Last Saturday we hosted a Cooking Party sampler to give our clients and friends a taste of what happens at a Cooking Party so that they know the details BEFORE booking their own party of this kind.
The fabulous Hannah does our cooking parties for Party Things Online and she did not disappoint. It is an action packed 2 hours of activities, and is hosted at The Bay in the Constantia sports complex, but you also have the option to have it at your home.
Events started off with some free time to play and the venue had a lovely play area as well as the huge rugby field where they could run around. The first task for all the kids after all had arrived was to don their aprons and make their chefs hats by decorating with stickers and writing their name on it.
Once the little chefs were all ready and looking the part, it was time to get into the cooking part of the party. Our selected thing we wanted to cook was a chicken pie and Hannah came prepared with all the ingredients to make up this awesome winter meal. She also brings all the cooking utensils appropriate for little hands to work with, mini rolling pins, plastic knives, etc.
The kids loved being in charge of cooking and were all so good at listening to the instructions that were provided step by step. Even some of the adults were amazed at how Hannah made it so easy to follow. In no time the pies were ready and whisked off to the kitchen for baking.
There was then time for some eats and drinks and free play, and this would normally be when you sang Happy Birthday and cut the cake at a birthday party.
While the pies were cooking, the next activity was to decorate the boxes that were to be used to put the pies in afterwards to take home.
After all the cooking activities, Hannah always plans a craft. Because I had chosen the theme of the party for decor and eats to be Garden Creatures, she decided the kids could make a pot plant by planting seeds.
We were amazed at how quickly the time went and how much fitted into that time. The kids loved it and so did the parents and many agreed that the R120 per child is well worth it considering all you get for it.
It was fabulous. Thanks so much. I thought Hannah relayed and interacted with the kiddies so well and was very creative – Janine
The kids thoroughly enjoyed the class. Guess what we had for supper last night and who the chefs were?? They both had to have their hats on because Jake told Rachel that she cannot be a chef unless she has her hat on – Tanya
The cooking party was so awesome and the kids had so much fun! Definitely worth R120, as kids got so much for that and were entertained the whole time – Lauren
