and they’re raaaacing …

The Festival of Seven has begun.

Our biggest little guy turns the BIG 7 tomorrow so we celebrated with a little Slot Car Party with a couple of his buddies on the weekend.

After a last minute call out for advice on how to best make a road on a cake, I ‘borrowed’ some black fondant from a friend and got to work on it.  OK, I know it’s no masterpiece and I think it’s safe to say the road looked more like the half fixed tarmac that Lightning McQueen cobbled together to get out of Radiator Springs in the first movie, rather than a smooth as silk race track.

Nevertheless, my gorgeous 6 year old was terribly impressed and grateful.  He also now knows how to make “grass” from shredded coconut and green food colouring – a fundamental life skill.

I’m a serious pinterest addict so of course that was the first place I headed to find further inspiration.  I came across these fab free printables from vinnie pearce blog (sooo love a free printable) and used them for labelling food and drinks.

All in all this party was a big hit with the little fellas, was relatively stress free for mama and didn’t cost a fortune.  Everyone’s a winner.
