Now that my daughter is almost 2 and will sit for a bit and watch a movie, I was super excited to plan a themed family movie night for the whole family. Y’all the Pinterest Mom in me (I’m half Amazon Prime too) has been waiting for this for so long.
With the release of Cars 3 I knew it was the perfect first one. I didn’t go crazy over the top but definitely enough to make it fun for all of us.
My daughter hasn’t seen all of either of the first two Cars movies (because she doesn’t sit all the way through movies) but she loves her Lighting McQueen car, and her Cars 3 bath toys I snagged this summer in the Target Dollar Spot. She was excited to watch Cars since we left Target with the movie.

I love Free Printables, so I headed over to one of my favorite blogs Hostess With the Mostess to see what they had, and of course they delivered. I’ve used their printables for my Kentucky Derby Party for years and they have the best party ideas!
I also found these printable coloring sheets for my daughter to color while I was getting dinner ready from Mom Junction. We only use color wonder markers so the great part about finding the printable sheets is you can print them right onto blank color wonder paper. I can not recommend Color Wonder enough for you s kids. You can find it here, and the printable color sheets are from which can be found here.
For dinner we had sliders, and Kraft Cars 3 Mac and Cheese. Super simple but themed great for the night.
For dessert we had a cozy cone filled with tires (mini chocolate donuts). I made the Cozy Cone myself with just a 12×12 sheet of orange card stock. And then glued taped the side. You can see the steps below.
I had found some cute Cars suckers at Target right after Halloween and thought those would be a fun addition to the night as well. My daughter also wore some of her favorite pajamas from the Baby Gap for Disney line which are sadly sold out but you can grab some similar ones here.
My husband and I have even Cars fans since the first movie came out. We have been itching to get out to Disneyland to Cars Land since it opened. Cars 3 was better than Cars 2 in my opinion, and I absolutely fell in love with Cruz Ramirez. I’m not going to spoil anything for anyone who hasn’t seen it but Disney and Pixar did a great job with this movie, and I have to say it’s a must see! Grab your copy here while they are on sale.
Did you like Cars 3 as much as the other two in the franchise? Which one is your favorite?
