While Cars and Lightning McQueen still hold the number one spot in G’s heart, he also loves, loves, loves Thomas the Tank Engine. Doesn’t every kid go through a Thomas the train phase at some point? He decided he wanted a Thomas the train birthday this year, so we did some simple DIY projects to pull the theme together for an intimate Thomas and Friends birthday party. Click here to see my inspiration board for the party planning on Pinterest, and pin this post for when you need these Thomas the train party ideas for your own train themed kid’s birthday party. I also have links to free Thomas birthday party printables at the end of this post.
After Sawyer’s big Rock n Roll Themed Birthday Party in April, and the huge Disney Cars Themed Birthday Party we did for Grayson last year, I needed to keep it simple for G this year (especially with his birthday falling right before Christmas and right in the smack of all the holiday madness). The solution was to keep it to a small number of kids (just close friends) and hold the party somewhere besides my house (less to clean and prep). So, per G’s request, we held the party at a local indoor playground that G and his friends love.
