Pizza Express with Ice Age: Collision Course

The wonderful Pizza Express have a special collaboration that’s just started for Summer 2016. They’ve teamed up with Fox Films and the Ice Age:Collision Course movie to bring some fun activity sheets to the piccolo (childrens) menu, which are available in most of their restaurants. They’re also (and this is the most exciting part) giving you the chance to win an amazing holiday to Hollywood USA, with a VIP tour of Fox Studios too! I would SO like to win that!

As we’d been invited to check out the new activity sheets in the Leicester Square branch of Pizza Express, we were also treated to special previews of the Ice Age movie too beforehand! So lucky!

We arrived in London bright and early for the film and the kids got to say hello to some of the famous characters….

The film was brilliant! We loved it. The hilarious Scrat is up to his usual daft antics, but in Outer Space this time! He wreaks havoc as he’s trying to catch his beloved acorn! He accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that are set to transform and endanger the Ice Age World. Manny, Sid, Diego and the gang must embark on a mission to save themselves! Full of comedy capers as you would imagine.. we thoroughly recommend going to see it with the family!

After that we were feeling nice and hungry and ready for our Pizza Express lunch. I’ve written an in- depth review of our dining experience and food that we had a few weeks ago at Pizza Express, so I won’t go too much into the menu because this time we were there for a Pizza Express Party! How exciting!

Firstly though, the kids got down to some serious colouring in and activities with the Ice Age Sheets! Could’ve spent hours doing these!

Pizza Express have been hosting kids parties for many years. Mine haven’t been to any themselves but I’ve heard they are lots of fun. The kids get to make their very own pizza!

Hands washed then hats and aprons donned!

We had a Pizza Express Chef on hand to make the dough, even though we all geared up to making our own! I guess that would’ve been incredibly messy and time consuming, with most kids not being able to manage to making dough anyway… which is an art from in itself isn’t it?

The kids squished the dough into the pan and began to add the toppings… the exciting part. The Pizza Express Chef/Party Host talked them through it and had lots of interesting trivia to tell them about the pizza making process!

A typical kids’ party will last between 90 and 120 minutes, depending how many kids there are, and their age. Expect a lively combination of pizza making fun with games to keep everyone happy. And there’ll be plenty of time to enjoy your creations before you tuck into a round of gelato.

Pizza Express even do parties for adults! These include a glass of Prosecco on arrival… sounds good to me… when can I book? 😉

My children were were so excited to eat their very own pizza, which only takes FOUR minutes to cook in the super hot ovens, which meant they didn’t have to wait long!

And the verdict? Yummy!

We had a fantastic time watching Ice Age Collision Course and stuffing our faces at Pizza Express! You really must make sure you pay a visit to your local Pizza Express over the holidays so the kiddies can have fun with the Ice Age activity sheets… get them to draw a super duper picture of their favourite character with a pizza for your chance to win that fantastic holiday to Hollywood!


We were given complimentary tickets to see the Ice Age movie and to check out the collaboration with Pizza Express! All words and opinions in this post are my own and honest.


  1. That looks like so much fun Carolynne, I’ve loved reading these and your kiddos look like they’re having blast! 🙂 x
