My two year old son loves anything on the move so Planes, Trains &
Automobiles was the perfect theme. We are also decorating his bedroom in this theme so I knew the decorations would be put to good use beyond just the party!
My mom made an awesome Planes, Trains and Automobiles cake which was the feature of the dessert table along with the Up in the Clouds Jello, Teddy Graham Cars and Traffic Light brownies.
I wanted favors to go with all three, planes, trains and automobiles so each kid received an "in flight snack" of pretzels, a train whistle and a wooden car and markers. I made traffic light favor bags to put all their treats in.
Activities / Games
Most of the activities were outside so we spray painted a race track on the lawn for the kiddie cars, played traffic light bean bags and had a foam airplane toss. We also had a wooden car cut out that we used as our "photo booth" for all of the guest. I included a copy of their photo in their thank you note and made a collage of all of them for my sons room.
What People Ate
Lots of fun themed food for this one. "Submarine" sandwiches, "Wheelie" good pasta, Veggie Train and of course hamburgers and hotdogs with stop light condiments!
What People Drank
We used camping water dispensers to look like gas cans (the idea of using an actual gas can seemed confusing for kids). And the construction cone cups were a hit!
