Each child will have fun and learn some kitchen basics as he or she makes a meal (a main dish, side dish and smoothie) and decorates a cupcake. Parties are appropriate for 4 to 12 year olds and are two hours long - the first hour the children cook and the second hour is for eating and opening gifts. Eckert's provides post-card invitations. Parties can accommodate up to 25 children. Food and soft drinks may be ordered for adults. Reservations must be made at least 10 days prior to the party. For more information or to make reservations please contact Adina at adina.angel@eckerts.com or by calling (618) 233-0513 x 2763.
