Ben is a huge fan of Chuck E Cheese. We have one not too far from us so we go whenever I find a really good coupon or for a special treat. When we can't make it out, we have the next best thing at home: The Chuck E. Cheese Pizza Maker!
I was recently sent one to try out. As soon as I opened the box and Ben saw what was inside, that was it. He wanted to open it and have pizza for dinner.
The box contains everything you need to make your own kid sized pizzas: Mixes to make the dough and sauce, cheese, spoon, spatula, kid-safe pizza cutter, a bowl to mix it in, and a pizza tray to make it all on. We had a blast making these:
Here's Ben mixing the dough. "I wanna do it all by myself!" Ok, ok, Mommy will just take the pictures. The directions are very easy to follow and all that's required to make the dough is a little bit of water.
Press the dough onto the tray to make 2 small kid-sized pizzas. (What a cheese-ball! That's the smile he reserves for when the camera is out.)
To make the sauce you add a little bit of ketchup to a powdered mix which is included in the kit.
Spread the sauce, sprinkle on the cheese and pop them in the microwave for a couple of minutes and this is your finished product!
Ben loved this. He had so much fun making them and was really excited to eat it for dinner. I had fun helping him and this was a project that was easy for him to do with only a little help from mom. Older kids could definitely tackle this by themselves. There is no stove or oven to worry about and no sharp utensils needed.
The Chuck E. Cheese Pizza Maker is available at Toys R Us stores all over. This would make a fantastic Christmas gift for the Chuck E. Cheese fan or pizza loving kid on your shopping list. It's not too expensive at $16.99.
