It came and went way to fast. Yes, the last 3 years went by fast, but what is even more sad is all of the time and effort put into the cutest little Car Party I will ever throw was over in a FLASH! It has almost been a week, and I still have most of the decorations up because it was so much fun. Crew (my little guy) is now THREE!!!
Crew's Cars Party Itinerary:
Play with cars on the vinyl car track as kids arrive
Color cars pictures as kids arrive
Main activity: CAR RACING
I spray painted a simple race track on the lawn in the back yard,
kids decorated card board boxes like cars with stickers and crayons
Then we went outside and RACED!
Each of the kids received their own Piston Cup with their name on it!
Happy Birthday to Crew!
We sang to the birthday boy, ate cupcakes, carrots and grapes, and then opened presents!
You can't go wrong with a Pinata at any age really.
The kids all wanted a turn, and after one croquet stick was broken by my nine year old GIRL,
we had the adults help the kids out a little until the candy was spilled.
We gave out simple goody bags (brown paper bags with racing checks and a cars sticker)
Inside they had a Cars PEZ dispenser, Disney Cars stickers, a Car pencil, and a bouncy ball.
Don't forget, they all got to take home a bag of candy from the pinata and a Piston Cup from the Races.
The parents loved that I gave out so much candy. :)

And a little shrine dedicated to Crew, the birthday boy.

The RACE TRACK and the RACES
Even the teenagers wanted to race...
Favorite Gift: EVERYTHING! And he wears his Cars sunglasses every day.
This was later that afternoon, after a wardrobe change due to frosting mishaps.
I think he had a good time!
