Hot Wheels Race Car Party Ideas

I am not crafty. But when my sons ask for a specific birthday party theme, I make all the decorations- and they always help me. This way they are involved in the preparation, and I can relax knowing it won’t be perfect, but we enjoy the process.

Here is a race car birthday party we had last year.

I used black table cloths and put a strip of white White Duck Brand Duct Tape down the center of it every 12 inches- to look like the stripes on the road.

For snacks I served nuts and bolts: (Mixed nuts and Organic Honey Nut O’s)
And spare tires- Organic sandwich cookies, regular and gluten-free
I covered mini water bottles with a strip of Checker Printed Duct Tape and the added the guests names using the Hot Wheels font.

My sons painted mini wine carafes gold to look like trophies, and we added red hots to clear ones to hold up signs.

Favors were super easy- everyone got a matchbox car!

And of course the playlist!

Rev It Up And Go
Fast Car
Little Red Corvette
Life is a Highway
Route 66
Speed Of Sound
Little Duece Coupe
Good Times Roll
Built For Speed (2000 Digital Remaster)


And if you REALLY get into the theme, you need these nails!
