Cheap Birthday Idea: Make Disney’s “Cars” box cars from used boxes + Video!
This isn’t really a coupon-related post, but it is a money saving one! A little over a year ago my little boy wanted a Disney’s “Cars ” themed birthday party (sound familiar anyone?), so I went to work with a tight budget and made cute little box cars from used cardboard boxes. I’ve had a bunch of questions since so I’ve finally decided to do a How-To video. Why did I think it would be a good idea to finally make this video when I was 8 months pregnant? I do not know. The camera adds 10 pounds, right? Anyway, I have finally found the time to upload the video and thought why not post here? Maybe it’s a kind of random, but hopefully it helps someone.
The rest of the party consisted of the following:
A “car wash” made from blue streamers taped to my archway. Don’t worry, it wll likely take you an hour to hang all those dang streamers and they’ll last about 10 minutes. (But is was one of the kids favorites – so totally worth it!)
Flo’s V8 Cafe:
Luigi’s Leaning (and then falling) tower of tires made of chocolate doughnuts:
Free used tires picked up at my local Big O’ Tires. You can take them back when you’re done free of charge!
P.S. – This could make for a cheap Halloween costume!!
