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.

Dear dish it, my friend first met eachother on the first day of kindergarten we sat next to one another and we became close. we were BFF's throughout 1st to 2nd grades. then, the second grade teacher realized there were alot of kids in the class. and same w the 3rd grade teacher. so, we had to have a split class. my friend was in the split. I was not. It all seemed like the teachers were doing somthing... weired. all the girls (well, almost there were only 6 girls on one half) were in the split. and all the boys were in regular . AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS WEIRED! :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( all the boy BFF's and the girl BFF's were SPLIT. me and my friend,kids named Nia & Georgia, Isaac& Ethan, and more. it was so sad for all of us.2 months later, I got homschooled. 2 years later im back in public with my 4th grade self. everything had changed. a bunch of people were obsessed w\ a girl my age named kassidy. im neighbors w\ kassidy and she is REALLY cool and nice. but the whole I  [s:sm3/1jw1] kassidy crew got mean. if I asked them to play they would say. "If Kassidy is playing I will" or I would want to be parteners with kassidy on something and they would freak out. anyway jasmine NEVER invited my to anything, and I am trying to be nice to her ( ice cream money, homework help, comfort when sad, ect.) And not to mention I invited her to 3 things!!! on the bright side she came to 2 :thumbsup :thumbsup she also embarassed me by saying that she was moving I freaked out  because I cared about her and I would cry all the time. I even held onto her and said sadly, "PLEASE DON'T GO!!  :sad :sad . later i found out that she was not moving, she was going to CA for a vacation. even the teacher was in on it!! :mad :mad anyways, my parents told me that i should just let go of her. But i am not ready. HELP??? :e :e :e :e :e

When I was a child I wanted glasses SOO bad, cuz I wanted to copy my mom and sister. And also, I thought they looked cool. I wear glasses now. I have had them for 2 years and honestly I don't mind them. Although, this year I am gonna pry get contacts for swimming better and stuff like that. But if you don't need glasses I wouldn't recommend wearing them. They're not bad, but trust me after a while you will pry not like them as much. But hey, that's my opinion. If you want to do it I'm not gonna stop you. Do what makes you happy in the long run. And tell your friends that they are non prescription if you don't need them, but still get some.

I agree I was afraid of that first too. Eventually I just began inviting my friends over and they don't use it/practically obsess over it like I do but they understood why I use kidzworld and not many other forms of social media.

They would put me in trouble for falling in love. They believe I can't date until age 20. Aw, well, my advice for you would be to talk to your parents about it. There's no point trying to sneak around like those films and it is better for your mind if you talk to them about it. It can be super difficult I know but if you and your parents get along really well then you guys can talk about it and make it work. On the other hand, if your parents ban you from falling in love as you put it, then I think it's better just to stay as friends with him.
