Make these fun refueling stations:

So this is borrowed from a kids party idea I found on Pinterest, but it is such a cool idea I would want it at my party too. Fill those big plastic water jugs with the spouts with different beverages. Then add a funnel and a rubber hose. You can print out fun labels to go on the fronts of your beverage dispensers to make them “leaded”, “unleaded”, “diesel” or similar fun fueling labels. Just a cute idea!

Test your road sign knowledge:

Instead of pin the tale on the donkey, you can pin the right message on the sign. Use cardboard, paint and Velcro to create several traditional road signs. Make the messages on the sign separate so you can attach them or remove them with the Velcro easily. Then let everyone take a turn at trying to put the right message on the right sign. This can be tons of fun!

“Drive” through an obstacle course:

Set up an obstacle course in the backyard of orange cones, etc. for everyone to have fun “driving” or running through. Blindfold the “driver” and have everyone else shout instructions to them to see if they can understand how to navigate without their eyesight. The person who makes it through with the least amount of trouble or errors could win a special prize.

Give everyone a compass and map as party favors:

Every driver will need a good atlas or state map and compass in their car for emergencies. These are fun and inexpensive items to add into a party favor bag along with a gift card or token for the local car wash.

These fun driver’s license party ideas are perfect for making your special day even more fun. Being able to drive is a great privilege, and really hard work to accomplish. Celebrating with you friends is tons of fun!

  1. I have never heard of a driver’s licence party before. It’s an interesting concept, though.

  2. A Driver’s License Party is new to me, but it looks like such a fun idea! My oldest will likely be getting his Pilot’s license before his driver’s license. Maybe I can use some of these ideas to celebrate it!

  3. It’s definitely a celebration-worthy moment. I like your ideas! I wish we would have done something cool.

  4. These are totally amazing ideas for a driver’s license party. I totally love the fuel station and the cake is so unique as well as perfect for the occasion. Thanks for sharing.

  5. This is such a great idea. I love the fuel up station. That could work for just about any party. My kids aren’t anywhere close to getting a license but great ideas for parents who have kids in that age range.

  6. This is such a fun idea! I love the theme but the cake that looks like truck tires is amazing!!

  7. All of these are really great ideas. I never had a party. I wonder if its too late 😉 We have a while before kiddo is a driver. I can’t wait for that! 🙂

  8. These are cute fun party ideas. Haven’t heard of any party like this but it seems like a great one to throw from time to time.

  9. Omg now this is a party idea I have never heard of before! Absolutely love it though! That cake is just too cool!

  10. What a cool concept, I’d never thought of a driver’s licence party. My oldest just waited till he turned 18 because we couldn’t swing a driving school.

  11. This is such a neat idea. I have never had a drivers license yet maybe when I get one I can have a party for myself.
