Planning a Cars party can be fun and easy once you know what you want to do. Here are some Cars party ideas from my son's 3rd birthday party.
After all of the hard work and anticipation, my son's Cars-themed third birthday party was (mostly) a success. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't perfect. These things never are, of course. Overall it was fun, though, and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves; almost everybody, at least... The star of the party wasn't feeling very well, and retreated inside to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes throughout a large portion of the party. Sigh.
You think that you are planning all of this for the birthday boy, and then the big day arrives, and the birthday boy shows no interest in his party. Then you start to wonder, "Have I been planning all of this, then, for me?!?!?!"
Luckily, the other kids seemed impressed and really enjoyed themselves.
Despite all of the work that goes into these sorts of parties, I love planning them. In fact, I often get told that I should do it as a career :) ; but as much as I love doing it, I think it would drive me crazy if I were to do it full time.
So, where do I begin?
Here are some of the Cars party ideas I used...
Apart from the larger signs, you can also see that I made some smaller signs that were showcased in IKEA Tolsby frames. That was my way of matching up the corresponding cars to their shops, but also a way for me to try to translate some of the ideas into Spanish for my guests. I downloaded the free Cars clipart from here. They claim that they are public domain images, but either way I don’t think you should have a problem using them at your own personal party.
You can see that I also quickly made some orange cones out of craft foam. I was going to buy some that he could later play with outside when learning to ride a bike, but they were a bit too expensive, so… 😉
