and two large clear plastic jugs with the measurements on the side
see who can get as much water in their jug in a set time.

Put the lights on Stickers Mcqueen

enlarge and print a picture of Lightning Mcqueen

and make lots of pairs of headlights with blue tack on the back

write each of the children’s names on a pair to see who gets the closest.

A Piston Cup Box Car Racewith pre made Disney Cars or make them as an activity at the party.

this does take alot of prep time, cutting out patterns etc, but well worth it.

make a flip lap counter

have a crew chief with head set

have a pit stop tyre challenge game after three laps

mdf board, a Mcqueen wall sticker with mdf whit wall tyres and nuts and bolts

and a Filmore’s 60’s organic re fuel stop before they do another lap

then do the last lap backwards as the worlds bestest backwards driver
