The Chocolate Museum also organises special programmes for children, which are perfect for a birthday party! Children will not only have an opportunity to try fun activities, but will also make some amazing sweets. Choose the theme you prefer and reserve a time!

CHOCOLATE BEAUTY WORKSHOP

Birthday programme

 

The participants in our beauty workshop will create miracles from cocoa butter! By pouring white chocolate that’s rich in cocoa butter into the moulds, they will make lip balm from the cocoa butter. Later, with the help of natural colours such as blackcurrant, tomatoes, beets, green tea and others, they will colour the white chocolate any hue they desire, to the lip balm into a soft pink or red. Or maybe yellow? How about green?

The workshop also features a cake: the participants will decorate it together, before they blow out the candles. May your sweet dreams come true!

 

The programme is recommended for children aged between 8 and 13 years.

The duration is approximately 1.5 hour.

INDIAN CHOCOLATE WORKSHOP

Birthday programme

 

The Central American Indians decorated themselves with colours from nature and were the first to taste chocolate, so the participants in this programme will become real Indians! Using natural colours, such as blackcurrant, tomatoes, beets, green tea and others, they will colour white chocolate to make coloured chocolate bars. We will also make a chocolate amulet and, of course, we’ll taste the results.

At the Indian chocolate workshop, the birthday boy will become the leader of a chocolate tribe. Guests will listen to his playful instructions, as we play games and finally blow out birthday candles. May your sweet dreams come true!

 

The programme is recommended for children aged between 8 and 13 years.

The duration is approximately 1.5 hour.

Our workshops cater to even the smallest chocolate lovers! A special programme awaits little ones, who will be invited to decorate sweet gingerbread and make chocolate lollipops!

 

The programme is recommended for children aged between 3 and 6 years. We invite groups of between 6 to 20 children to attend.

The duration of the event is approximately 40 minutes.
