Party Ideas For Kids: Party Food Girls Love

Sep 9, 2008
If you are in the process of planning an 'all girls' party, the menu is probably the most important aspect of the event ... depending on age of the guests. Whatever you do, don't just throw together a few things at the last minute. The key to a great party is serving foods that girls love.

Most girls love to bake. You can easily take advantage of this fact and incorporate baking into the party festivities. Pizza is always a big hit. Purchase pre made pizza dough from the refrigerator case in the diary section. One medium pizza is enough to serve two girls. The day before the party grate cheeses, slice mushrooms, green peppers, pineapple, tomatoes, scallions, and onions. Offer sliced pepperoni pre cooked sausage, hamburger, chicken, and ham. Spinach, basil leaves, parsley, and other chopped fresh herbs can be offered as well. Put all the ingredients out, with tomato pizza sauce, and let the girls put together the pizza of their dreams. Whip up a salad and fruit smoothies in a variety of flavors. The girls will love you for it!

Girls can make giant cookies and decorate them before or after baking. Use the pre made cookie dough from the refrigerator case. Slice the cookies as directed but instead of baking individually; put four of the slices together to make a giant cookie. Top with chocolate, butterscotch, or peanut flavored baking chips, coconut, nuts, and mini candies.

A veggie tray accompanied by a variety of yummy dips is usually a pretty safe bet. Vegetables can include: broccoli florettes, mushrooms, cauliflower, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes and green, red, and yellow pepper strips. You can buy the dips already made or choose to make them yourself. Homemade dips will probably be more appreciated. To boost the nutrition of the dip make it with cottage cheese whirled smooth in a blender instead of the mayonnaise or sour cream. Or replace half of the mayonnaise/sour cream with the cottage cheese.

A fruit tray with strawberries, grapes, pineapple, and small whole peaches, plums, and nectarines is pretty and can stay at room temperature. Or slice the top off a medium seedless watermelon, scoop out the fruit with a melon baler, mix with frozen fruits and replace in the watermelon shell.

Another great idea for a girl's party is a 'potato bar'. There aren't many girls who dislike baked potatoes. Setting up this mini buffet will give them the opportunity to create the perfect, yummy, potato. Potatoes can be baked in advance and easily re-heated, in foil.

Serve a variety of toppings such as flavored butters, sour cream, homemade bacon bits, diced ham, broccoli florettes, olives, several different kinds of shredded cheese, salsa, sauted mushrooms and onions and anything else suitable enough to put on a potato. The potatoes can then be reheated in the oven so they're hot and any cheese is melted.

Take the bar theme to tacos, burritos, even mini hamburgers or hot dogs with lots of condiments. And of course there's always an ice cream sundae bar for dessert.

Actively involving the girls in the cooking process, or offering a food bar, gets the fun going fast and as a bonus each girl will find something she really likes to eat.
