Halloween party food for kids

Boys will absolutely love this and best of all, it’s so incredibly easy to do!

Ingredients (serves 8 kids):

1 large round pizza base

120 ml Tomatoe puree

180g Grated cheddar cheese

7-10 Mini mozzarella balls

7- 10 Salami slices

A few black olives

You can buy the pizza base or use our own pizza dough recipe to make it yourself.

Spread the tomatoe puree over the base. Be very generous. Sprinkle on a good amount of cheese. Then add on the salami slices. Place in a preheated oven set to 180 degrees celcius. Cook for approx. 12-15 mins. When the pizza’s nearly cooked, take it out of the oven and place the mini mozzarella balls on top of each salami slice. For extra gore factor you can use a spoon or your finger to add some tomaote on the mini mozzarella balls, to create the blood shot eye effect. Slice up the black olives and place one slice on top of each eye ball. Then replace back into the oven to melt the mozzarella balls a bit. Leave in the oven for about 5 more minutes. Keep an eye on it to make sure the mozzarella balls don’t melt too much. And voila a funky, slimy, gooey, eye ball pizza – perfect for every kids party!!

Halloween Party Food: Super Cool Snail Sandwiches

Snail Sandwiches for halloween

A fantastically fun way to get kids to eat their sandwiches.

 

 

Ingredients (makes about 28 snail sandwiches):

4 medium sized tortilla wraps

28 Small gherkins

Chives

Salami (or another choice of filling)

Lettuce (or another choice of filling)

margarine

 

 

Lay your tortilla wrap flat on a work surface. Cut off the rounded ends of the wrap to make it square. Spread a thin layer of margarine over the wrap, then put on some lettuce and salami. (you can use any filling instead of lettuce and salami so long as it’s colourful and not too fiddly, like jam, cream cheese and salmon, ham, etc…)

Next, roll up the tortilla wrap nice and tight. Then cut the roll into about 7 or more slices.

Place each roll onto a plate so it is standing up.

Next take your gherkins and slice off the end of each one at an angle. Pierce 2 holes into the top of the uncut end and insert the chives for the antennas. (you could tie a knot at the end of each chive to create the effect of the eyes if you want)

Next, slot the gherkin snail body just underneath each roll. The sliced end should fit snugly into each roll.

 

You can use white bread instead of tortilla wraps for this. Just take the crusts off and then use a rolling pin to flatten the bread out a bit before starting.

Froggle Crazy Egg Faces

Frogg;e's Crazy Egg faces

Here at Froggle Parties, we love kids party food ideas!!  These sandwich faces are heaps of fun and have huge amounts of character. They’re great for parties and you might even like to get the kids to help you make them.

You could make it an activity at your party where the kids make their own froggle faced sandwich.  Simply lay out a table with lots of ready prepared ingredients and get the kids to make their own faces with them. You could give a prize to some of the best face designs.

Ingredients (makes 4 egg faces):

4 slices of brown or white bread

7 medium eggs

4 tbsp mayonaise

Salt and pepper

Heat some water in a large sized saucepan and put your eggs into a saucepan once the water has started to boil. Boil the eggs for 8 minutes. The egg yolk should be solid. You can always take one egg out first and check that it’s cooked before taking the rest of them out of the saucepan. Once cooked, peel the eggs. Take 2 of the eggs and slice them up (you should get atleast 4 decent slices per egg which will be used as eyes). Set the egg slices to one side.

Put the rest of the eggs and any left over cuttings into a mixing bowl and add the mayonanaise. Mix it all up with a fork and use the fork to mash the egg up as you mix it with the mayonannise.

Simply spread on the egg mayonnaise mix and then use the toppings to make the faces.

If you want, instead of egg mayonnaise you could use peanut butter or jam, which saves a bit of time.

Topping ides: gherkins, carrot sticks, grated carrot, peas, olives, tomatoes peppers, celery sticks, salami, cucumber, chives, basil…

Children’s Entertainers and Themed Parties in Surrey and London

Photo from Doodle-cakes.com

Parents find it so hard to find children’s entertainers in Surrey and London that offer something genuinely different.

Children’s themed parties are so popular with kids but they always seem to be the same pirate and princess parties or superheroes or fairies.  What if you’re looking something different like a dinosaur themed party or a wild west themed party. Finding children’s entertainers in Surrey and London to offer a dinosaur party is very difficult. There are loads of children’s entertainers in Surrey and London but the choice seems to be the same wherever you turn. There are tonnes of children’s entertainers in Surrey who seem to specialise in pirate parties alone. Is there really that much demand for just pirate children’s entertainers? Apparently so.

Admittedly, children like all the usual activities you’d expect in a children’s party, like magic, games, dancing, puppet shows, balloon modelling and general fun to keep them amused for 1 or 2 hours whilst parents sort out food in the kitchen.  But it’s nice to find a children’s entertainer that can add that little bit of magic to the party by offering something a bit different.  Here at Froggle Parties, we are children’s entertainers in Surrey and London and cover Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex and Kent. We have over 40 different themes to choose from including really different ones like chocolate Factory, Toys, Unicorns and Hawaiian. Our children’s entertainers cram in loads of activities like magic, games, dancing, balloon modelling, prizes, rocket balloons, bubble and snow machines, puppet show – all in one party. Plus we offer to dress up as the character of the theme you want and have over 40 themes to choose from. Furthermore we have free themed invitations, thank you notes, certificates, posters and name stickers for every theme we offer – and they’re all free. Our themed parties mean your children’s entertainers will put the children inside the story and take them on a magical make believe adventure where they all win prizes at the end.

What is important is that out of all the children’s entertainers in Surrey, you find someone who can offer something different to what you’ve seen before, but that you know kids are going to like.

You only get to do this once a year for your little one and you want to make it fun and special for them.

Childrens Party Food ideas: Chessboard Sandwich

Childrens party food ideas - Childrens Parties

Children's Party Food Ideas - Chessboard Sandwich

Ingredients (makes 40 mini sandwiches to serve about 15 kids):

 

Medium sliced white and brown bread (10 slices of each)

Your choice of sandwich filling

Cherry tomatoes and olives

 

 

Decide on your filling and fill the sandwiches accordingly.

Simple fillings are best: Ham and cucumber, cream cheese, jam, peanut butter, cheese and tomatoe or tuna mayonnaise are good ideas.

Do keep all your fillings the same though so that the height of the sandwiches are even when you come to laying them out on the plate to make the chess board.

Once you have made the sandwiches, slice off the crusts with a serated knife.

Then cut your crust less sandwiches into 4 squares.

Find a large, flat serving plate to put the sandwiches on and lay out the sandwiches to form a chess/ checkers board pattern, alternating between white and brown.

Then place the tomatoes and olives o ntop. You could use grapes instead if you like or those cheese ball crisps.

Childrens Party Food Ideas: Sandwich Boats

Childrens' party Food ideas: Sandwich Boats

Ingredients: (makes 40 mini sandwiches. Serves about 15 kids):

White or brown bread (20 slices)

Your choice of sandwich filling

1 large whole cucumber

40 Cocktail sticks

20 Cherry tomatoes

20 medium slices of Salami or 10 large slices cut in half

Decide on your filling and fill the sandwiches accordingly. Simple fillings are best. Ham and cucumber, cheese and tomatoe or tuna mayonnaise are good ideas.

Once you have made the sandwiches, slice off the crusts.

Then cut each sandwiches into 4 triangles. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Next place one on the top of each sandwich triangle so the flat side is facing down.

Now make the sails for your boats. Slice the cucumber into long strips by cutting it at an angle and then skewer the ends of each slice onto a cocktail stick. Attach the cocktail stick by sticking it into the cherry tomatoe.

Do the same with the salami sails. If the slices of salami are big you can halve them or you can use slightly smaller slices. Either way works fine.

Next place on a serving platter and you’re ready to go.

You might also like to try using thin cheese slices to make the sails as well.

Organising a childrens themed party

Childrens Themed Parties

Childrens Themed Parties -Pirate Party

Childrens Themed Parties

Below is a step by step guide on how to organise your childrens themed party:

1) Decide on your theme – Give you child 3 or 4 choices and see what they’d prefer. bear in mind that they can change their mind every few days so it’s best to go for something generic like pirates/ princess/superheroes/ fairies/ knights/ under the sea/ jungle/ dinosaurs/ Hawaaian – these tend to be very popular ones. If it’s a childrens themed party for boys and girls then you can have a combination of pirates and princesses or knights and princesses etc…

2) Next decide on your date and check you can find a venue for it. (That’s if you’re not having it your childrens party at home)

3) Once your date is confirmed and the venue is booked send out the invitations ASAP. Usually at least 3-4 weeks before the party to avoid clashing with other parents having a party at the some time as your child’s party.

4) Book your children’s entertainer. There are loads of kids entertainers to choose from, esp[ecially in Surrey and London areas and you can read our blog on advice for how to find good ones. This site has tonnes of listings for childrens entertainers in Surrey, London and all the home counties. If you’re not having an entertainer then decide on the activites you’re having to entertain the kids at the party.

5) Other optional things to think about:

a) You might want to get the kids to dress up according to your theme. If so then mention this in your invitations so kids can have fun dressing up.

b) Decorations – you may or may not want to have decorations associated with your party, but if you’re taking the trouble to theme the party then it’s way more fun to do something with decorations.

c) Party plates, and other tableware.

6) Childrens Themed Party Food– you may want to do some fairly normal party food and there are of ideas on our blog about easy party food ideas but if you want to go that one step further then why not theme the food too. The list for party food ideas is endless. We’ve found loads of ideas that we’ve put in our blog and we add new ones regularly.

7) Birthday cake – If you’re having a themed party then you can’t miss the great opportunity to have a themed birthday cake. This book by Annie Rigg for birthday cake ideas is simply wonderful.

You can make your party as creative as you want depending on how much time you have.

If you’re looking for a good childrens entertainer in Surrey, London or any of the home counties then Froggle Parties offers loads of themes for childrens parties. With over 40 themes and free themed invitations and free thank you notes, free name stickers and free certificates.
