Boys Cars Party – sneaky preview

| February 3, 2012 | 13 Comments

Oooh, I am so excited, Red Ted’s Cars Party is starting to come together! We have made some Cars Cookie Cutter Candles. The local garage is giving me some old tyres for a party game.. and I have just figured out our “crazy balloon car race” – which car will be the first to cross the line?:

I am sure you can come up with a cleverer way to make this party game… but we will take 4 lego cars. 4 balloons. 4 crayons (aka balloon stoppers). 4 bricks and some masking tape.

Blow the balloons up. Use the crayons as stoppers. Secure on lego…

When you are ready, carefully pull the stoppers out. They have two functions – one as the stopper and two, to make sure that the tape, does not squish the balloon too much and let’s the air get out!

What do you reckon? Is this cars party fun?!?!?

    Haha! Looks great, I might have to pinch that idea for my 3 year olds party this month! I can imagine the adults having fun with this too!

    How cool is that!? Brilliant!

    Ah cool. How about pin the *insert car part* on the car or is that a bit lame. Pass the parcel with a car racing sound instead of music, could have a tyre race in garden but thats a bit similar to what you\’ve done. Maybe a lucky dip in the tyres? Sorry am in bed sick so nothing better to do!

      Oh no no, keep the ideas coming!!! We may do a car tyre race indoors – depends on whether the inflatable tyres turn up or not in time!!!! And lucky dip is a great idea.

      Hope you feel better soon!!!
