How to Host a Successful Cookie Decorating Party For Kids + @KrogerCo $50 Gift Card Giveaway
I will be the first to admit that doing anything with your kids takes a lot of patience. That’s okay, right? Add a large dose of patience to this cookie decorating party and it is going to be awesome. If you plan on hosting a cookie decorating party at your house, you need these tips.
Make a list and check it twice
I love that my neighborhood Kroger has everything I need to help make this decorating cookie party a success! When it comes to doing something successfully, you need convenience but most importantly a list. When it comes to any cookie decorating party that I’m throwing, I am going to get everything in place before I have the kids start. Repeat after me, make a list, check it twice, and everything will turn out nice! Make sure to have all the sprinkles and cookie decorating supplies out, so everything is ready when the kids get there.
Do a little prepping before hand
What I love about the cookie decorating parties that I throw, is I do a lot of work beforehand, so I can enjoy time with my kids. I pre-bake my cookies before the kids get there. This makes decorating less stressful on the kids and myself. For easy decorating — put icing in clear ketchup bottles for squeezing.
If there is no time for baking, then you may want to consider a gingerbread cookie premade kit instead.
Make sure you have festive to go containers on hand
Beware of the sugar cookie high your guests will have after ingesting a ton of sugar cookies. Make sure they take some home with them! To solve this problem, I always have festive to go containers ready for the kids. Our guests love plopping their pretty festive cookies in these containers to take home with them.
Don’t forget to enjoy your cookies with some delicious hot chocolate!
Make cleanup a breeze
You know what my favorite part of having a cookie decorating party with kids is? When I can take all the trash and roll it up in the disposable table cloth and throw everything away, it’s a good day! An easy cleanup is the key to a stress-free cookie decorating party!
