My son is crazy about the Disney Cars characters. He has only watched the movie once all the way through, but loves Lightning McQueen and all the wonderful cars. We decided to throw him a Cars themed birthday party. We kept it simple and had fun. I got all of the Cars party decorations on clearance, because the new Cars 2 movie is coming out. We set up Radiator Springs on our dining room table and used small chocolate donuts as a tire tower.
We had the birthday party mid morning, because it is always so hot on his birthday. We went with a brunch theme and served fruit and had a donut (tire)cake instead of an actually birthday cake. We served coffee for the adults and juice for the kids.
We set up a race track on the driveway and had a Shake and Go Race. It was more of kids shaking cars and running around.
Then we did a running race with the kids and that was the only thing that worked out great. The kids loved it. All we did was hold a streamer and said, Go. The kids wanted to do it over and over again!
We gave them all medals! I wanted to give them a Silver Tailfin Trophy but went with the medals instead.
His favorite gift was Doc Hudson!
We knew it was a success from this one smile!
Next on the list.
See the Cars 2 movie with dad and maybe even at a drive in!!
