First I get a bowl and fill it up with various kitchen items. The first time I did a bowl, spoon, sugar cookie mix, cookie cutters, and pot holders.
This time I went with a cupcake theme. So we did a bowl, potholders, cupcake pan, cake mix, icing and a spoon. Then I wrapped that all up in clear plastic wrapping paper.
I just got it all from the dollar store, and some of the stuff comes in packages of more than one, like the potholders, bowls and spoons. I think it works out to be around $ 3.75 per party favor.
