GOOD LOOKS - Race Car Party Games

more race themed games

Here are a few more games I spotted on Pinterest...


TYRE TOSS
Set up a series of “tyres”: use real ones if you have or hula hoops - at different distances and assign each a point value. Line the little racers up and give each a set number of plastic balls/bean bags. The goal to the game is to get as many points as possible by tossing the balls into the tyres.

HOW MANY WHEELS?
Fill a glass jar with either real toy car wheels or liquorice circles that look like wheels, and have the little racers guess how many are in the jar.

SALVAGE GAME
Hide different parts of toy cars in and around the garden or buried in a sand pit and have kids hunt or dig for the pieces. One could even split the racers in two teams and set the challenge of them having to rebuild the car!

BODY ART SHOP
Have a outline drawing of a car either on standard size paper or print one huge car, and let kids decorate the car with their own art work or stickers from the printable party.

GOOD LIFE - Blue Delft Party

out of the blue

Karen from Lovilee just shared with us the most gorgeous Dazzling Blue photo shoot with us featuring the much loved Blue Party Porcelain Collection we have in stock - what a great way to start the week!

THINGS WE LOVE:
- The folded doily garland - so easy and inexpensive to make but so effective.


- The gorgeous wooden and fabric chairs - and setting the table with no linen - so that the wood is a showpiece on it's own.


- The all-white butter cream cake only decorated with blueberries on top.


- The place settings - who knew paper plates could looks so lovely. A great idea for a kitchen tea or gathering where there are lots of guests!

 

- The lace table runner! I've never seen this before and am so going to do this idea at my next tea party!
 

- Crumpets! Stacked and then held together with a food flag!

GOOD LOOKS - Race Car Party Games - Matchbox Race

start your engines

An alternative to having the kids race around as cars, is to give each child a little toy car as their party favour, and then you can have a mini race around a lifted track.


Step 1: Each child is given a toy car. If there are lots of kids, you may need to number each car with a round sticker label and their own unique number.
Step 2: Using a large cardboard box, cut out a "track" that measures 30cm wide and then as long as possible. 
Step 3: From our printable party, print out the race track field (as many sheets as you need to cover the length of your piece of cardboard). Stick the pages to the cardboard in one long continuous line.


Step 4: From our printable party, print out the START and FINISH posters and stick these at either end of the cardboard.
Step 5: Using old boxes/bricks/books lift the START end of your track up so that when the toy cars are placed at the START and are pushed they will move down the track - and then watch to see which car gets to the FINISH first.

Our Washi Tape Pinterest Board is growing daily with ideas, and here is a real life idea for "pinning" flowers to a board/wall using washi tape: the perfect wedding ceremony backdrop or party photo booth.

GOOD LOOKS - Race Car Party Games: Race Time

car race 

Every car party must have an obstacle race. The Printable Party has this as an easy activity to do as it includes the printable signs to “name” each area:WELCOME RACE FANS, START, FINISH and PIT STOP. Have the kids drive from different points, weaving through traffic cones, have a pit stop break where they drink water/eat a snack, and also include doing an activity driving “backwards” like Mator from the Cars movie.

GOODIES - Flower Power

Here's a cheerful way to keep the lid of the pot open so steam can vent. Just place Flower Power on the edge of the pot and rest the lid on it. Flower petals will spin occasionally when heat is on.
