a Race Track cake! Two round cakes set side-by-side can
look like a figure-8 track. You can cut circles out of
the center of each cake to make the tracks. Frost the
cakes with a light green frosting for the grass. Then
crush some dark chocolate cookies (Oreos). Make a track
around the top of the cakes with the crumbs. (if you didn't
cut out the center of the tracks, use a circle stencil
to keep the crumbs out of the middle, and then cover the
center with more green frosting or green sprinkles) Use
white tube gel icing for the street lines. You can put
candy cars or a small toy Lightning McQueen on the track
of the cake.
and white checkered flags for the driveway and around
the party! Lightning McQueen needs to know when to start
the race. You can use a black and white checkered table
cloth and cut it into appropriate sizes, or just print
some from your own printer. Tape the flags to small pencils
or dowling rods and line your driveway with them. Put
a larger flag on top of your mailbox. White butcher paper
with a black construction paper track is great for a tablecloth!
signs are great decorations! Disney Cars follow road rules,
and your guests can, too. They are useful for party games,
too. Use a stop sign for a game of red light/ green light.
You may be able to borrow a sign or two from your neighborhood
public works department... or just print off some signs
from your computer and post them around your party.
race track food - hot dogs with carrot circles on the
sides (attached with a toothpick) look like little race
cars. Make stop light treats with red and green Jello
circles. Make a pizza with the toppings around the edges
and it will look like a tire or serve individual bagel
pizzas. If you have older guests and no light carpeting
to ruin - serve dark punch and say it's motor oil.
- race - race! Set up an obstacle course and have your
guests run through it. Or, if you are daring, get some
office boxes or packing boxes and cut off the top and
bottom of the boxes. The kids have to stand in the box
and run as if they are a car. You can make carrying handles
or shoulder straps with ribbon or clothesline if that's
Tire events! Luigi loves to fix the cars and change tires
for Lightning McQueen. Bean bag toss - use the tire as
the target. Or have tire races - the kids have to roll
the tire around cones in a yard or driveway in the fastest
time they can. (Make sure your guests are wearing clothes
that can get dirty)
THROW AWAY THE PARTY DECORATIONS! - Save money and do
something your guests will LOVE! GIVE AWAY your party
decorations! Use Cars posters (see below for inexpensive
resources) to hang around your party area. Allow the winners
of different games to choose which poster they'll take
home after the party!
