Boogity, Boogity, Boogity, Let’s Go Racing Boys!
My son’s 5th birthday party was awesome! At the time he was a HUGE Nascar fan and really wanted a Nascar themed party. I love throwing birthday parties, especially themed ones, so when he said he wanted a Nascar party, I immediately started picturing kids racing around a race track. How stinking fun is that for 5 year olds?
After talking with my dad about how I wanted a race track with race cars for the party, he came up with the design for these amazing Nascars made from cardboard boxes! My dad, mom and I cut the designs out of cardboard, painted them, assembled them and printed all the decals and logos on label paper from our printer. The tires are made from small black paper plates with CDs on them for the rims. The best part of the tires is that they have Velcro on them so the kids can get new tires at the Pit Stops! How totally cool is that?

This was a special, smaller car made for younger kids at the party. The name Manas on the side of the car is what my son calls my mom. What language is that? It isn’t one!!! My son made it up when he started talking and it has stuck. We think it’s cute.
Gentlemen(boys), Start Your Engines!
Zooming around the track they go! Left turns only!
Pit Stop time – getting tires changed by their pit crew of one! Time is of the essence!
Yes, that is me in the number #14 car! I totally could have beat those kids (notice I am last), but I didn’t think that would be too cool of me, so I ran slow! :) No, seriously, I would have won!
After the racing all the kids were given trophies and medals for doing such a great job. Then it was cake time! The Nascar candle in the top left of the cupcake cake played the Nascar theme music.
Everyone had a great time, even the parents raced around the track! And I am happy to report, there were no crashes! Each kid took home a checkered flag gift bag filled with Nascar goodies!
And of course…you can’t get into a Nascar race without a ticket!
The birthday boy with his grandparents(the Nascar engineers)! Please pay no attention to the my dead lawn behind them, it has been fixed and now looks great!
You want to know what it so great about those Nascars? You know you do! We have gotten SO much use out of them: a Halloween costume, a Halloween party, a what you want to be when you grow up school spirit day, playing with them at home and wearing it to an actual Nascar race!
All in all it was a very memorable 5th birthday party for my awesome son!
