Ben & Holly’s Elf & Fairy Party Menu

From the makers of Peppa Pig, the BAFTA-award-winning Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom is an animated TV show for pre-schoolers, airing daily on Nick Junior and Channel Five’s Milkshake. In the very small kingdom of Ben Elf and Fairy Princess Holly, magic always leads to mayhem!

The official tie-in Ben & Holly books are published by Ladybird and are bursting with magic, adventure and play. In Elf & Fairy Party, a sticker activity book jam-packed with games, puzzles and stickers galore, Ben and Holly are invited to an Elf and Fairy-themed birthday party with delicious party food to enjoy, including birthday cake with pretty pink icing, sandwiches, lemonade and of course, lots of jelly!

Why not recreate a magical Elf and Fairy Party at home with our selection of party-food recipes for your little ones to enjoy? To celebrate, we’re also giving away a bundle of Ben & Holly books, DVD’s, playing cards and magazine to one lucky winner.
