Natalie had a cooking party since she loves to cook and bake. I bought small aprons at Michaels using 40% coupons and a big pack of colored Sharpie markers and let the kids decorate the aprons however they wanted to. I had written their names on the aprons beforehand. It was interesting to see how the kids decorated. One kid started to put math problems on their apron so then other kids followed suit.

We still weren't done by that point! Then it was time to make the rest of their lunch (the part was from 10:30-12:30). We had a lot of fruit and let the kids make their own fruit skewers and make a dip to go along with it. I had fluffy peanut butter, cool whip, vanilla yogurt, chocolate pudding, and marshmallow fluff Most of them mixed all of them together for their dip!
Then it was cake time. Each kid go their cake back and they got to choose which part of the cake they wanted to eat. We wrapped the rest up and they got to take it home (along with the rest of their sprinkles).
Natalie opened presents and then it was time for the kids to go home and the rest of us to get ready for the next party! I appreciated having 6 adults there (Marcie, Lisa, my mom and dad, and Brian and I). Thank you all for your help! Natalie's party was a success!
I didn't do traditional goody bags-their aprons, cake decorations, and cakes were their goody bags. I also printed some recipes that Natalie really likes that are easy to make and made a small cookbook for the kids to take home.
