We were recently chosen to host a #DisneySide @Home Celebration, and my boys were SO excited! We received a big box full of Cars themed party supplies and goodies, so we invited a few friends and cousins over for a Cars playdate party. We’re always eager to host a party, even if the only excuse to party is simply showing off our #DisneySide!
Our local party store had Cars party favors on sale for $1 each, so I picked up a few extra things to keep the kids busy during our playdate – stickers, foam gliders, mini pinball games, coloring books, crayons, bubbles and punching balloons.
The boys wanted to build a “Luigi’s Casa Della Tires,” so we used mini chocolate donuts to create a “tire” tower. I simply hot glued a bamboo skewer to a paper plate, and then threaded the donuts on to the skewer. Easy peasy!
We dubbed these cute containers of snack mix “Chex-ered Flag Mix,” and they were a huge hit!
I used my favorite sandwich press to make PBJ “Wheels” for lunch. I made the sandwiches the night before our party and stored them in these cute Cars sandwich bags until we were ready for lunch.
We had “Stoplight Brownies” for dessert, and the kids gobbled them up!
Our party box came with this adorable “Pin the Smile on Mickey” game, and the kids loved it. Simon, my four-year-old, won the game, and he received a Cars digital watch (also from our goodie box!) as his prize. He was SO excited!
We had an awesome day hanging out in the sunshine and playing with all of the Cars toys and games. The kiddos loved showing their “DisneySide, and they all played so hard that they went to bed really early that night!
