A look back: Mr. V’s 2nd Birthday playdate

September 1, 2014

Mr. V’s 3rd birthday is just around the corner and I am planning an awesome Monster Truck party for him. But first I wanted to do a quick look back at his 2nd birthday – a little Cars playdate we had on the day of his birthday. He had the big birthday party in conjunction with his sister, you can see their Bug party HERE!

While we did have a big joint birthday party for the kiddos, blogged about here, I had to still do something special for Mr. V’s actual birth date. For Miss O we had a my little pony playdate, so for Mr. V we did a little cars playdate, which was not nearly as elaborate as his sister’s but still it was fun.

The morning of his birthday I put up a few decorations in the “Cars” theme. I stumbled upon THIS blog post from All Things G & D, a month ago and used the free printables she was offering to make this banner. I added my own touches with some Cars images I found on the internet! V noticed the “Cars” right away!


In his birthday outfit, blogged about here, we dropped big sis at preschool and then went over to our town’s community center for a playtime they call “toddler time”. You pay a few bucks a kid and can spend from 8am – noon running around the gym and playing with various push toys, ride ons, slides, balls, etc. Most kids last an hour or so, so it was a perfect place to meet up with friends for a little birthday playdate!

I made a Birthday Pit Pass for each of the kids, (tweaking a printable template from All Things G&D) – and attached it to a “Cars” ribbon lanyard. I might have to do a tutorial on the lanyard – I think I came up with a pretty cool way to attach the pass to the ribbon!

The kids ran around playing and we stopped mid way to have a birthday cupcake snack and pass out the goody bags! I made each kid a personalized car tote – detailed post to come soon! Of course I didn’t get any pics of the kids with their totes!!

V doesn’t have a whole lot of friends yet – so it was so much fun that these 3 little ones could join us to play!!
