If your child’s birthday is coming up, chances are you have a pretty good idea of what you’re going to do for them this year. If they love cars, then the choice is obvious – make your child’s birthday one to remember with a car theme!

An interest in cars is not confined by gender or age – anybody can love cars, and children no matter what their age love shiny red (or pink!) sports cars.

If you’re going to be hosting a car inspired party for your loved one, here’s some ideas to get you started.

1. Presents

It goes without saying that you don’t need to spend a fortune on presents – children will remember their day experience more than their gift-wrapped presents. Still, for a car-themed party, you should buy car wrapping paper for all of the presents from yourself and talk to other parents to see if they’ll do the same. Small present ideas include remote controlled cars, Matchbox cars, and wall posters.

2. Go Karting

There is one birthday party activity that is sure to please even the most stubborn of children – go karting.

Even if your child isn’t mad about cars, go karting is a fantastic activity for the whole family, and it’s perfect for blowing off some steam and getting competitive. You don’t need a driver’s license to drive a go kart, either – you only need your hands and feet.

This birthday party activity is particularly awesome for all children aged from 4 to 11 year old, who will race battery-powered go karts. Wherever you decide to take your children go karting, make sure that the company you look into has a track record for safety.


 3. Eating Out

Although there is a lack of car-centric restaurants in the UK, it’s important to remember that the majority of restaurants – whether independent or chain – let you book sections of their venues out for parties. You can then change the decor of the restaurant to suit your needs. So, if your little one loves cars, consider having the table cloths changed to Disney Cars ones or your child’s favourite type of car – also, depending on how young your child is, car-themed utensils can also be bought as well as car-themed paper plates.

4. The Cake

Last but not least comes the cake. The birthday cake is everything when it comes to pleasing the little ones – blowing out candles is a tradition that most cultures celebrate. For the best possible birthday cake, we recommend having a custom one made from a cake shop. The fantastic thing about this is that there will definitely be a cake shop in your local area, so you can support local business rather than your local multi-national supermarket.

Although it might cost you a little bit more, you won’t be held back by choice – the imagination is the limit with custom cakes. We say have a stunning Ferrari cake made to finish a party off with style!
