Party Idea Pros has an “old fashion” approach to kids’ parties. We say keep them small, keep them short, and keep them simple. We love hula hoops, beach balls, crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and musical instruments. Generally, the number of guest should equal the age of the birthday child, but don’t obsess if you are a few over or under — it is not worth the hurt feelings for an extra child or even two. Never, ever deliver invitations at school unless every single child is invited!!!!! Save money – skip the jumpies and the pony rides.
Many of the products here also work for Cars 2 theme baby showers!
For a fun-filled kids Cars 2 party there are only a few essentials:
A Great Cars 2 Party Invitation
Even before the party begins invitations create a sense of anticipation. Think of all the time your own child spends looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.
Other Race Car Theme Invitations
Colorful Cars 2 Theme Paper Goods
Money Saving Idea Skip the newly released Cars 2 merchandise and instead use last year’s model – now on sale while supplies last. Depending on the age of your child, he or she may not even notice the difference. (Just checked and it looks as if most of last season’s Disney Cars merchandise is sold out but is still available at Birthday Express.) Another option are these cute Black and White Check Birthday Party Packs
Although not officially, Cars 2, boys love these exclusive construction cone cups — they work especially well if you integrate a a construction cone obstacle course into your party activities and use construction cone candles on your birthday cake.
Celebratory Cars 2 Balloons
A cluster or two of latex balloons mixed with some fabulous Mylar car shaped balloons (be especially careful of latex balloons if you have very young children present)
Festive Cars 2 Party Table Centerpieces
Surround a toy racetrack with a few Disney Cars characters to create a colorful centerpiece or simply use the centerpieces provided in the Cars 2 party kits – you can always make them a little less commercial by adding balloons and some of your own car racing accessories.

Yummy Cars 2 Party Food
Keep the food simple: serve grapes ((be sure to cut them if you have very young children) or chips or trail mix in a cars bowl, use race car shaped cookie cutters to cut cheese, tea style sandwiches, and fruit cut and then serve on a Disney Cars Shaped Glitter Plate or even use a cars cake pan as a serving tray, drink Sally’s Shakes, and for dessert set up a Lightning McQueen Ice Cream Bar and /or serve the classic decorated birthday cake/ cupcakes. Also, in keeping with Cars 2 international theme, consider creating a very international spread by choosing food associated with many different countries such as cheese quesadillas, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken satay, and potstickers.

Disney Cars Cake Idea
Make a cake that looks like a race track filled with your child’s favorite Disney Cars characters!
Fun Cars 2 Party Activities
All you need are four party activities: a “doing” activity such as an inflatable tire obstacle course, a craft activity such Disney’s Cars 2 – Color Your Own Door Hangers, or make easy no sew fleece race car theme blankets for local children or seniors in need, and a game activity like, Red Light, Green Light, and to end the party, a chance to break the pinata. As the kids get older, the same activities work just make them more complex, and add a competitive/team component. More Disney Cars 2 Party Games and Activities
Cars 2 Fun and Games
Keep in mind – games and toys can also double as party favors!
- A simple jump rope contest is a fun and energy burning activity for the beginning of the party!
- (Play a trivia or other question and answer style game with these dry erase boards eliminating contestants as they write down the wrong answer. The last one standing wins an extra Cars 2 gift – everyone gets to go home with their dry erase board.)
- Have a closing party parade as the kids march over to either enjoy birthday cake or break the pinata.
These realistic looking inflatable tires can be set up as an obstacle course or as a football practice drill depending on the age and skill level of your guests.
