Age characteristics

Children at this age relate well to other children and are very enthusiastic. They understand the idea of a birthday party, and can anticipate it months in advance. They tend to latch on to their closest friends so make sure to invite them. Kids at this age also tend to like helping with the planning so give them the opportunity to help throw their favorite birthday party.

Guest list

Many children at this age are in school or pre-school so your guest list can be made up of your child’s schoolmates. Although many children are in school and used to being away from their parents, some children may need to be accompanied by an adult.

Length of party

1-1 1/2 hours

Entertainment for age

This age group has short attention spans, so the entertainment program for the party should consist of a few different activities- around five. A mixture of hands-on and learning is always a great combo. Children at this age can participate in the Bake-a-Cake party, our best selling party.

Safety for age

Make sure the party area is childproof and have a couple of adults on hand to help keep children together and the party organized.

Party Fun & Games

Children will love to mix batter, measure ingredients, color frosting and make flowers with pastry bags using a variety of different tips. Have plenty of tips and frosting ready to go so that all the kids can become involved. See more instructions on how to create this birthday party in Linda Kaye’s Bake-a-Cake Party Book.

Party Leader

The adult “chef” should be able to lead the children in the baking and decorating of the birthday cake. The children do all the work under the direction of the leader.

Party Tunes

Classical music is the perfect background so children can listen to directions and focus on the activity.

Party Refreshments

Let them eat cake! But a few savory items beforehand. The kids will want to eat their cake more than anything so make sure their meal isn’t so filling that they can’t have their slice of cake afterward. Serve these beverages in these cute Pink Cupcake Cups (8)  which match the theme perfectly and prevent unwanted spills!Pink Cupcake Cups (8)

Use these placemats at the dining table to mark each child’s seat.

Party Finale

Party guests will be proud as can be, to see their creations lit up on the birthday cake and even happier when they have their first taste.

Birthday Presents & Favors

Make the chef hat and apron that the children wear be part of their favor. Include a copy of  Linda Kaye’s Bake-a-Cake Party Book and maybe a Cupcake mix kit or game so that the children can replicate the baking at home without all the hassle. Or even this little chef set.

Party Tips

Don’t let the children handle the oven or hot pans under any condition. Be sure the height of the table is appropriate to the age of the children so when they are standing they are able to comfortably reach the table to work at it. We recommend putting a plastic runner under the baking table for easy cleanup.
