How to Plan a BBQ Cook-Off

No one would want to wear an apron to a party, except to this one! Find out how to have fun flipping hamburger patties with Kidzworld's party planning tips!

What's Cooking?

What do you do at a BBQ? Chow down, of course! But let's make it interesting - have an Iron Chef-style competition to see who can make the best burgers or hot dogs! You and your friends can pile on jalapenos and red hot chili peppers for a spicy kick, or keep it All-American by sticking with ketchup and mustard - and apple pie? The world is your oyster... hey, that's another ingredient you can use! As well as working the barbeque grill, your 'rents can be the judges and hand out prizes for the tastiest dish, best presentation and most creative.

It's More Fun When There's a Theme

If you want to take your party one step further, create a [kwlink]theme[/kwlink]. A couple of ideas are a Hawaiian Luau, where you dress up in grass skirts and leis and learn to do the hula, or a Life's a Beach theme, where everyone wears their bathing suits and grooves to classics like Surfin' USA by The Beach Boys and Wipeout by The Surfaris! If you don't know these songs, just ask the 'rents to dig their old records out of the dusty closet.

Time to Get Out of the Kitchen

After a day packed with friendly competition and good eats, your pals won't be able to keep their eyes open for too long - so invite them to spend the night! When you get up the next morning, you can have a breakfast cook-off for the yummiest pancakes or the most creative way to make eggs - or just eat leftovers from yesterday's BBQ.

I say stuff like, "Who with the what now!", "What the what!", "What the freak!" The last one might not be such a good one but hey it's not exactly cursing.

So here is the basic idea on what has been going on in my life. 1. My grandfather from my dad's side recently died but I don't Know how to feel about it. We weren't very close and I saw him once a year so how do I exactly feel about this? 2. One of my teachers didn't come today so there was a substitute. She was very strict. A boy in my class somehow ended up outside and was hiding. I saw him so I told the substitute. When I told my grandfather from my mother's side, he said I should stay out of others' buisness and that I did the wrong thing. So did I do the right thing or not?
