Lesson 172: Cars (& Trucks & Things That Go) Decor

Welcome back to 2-year-old birthday party land! Today's agenda, a few more Richard Scarry themed decorations.

Creature Cupcake Toppers:

After making the Scarry themed bunting, I had some funny pictures leftover. I simply glued these silly creatures to construction paper, which increased their durability. I then taped toothpicks to the back and voile, cupcake toppers that set the tone for a magical and musical party!

Playful Produce Cars:

Richard Scarry is famous for his carrot cars, cheese cars, pickle cars, apple cars, and the fun, appropriately themed creatures responsible for driving them. In a Scarry world, anything can be turned into a car.

Taking a page out of his book, we attempted to make our own playful produce cars.

The wheels and drivers are from a duplo set. The produce is from, well, the grocery store. I simply cut out a square on the top of the various pieces of produce large enough to wedge the driver in.

Super simple!

In fact, writing this blog post took significantly longer than completing these projects!

Stay tuned for a few, simple CARS and TRUCKS and THINGS THAT GO activities, appropriate for children age 2-5.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to party decorations, perfection is not necessary. Creativity is.
