Idea 8: Do more than refuel with Hot Wheels favor cups

Rev-up the party favors with Hot Wheels party cups.

Idea 14: It’s game time for the pit crew

We've revved up the classic Pin the Tail on the Donkey game and given it a Hot Wheels twist. Partygoers can take turns being a part of the pit crew and trying to pin the tire sticker on the car. A fun idea is splitting the racers into two teams and seeing who can get the most tires the closest.

When the right string is pulled they are off to the races to collect treats in their favor bags or buckets.

Idea 16: Get your party snacks on a healthy track

Let the racers refuel with a healthy snack. You can make your own Hot Wheels pinwheel sandwiches, or just pick some up at the store. Then get them in the party theme with black and white checkered flag picks. Everyone will make a pit stop for these pinwheels.

Idea 17: Create a DIY photo backdrop for your winner's circle

Set the scene for your medal ceremony! Turning your plain walls into a photo booth is easy with a Hot Wheels scene setter. Frame the vinyl backdrop with checkered pennant flags and streamers. Then add a balloon tower on either side and you're ready to snap cool pics of your little speedsters.

Idea 18: Treat the pit crew to some delicious donuts

Create Hot Wheels-themed desserts in record time! Just pick up some store-bought mini donuts and a deck them out with checkered flag picks and a "Spare Tire" sign. Watch out... your pit crew might eat all these delicious spare tires!
