Disney-Pixar Cars Week Day #3 ~ Cars 2 3D Kindergarten Graduation Party

Mater Pinata
As I type this, I am getting teary-eyed because tomorrow is Joey's last day of kindergarten . . .sniffle, sniffle!  Joey had a slow start as an infant and didn't actually start talking until he was about three and a half almost four years old, and even that was just a couple of words put together.  But I will tell you that he has had a great year in kindergarten and other than a few lingering issues with writing, he has completely caught up with his peers, much to my relief.  To celebrate his hard work and great success, we are throwing him a kindergarten graduation party tomorrow with a Cars 2 theme. 

With the release of Cars 2 on Friday (have I mentioned at all this week how excited we are for that??), there are Cars 2 party supplies everywhere!  I first saw the set in a birthday supply catalog, but as I searched my local stores, I found the things I needed at a much lower price.  Wal-Mart offers most of the items at $2 to $2.50.  But this week at Target, they are advertising the Cars 2 party supplies for $1.50 to $2.50.

One of my favorite things about Disney party supplies (the princess sets are the same way), they have several different styles in each pack of plates.  But what is MOST exciting about the Cars 2 supplies is that they have a 3D effect, though they do not come with 3D glasses.  If you want to make your own 3D glasses, check out Vacation Field Guides Make Your Own 3D Glasses (if you  have a Cricut machine, make sure you read the comments section). 

Here's what I have found so far:

Dinner Plates with 3D Effect (8 pack with three different styles)

Dessert Plates with 3D Effect (8 pack with four different styles)

Balloon Time Helium Balloon Kit: Wal-Mart offers this kit for $19.99 for 30 balloons, but at BJ's Wholesale, they offer it for $21.99 for 50.  The kit includes the tank, wide selection of balloons and ribbon.

Mater Pinata (Joey will go crazy when he sees this!  He has been asking to have a pinata for his birthday for so long, but since he has a December birthday, we just don't have a place to have one inside.)

Joey has been so excited for this that this morning he let me know it was 5:11, and he was up early because he was so excited it is the day of his party!

Thanks, Jenn! Unfortunately, due to downpours today, the Mater Pinata will be saved for another day, but he made a very cute centerpiece! LOL!

Could you tell me where to get a mater pinata like that? My little boy saw it and wants one for his birthday. I really appreciate it. Lacee

Hi Lacee! I found this particular Mater pinata at WalMart but our local Party Supply Store also carried them. It was a big hit with the kids!
