Quick and Easy Mickey and the Roadster Racers Birthday Party

Sharing helps me grow, thank you!

My son just turned six and he’s slightly obsessed with Mickey Mouse. He has dressed like Mickey for three of five Halloween costumes. And we’ve had several birthday parties in a Mickey theme (including a Sorcerer’s Apprentice party). Of course this year he was set on a Mickey and the Roadster Racers birthday party. I was ready to make that happen – on a budget, of course!

With four kids (and two of them have birthdays around holidays), I just don’t have it in me for anything over-the-top. These are very quick and easy ideas. I’ve even included my FREE PRINTABLES so you can host your own Mickey and the Roadster Racers birthday party!

Roadster Racers Birthday Party on a Budget

The Roadster Racers has a simple color scheme of red, black, yellow. You could add in black and white checked accents too! I went with plain red tablecloths with black plates and napkins.

If you’re on a budget you want to skip the “Disney” licensed products. They are going to be considerably pricier than anything that’s unthemed. No expensive character-laden designs needed. Carry over the color scheme onto balloons or crepe paper streamers. Balloons (that you hand pump or blow up yourself) are cheaper than helium. And crepe paper is an inexpensive way to make a colorful statement.

Use black and white checked scrapbook paper to create pennant flags. Simply cut triangle shapes from the paper, punch holes in the top with the pointed end facing down. Then thread the pennant flags onto gift wrapping curling ribbon and tie up.

I had a “Kitchen Sink” bowl from Disneyland that made a perfect snack container! I found the plastic storage boxes in the dollar section at Target. See what you have around the house in the color schemes to use before making purchases.


Roadster Racers Outfit

My birthday boy wore the Mickey Mouse costume I’d made him for Halloween during his play date party. Here is my costume tutorial if you’d like to make one for your racer! If you don’t have a costume, consider having your child dress in an outfit or t-shirt that fits the theme.

Etsy is an awesome place to find unique and creative shirts in the Roadster Racers birthday theme. It’s something that you kid can wear year-round. And once they outgrow the shirt, cut out the design and remake it into a pillow cover!

More Ways to Save

Host a birthday party that’s not during a meal time and let parents know you’ll be serving snacks. By skipping the pizza or sandwiches, you can seriously save hundreds of dollars on the cost of your party! Most kids don’t even want to eat at parties, choosing to play with their friends instead. Offer a few snacks and some beverages and save!

Roadster Racers Themed Food

This was a fun and quirky way to incorporate the theme of the party, with snacks inspired by the show. We had a play date at the park after lunch so we just served simple goodies like mini doughnuts (“spare tires”) and cupcakes (“traffic light treats”). I’ve included the FREE PRINTABLE for each of these so you can print at home and use for your own party!

Traffic Light Treats

I made easy cupcakes at home. On the chocolate frosted cupcakes, I split mini Oreo cookies in half and placed them in the frosting to resemble Mouse ears. On the vanilla frosted cupcakes we used plain M&M candies in yellow, red and green to look like a street light (you might see an orange M&M…we ran out of yellow – Guess what, nobody cared!)

Nuts & Bolts and Dip Sticks

Store-bought Trail mix is a quick Nuts & Bolts treat. My friend Leslie of Trips with Tykes has a great Mickey Mouse Trail Mix so make it your own!

Pretzel sticks or rods are perfect Dip Sticks. You could also use baby carrots and Ranch dressing!

Spare Tires

Mini chocolate doughnuts make tasty Spare Tires. We didn’t have any extras of these laying around after the party!

Coolants

Our drink section was labeled Coolants, to chill down our active party guests! You could also put this label on an actual cooler.

Roadster Racers Gifts

I purchased this small Mickey race car toy to use as a “cupcake topper” to set the theme for our party. It doubled as decoration and a toy to play with later as a memento for my son’s birthday.
