Mickey Monday: Test Track

IMG_1632 This Test Track party was one of the kids favorite Mickey Mondays of all. It was another celebration of the fact that we were going to Disney soon and that our son would be tall enough to ride Test Track for the first time. For decorations, I made the racing flag banner by pressing a rectangular ink pad in a pattern on scratch paper. IMG_1641  I took apart a modern car calendar from that year, and it did double duty as decor and a game. I took one of my son’s toys and set it up as a centerpiece. My husband has a Test Track car for some reason, so I set it on the track.  IMG_1645

Dinner was a cool, little hero car, complete with a pretzel and olive steering wheel. We also had a salad on the side.  IMG_1638 IMG_1634 Dessert was an oreo ice cream cake because my husband said it resembled a wheel! IMG_1672

I set a course up for the kids to drive through and complete. I believe it was timed, and there were certain things they had to complete. They didn’t get it on the first try, so they went through it again. They enjoyed it immensely!

Our last game was a tricky one. We used the calendar pictures of cars and their task was to label each car correctly with make and model. I had already printed the cars makes and models on pieces of paper and they had to match these with the car and tape them to the right picture. IMG_1661 Daddy helped our boy, as he was only 4 at the time! IMG_1657 These were not cars you would ever see on the road, but sometimes there were clues on the cars themselves if they were observant enough. They did okay with it, and the fun was in the playing of the game anyway, not in how many they guessed correctly.

This Test Track Mickey Monday might be back in the rotation for this upcoming vacation, just because my kids have requested it several times!
