Seems like every little momstown boy is a fan of cars!! Anything four-wheeled for that matter. For the racecar lover in your family – throw a Racecar or Lightning McQueen themed birthday party!
To convince busy kids (who would rather be zooming) to come to the craft table, you need a fast craft with immediate results! Obviously, car themed! Buy wooden car shapes from the craft store (inexpens and have your guests decorate and paint them! Alternatively, you could trace a car shape (in permanent marker) onto cardstock or craft canvas and paint that in.
These make a nice take-home as part of the loot too!
Have kids use 'retired' racecars to make tire tread paintings. It's fun to see what types of tracks different tires make.
Pretty easy for young car-lovers! Pull out the tracks and roadways and let them play vroom vroom all they like!
If you're feeling adventurous you can set up a ramp on a staircase and have the cars race! Use leftover cardboard (kids can decorate it first) or a wooden plank.
You can used Cars-licensed products or create some of your own! Make this table runner using mural paper painted black, with yellow stripes glued on.
Repurpose an old trophy to design the racecar trophy or Piston Cup!
