Children's Cooking Party

Here is a charming post on hosting a cooking themed birthday party for kids.  While a great idea for a birthday, 
it's perfect anytime.  Children are usually so grateful to have a chance to get their hands in some flour.  Even a bit of dough will keep a child entertained.  A very smart waiter at Il Fornaio gave my very young granddaughter pizza dough to play with while waiting for dinner to arrive.  After pummeling that bit of dough into countless shapes, she brought it home, baked and then painted it.  Looped with a ribbon, that pizza dough hung on the wall for years.


  1. Thanks for sharing! What a cool idea. Can't wait to do this with my little cousins:)

  2. How adorable. What an empathic gesture by that chef.

  3. I am so going to do this!!! What a wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing.
