Trevor's 5th Race Car/Hotwheel Birthday Party

The big 5!  This was the birthday party that Trevor was really looking forward to.  He wanted his party at home and he wanted a hot wheel party.  I did try to pursuade him to have it at a park, so he can invite more friends and I would not have to worry about cleaning the house.  :)  He was very determined for a  house party, so that is what he got.  I do have to admit that I did have a lot of fun planninng this party.  Check out our fun day...

Invitation - Husband is so great and made this for me

 Party Details - Our theme was Race Car/Hot Wheels

When each friend arrived, they received a wooden car to color.  After all Trevor's friends arrived, we gathered the kids for a Race Car Derby using their wooden car they colored.  At the end of a race, all the kids received hot wheel medals.  (Trevor was very excited to pick these.)  Another game we played was relay races.  I painted 2 boxes and made them look like race cars with wheel and race car numbers on the side.  The kids got into 2 teams to race each other.  They wore race googles and helmets.  And then they were off.  Both teams raced and at the end they really didn't seem to care about winning.  They just had fun racing in the carboard racecars.  The last activity before cake was the Hot Wheel pinata.

  1. Totally cute!! I especially love the race car derby. Would you care to share how you made it or a supply list? :)

  2. Do you have a tutorial for the Race Car Derby - or can you point me to one online that you used? We aren't very crafty around here but would love to make one for my son's birthday this weekend!
