Car Racing Party

22nd August 2009
For Leroy’s 4th Birthday we themed it as a Car party. Leroy’s lovely godparents organised a racing car to come to our place on the day so the kids could have photos and a play in it. Leroy was so excited to see his name on the Licence Plates.

We brought some chequered material and made flags to go up the driveway. We managed to get some free tyres and brought some small road cones to set up our race track.

Inside we had Black and White balloons and Car racing banners.

Grandad Gordon made Leroy a Go Cart with his Name on in. This was such a hit with all the kids.


The Invitation I made for Leroy had a picture of Roary the racing Car on it. We also made Pit Passes for all the guests to wear. The kids were in Team 1 and the Adults in Team 2. These were worn around everyone's necks once they entered into the race track (our front yard)

Games & Prizes
Pass the parcel – last layer was checked.
Prize was a very cool set of smashed up car book ends

Bean Bag Throw into Tyres. I made the bean bags out of chequered material filled with rice.
Prizes: Panorama Pressers (Cars Movie) & Formula 1 Racing Cars Tyre Races
Pin the Wheel on the Car. For this game we had a car racing poster and I made wheels for each child to stick on the car. This was played on the back of the Racing Car
