For my son's 3rd birthday party, we had a terrible time coming up with a theme. He was obsessed with the movie Cars, monster trucks and construction vehicles. So we came up with "Things that Go" as an all encompassing theme.
To decorate we used vehicles from our toy bins and lots of balloons and streamers.
Lunch consisted of pinwheel sandwiches, fruit and veggies, and macaroni and cheese made with wheel pasta. We also had stoplight cookies and cars and trucks made from jello.
Lightening McQueen and Monster Truck cakes:During the party, I had tons of ride-ons for the kids to play on, a ramp set up for them to race cars, and Cars playing on the tv for anyone who needed a break. We also had a bubble machine set up-which was a huge hit with the little ones.For favors, each attendee received a few toy cars, car and monster truck fruit snacks, Cars stickers, and a tee (in blue/red or pink/purple). I was amazed at how excited the kids were about the shirts. Almost all of them had asked to wear them home.
