The 5th Annual APS King Cake Party - Part II (kids 6-12) @ APS Zoom Room

For obvious reasons, our winter cultural celebrations will look a little different this year. To get things started, our first one – the 5th Annual King Cake Party – will be split into three separate virtual events based on age groups. At least we’ll still be able to celebrate together! All events will be held in French, but no prior knowledge of French is required. 

The king cake is an important part of the traditional French Epiphanie celebration, so all the events will be focused on these distinctive French pastries. All participants will get their own mini-king cake, giving everyone a chance for a year’s worth of good luck if you find a charm inside! Each event is limited to 10 families to ensure plenty of one-on-one time. 

The King Cake party will be the first monthly event of the 2021 Aux Petits Soins Activities Calendar. Please save the dates for the following ones — the Chandeleur Party on Sunday, Feb. 7, and the Carnaval Celebration on Sunday, Feb. 14.

Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021 @ 3-4 p.m. – Part I (for kids 0-6)

We will make crowns, read books and (of course) eat king cakes at this fun-filled virtual event. All activities have been geared to keep APS’s youngest students engaged for a full hour. 

Cost is $20 for a “King Cake Fun Kit” that includes admission to the party, one set of crown-building supplies and two king cakes, and $8 for each additional king cake. The king cakes and craft kits can be picked up the day of the event between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased online up until noon on Saturday, Jan. 2. For more information, please email info@apsfrenchclass.com.

At this fun, educational event, we will learn how to make king cakes in the authentic French style. All instructions will be tailored for specific ages/ability levels, guaranteeing an enriching experience … with a sweet ending! 

Cost is $30 for a “King Cake Building Kit” that includes admission to the party, pre-measured ingredients good for making up to four king cakes, or $10 to just join the event if you plan to assemble your own ingredients. The kits can be picked up the day of the event between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
