4 Great Child/Parent Dinner Party Ideas



Interaction between parents and children during dinner is part of a healthy family atmosphere. Sometimes it can be difficult to cater to both adults and children, but with the right attitude and considerations in place, dinner can be a fun family affair for both the old and the young. Here are four great dinner party ideas that engage adults and children alike.

#1: A Rainbow of Food

Work on your color skills and hand-eye coordination with this wide assortment of fruit. Adults will appreciate the healthy values of the meal, while children will go nuts about the fun colors and finger food. Create a rainbow of fruit by arranging lines of the following fruits on a tray:

  • Cherries
  • Orange wedges
  • Banana slices
  • Kiwi slices
  • Blueberries
  • Grapes

Include a tasty dip or have breakfast for dinner and allow children to top pancakes or waffles with their favorite fruits.

#2: Pizza Party

Children and adults alike will enjoy creating their own easy mini pizzas. You’ll need:

  • Bagels or English muffins
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Toppings of choice

Gather kids around the table and help them make their own meal. Spread a bagel or English muffin half with sauce, top with your favorite toppings, sprinkle with cheese, and cook in a toaster oven until the cheese is melted. Easy, quick and so much fun!

#3: Leftover Party

Often kids complain about leftovers, but here’s a fun way to turn leftovers into something new. Gather the kids and have a cook-off using leftover food and any sauces or dressing they desire. See who can come up with the best remake of a meal!


Dinner parties don’t have to be expensive, especially when catering to kids. Look for ideas that are particularly eye-catching and you’re sure to have a winner!
