Race Car Party -4yr- Ice Cream Sundae Buffet
Debbie in Cave Creek, Arizona, USA
For my son Brandon's fourth birthday we had a race car theme.
For invitations I bought white cardstock which I cut in half and then cut out a winding road out of black construction paper and glued it on. I used a paint pen to do the white dotted line of the road. Then I hot glued a hot wheels car on the "road".
The invitation had a poem that I made up; Vroommmm, Race on over and don't be late, Brandon is turning four, we have to celebrate!
For decorations we made a balloon arch out of black and white balloons and had checkered flags everywhere. We rented a inflatable jump that had a race car on top, just to give the kids something to do when we were not doing an activity.
For activities, I made several "stations" that the kids could do or make something.
Station #1, the DMV, I bought and Izone camera that is instamatic. The film that comes out is quarter size. I took each childs photos and put it on licenses that I had pre-made with there d.o.b, name, ect. Then I used those photo lamination kits and made license for the kids.
Station #2, was build your own race car from candy. Use a pack of bubble gum for the body, round red/white christmas candies for the four wheels, and miniture hersheys candy bars for the spoiler. The kids loved these.
Station #3 was make your own stoplight goody bad. Made out of lunch bags and red, green, and yellow construction paper circles I had cut out before hand. We used these for the goodies that fell out of the race car pinata. I also set up race car tracks (hotwheels) around the yard.
Since this party was in the latter part of the afternoon, instead of serving lunch I set up an icecream sundae buffet with every imaginable topping and the kids had to "race on over" and make their sundae.
For the birthday cake I ordered a 4-d racecar cake kit from racecakes.com.
The kids received racing helmets, and hotwheel cars and candy for goody bags. It was a great day for all, and I got a lot of compliments!!!!
