Kids in the Kitchen – Boo’s Birthday

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen, which is a little different as it was Boo’s Birthday and we had a cookery party.

Last year I held a Frozen Party in the garden for her, it was a lovely sunny day and we had loads of games and even some snow! This year, however, I decided to do something different. She invited just a few of her school friends and along with her siblings we cooked the party food together.

I’d recently been sent a lovely party pack from Party Bags and Supplies. Boo had asked for an Animal Jam Cake which I made myself, so I figured that the Safari Adventure Party pack would be ideal. I received:
8 cups and plates, 16 napkins, 1 table cover and 8 filled party bags each containing – 1 soft wild animal mask, 1 clockwork insect, 1 wild animal sticker sheet and 1 wild animal tatto.
The pack is £26.99 to purchase.

I was really pleased with the pack, delivery was quick and the price was in line with other party supply companies. I love the convenience of buying everything together in a matching pack.

I am saving the party bags to give away at the Little Man’s birthday in a couple of weeks, but the table looked lovely for Boo’s party today.

To start the party we made Rocky Road. The kids enjoyed breaking up the chocolate and biscuits while I melted the chocolate, golden syrup and butter on the hob. I poured a third of the chocolate mixture into a bowl and the kids added the biscuits to the pan, followed by some mini marshmallows. They put the mixture into a tin and poured the remaining chocolate over the top. We then put it in the fridge to set.

We then had a little art activity but I’ll tell you all about that later.

Then it was time for pizza! And guess, what? We had so much fun making it I forgot to take any photos! We had a little production line going with one child putting on the tomato base, the next child sprinkling on the cheddar, the next crumbling on the mozzarella and finally adding the pepperoni. We made four altogether with the children all taking turns. I did manage to get a snap of two uncooked pizzas! (don’t worry, I didn’t cook them on the hob!)

Finally, the thing they had all been waiting for…dessert! I left them with ice cream, fresh fruit, sprinkles and sauce and they each made their own knickerbocker glory!

Before they went home we sang Happy Birthday to the Birthday girl and she blew out her number 8 candle on her Animal Jam Cake.

Then I gave them all a little bag with a couple of pieces of Rocky Road inside to take home.

We had a lovely time and it was great fun having so many kids in the kitchen.

Sending out a big thank you to ET Speaks From Home and her amazing Carrot Cupcake Ice Cream Cones for linking up last week.
Also, thank you to The Giggles Family for their Easy Sweet Green Smoothie Recipe.

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)

    Sounds a great party. We have never made rocky road – I am ashamed to say that I did not realise it was that simple – thank you for sharing.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
