Vroom vroom! Little boys love race cars. With so many Fast and Furious movies out there, and just the natural tendency of boys to love all things fast and fabulous, they’ll probably be driving well before the legal age! Get them prepped with a cool race car themed birthday party, complete with pit passes and a refueling station. Here’s How To Throw A Race Car Themed Party for your F1 driver:
1) Pick A Car!
There are so many different kinds of racing cars, it can be hard to choose. Speaking of F1, your boy can opt for his favorite teams color and car, or go for something spruced like the cars in Fast and Furious. Vintage screams American muscle like the Mustang GT500. An adorable option is to tie it in with the party theme, like Fast Five (if he’s five – four works too), or ‘Little Mustang Man turns Speedy Six. You get the idea.
