Children’s Party Healthy Food & DIY Decor Ideas

I love hosting parties and finding creative ways to entertain. I also love incorporating healthy treats [in addition to the guilty pleasure] I now my guests will love. The items I’m featuring in this post does just that for little guests. These treats I served for Catalina’s birthday party are perfect for any kid birthday or special children’s occasions.

1. I made yummy animal sandwiches by using this CuteZCute Animal Friends Food Decor, Cutter & Stamp Kit.

Making these sandwiches is much simpler than it looks. I used the cutter to cut the shapes into whole wheat bread and the stamper to help create the faces.

I made three kinds of sandwiches – ham and provolone cheese, turkey and swiss cheese, and cheddar cheese sandwiches (for the kids who prefer to go meat-free).

I also used the cutter to cut the cheese slices for the animal sandwiches.

I really loved the way they came out…and I’m not even a child! I also coated the bread slices with thin layers of low-fat olive oil mayonnaise.

I used pink sandwich flags to label the different sandwiches. They were just as delicious as they were cute.

2. I made sweet fruit sticks using a seasonal fruit mix and barbecue skewers.

3. I did some DIY decorating to the beverages I served.

I used scalloped Avery labels to make stickers that said “Catalina’s 4th Birthday”.

I wrapped pink construction paper around organic, low-sugar juice boxes before placing the stickers on the faces of the box, I had to remove the straws to securing wrap the construction paper but simply used my small glue gun to reattach them.

I just love the way they turned out!

I even did the same to the box of paper straws!

These straws not only keep children from spilling water on themselves but they also add to the decor theme as well.

I pasted some pink washi tape on two mason jars that I sued to hold napkins and utensils.


The party was a great success and the kids all loved the treats. Of course I had to also include some chicken pastelitos for the adults but you get the picture.

How do you like to celebrate your little ones’ birthdays and milestones? Let me know in the comment section below.
