Kids, like Ponce de León, need constant supervision while exploring or they’ll simply vanish into a jungle in search of eternal youth. Mature their minds and mitts under watchful eyes with today's Groupon: for $350, you get a 90-minute children's basic birthday party package for up to 25 guests age 2–15 (up to a $798.50 value including tax and deposit) at Little Chefs, a children's culinary institute with locations in Port Washington and Syosset.
For more than 10 years, Little Chefs' trained teachers have helped ripen green ones' foodsmithing techniques with a cornucopia of cooking classes that drive blossoming mind matter with motor, math, and social skills within a supportive atmosphere. The basic birthday package beckons up to 25 pintsize partygoers with a colorful custom invitation card to be mailed via postal service or pony-riding pigeon courier. The festive ensemble of compact chefs can embrace one of four cooking themes and cast mini digits into the culinary roles of cookie shaper, cupcake froster, pretzel twirler, or brownie-pizza cutter. Guests of honor select their choice of meal, deciding whether jolie ravioli, heart-shaped pancakes, or pigs in a blanket best defines their 10th birthday or if a convertible-sports-car cake would better restore the not-yet-jaded spirits of their 6-year-old self.
