When it comes to throwing a kids party it does not have to be a big deal. While many parents go all out on the snacks and treats at a party the kids will remember the fun they had far longer than the food. With that in mind here are some fun and easy kids’ party treats that will not take you a lot of effort to make:
Goldfish Cake Pops – Love the look of cake pops but hate the work involved? Do not spend a ton of money buying them. Instead make a simple version kids will love. Take a marshmallow and stick on a stick. Then dip the marshmallow in a simple icing of milk and powdered sugar dyed blue. When the icing begins to harden add a couple of Goldfish crackers to the sides to make a cute goldfish bowl pop.
Fruit Kabobs – Keeping it healthy and bright, use fruit to make a rainbow of colors for your kids’ party. Use a kabob stick and slide on strawberries, grapes and other fruit to make a fun rainbow treat. You can add cheese cube for extra flavor. Use all grapes to make a caterpillar or centipede and dot on a couple icing eyes for a fun effect.
Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes – What better treat is there for kids than ice cream and cake? Combine them in an easy to make dessert. Take ice cream cones, those kid friendly sugar ones, and fill with cake batter. Bake like cupcakes and then decorate with icing so they look like ice cream. Easy, fun and kids will love it.
Rainbow Crunch – We all know and love Rice Krispy Treats, but did you know you could make a colorful version that is perfect for a child’s party? Just use Trix cereal or Fruity Pebbles instead of Rice Krispy for a colorful and tasty treat kids will gobble down.
These are just a few of the fun and simple treats you can make for your child’s next party. Take a look online for more great ideas that are simple and easy on you and your wallet!
