Race Car Themed Birthday Party Ideas
Have races outside on a track made out of landscaping edging or traffic cones (use bikes, walkers, push toys, tricycles, etc). Use a kids play traffic light to start and finish every event. Prizes can be plastic trophy cups filled with hershey’s kisses and gold-foil wrapped chocolate medals for all the racers!
For a fun activity, do wheel paintings with matchbox race cars using a bucket of cars, paint and paper. Dip a variety of cars in washable, non-toxic kids paint and drive them across the paper. The different treads and tire sizes in different colors makes for interesting results and a fun take-home piece! If you have older guests, they can paint and assemble model wooden cars (found at your local craft store).
For party favors, use lucite race cars filled with M&Ms, a matchbox race car, and a race car baseball cap all in a checkered flag bucket with a shovel wrapped in cellophane & tied with ribbon in the party colors.
