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…

Fun birthday cake candles for childrens parties

Colour flamed candles for childrens parties

Colour flamed candles for childrens parties

Why settle for normal candles on a cake when there’s so many other fun options to choose from. We look for any opportunity we can find to jazz up childrens parties and add on all those magical touches. We’ve given a lot of advice on childrens party entertainers lately so we thought we’d have a look at some other fun party ideas.

We’ve come across a great kids party idea to make your birthday cake even more fun. – Coloured flame candles. There are a number of companies that sell them but we’ve suggested one in the link for you. We couldn’t see a price on the website but they’re being sold on amazon for just over £2 a pack.

Loads of other different candles for birthday cakes

1) Singing Candles – These actually play the happy birthday music for you (there’s a musical box underneath the individual candle)

2) Magic candles where the flames relight after you blow them out (an old favourite). We’ve found a great place to source these (see link below)

3) Lettered candles to write a special message on the cake

4) Themed candles like pirate candles or football shape candles to go with the theme of your choice. You can get any shaped candles for any kids party theme if you look around.

5) Or why not get some funky sparklers to add to the fun. These come in all sorts of great shapes and sizes. You could spell out your child’s name if you wanted.

6) Candle Fountains – These are great and create a real wow effect! It’s like having a mini firwork on your cake!

7) Our party favourite for chidlrens party cake candles was the all singing all dancing musical candle. It’s like a candle fountain, singing candle and a sparkler all in one!

Take a look at this link and you’ll see a video on a musical candle to see what we mean.

You’d be amazed by how much choice there is out there just for candles for childrens parties.

We found a great place to source pretty much all of these types of candles. They have a whole range plus other party supplies.

Whilst you’re in a colourful mood you might like to take a look at this blog we found for a rainbow cake.  It’s a great colourful cake and the candles would compliment it very nicely.
