Leo Turns 3 + His Favorite Birthday Gifts

My not-so-little, little Leo turned 3 this past weekend and we celebrated with a “fast car” themed birthday. We opted for a low-key celebration with just my immediate family, and I have to say… it was AMAZING! I ordered a few decorations on Amazon the same week. I didn’t stress at all about planning. And, Leo absolutely loved it.

 

TODDLER PICKS

Leo’s birthday and birthday party fell on a Sunday, so on Saturday, we let Leo pick the entire day. I mean… we let him pick the entire day of activities. He asked for skittles… we went and got skittles. He asked to go see ducks… we went to the park and watched the ducks. Then, he asked to go to the other duck pond, so we immediately went to the other duck pond. It was just so fun and funny to let him decide what to do. I highly recommend it!

DECORATIONS

A few days before Leo’s birthday, I hopped on Amazon and ordered just a few things to make our home feel like a race track. These items were inexpensive and I just picked a few, but they really made the day feel extra special

10 FT RACETRACK FLOOR RUNNING MAT | here

I bought two of these and placed them in our foyer. The back has tape so they stuck to the floor. Leo LOVED this!

RACING PARTY TABLE COVERS (2 PACK) | here

These were festive and fun. I put all the party food on here and lined up little hot wheels.

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY” RACE CAR BANNER | here

You can’t go wrong with a themed birthday banner.

MONSTER TRUCK DANGLERS (5 PACK) | here

Leo loves monster trucks so I knew he would love seeing them hanging around the house.

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY” CAKE TOPPER (DOUBLE SIDED) | here

Instead of having a fancy cake made like I usually do, I picked one up from our grocery story and added this fun topper along with 2 hot wheels cars.

3 YR OLD RACE CAR TODDLER TEE | here

Leo wore this shirt and loved it! You can pick the color, number, and size.

 

 

GIFTS

I thought I would share a few of Leo’s absolute favorite gifts and toys. At age 3, I feel like he really grew up. He now plays very independently by himself, especially with these…

HOT WHEELS MEGA HAULER TRUCK | here

Probably his favorite gift of all. A hauler to load up all his hot wheels.

HOT WHEELS 9 CAR PACK | here

Leo got a lot of extra small cars, which made all of the other things super fun.

HOT WHEELS 100 CAR CARRYING CASE | here

Mama loves this gift because he now cleans up his cars, puts them into the carrying case, and I just love seeing him run around the house pulling this thing.

HOT WHEELS CITY TOWN CENTER | here

Yet again, more car themed toys.

RACE TRACK WITH 3 CAR GARAGE + 4 WOODEN CARS | here

Leo and Beckham both really like this toy!

GO GO SMART WHEELS 3-IN-1 RACEWAY | here

I love how you can add onto this toy and make the track larger. We all have a fun time doing this together!

SET OF 6 MINI TRUCKS | here

These are fun, larger ones that we love to play with in the pool and bath.

RIDE ON CONSTRUCTION EXCAVATOR | here

Leo actually got this for his 2nd birthday and to this day, it is one of his most used and loved toys.

FISHER PRICE NEIGHBORHOOD GARAGE | here

Leo always asks to play with the garage.

EASEL WITH MAGNETIC NUMBERS & LETTERS | here

Leo has had this for awhile, but he really loves the easel and one special occasions, we will get him things to add to this (like new magnets). He really loves to practice numbers, letters and shapes with magnets on the easel.

KIDS WOODEN TABLE + 4 CHAIR SET | here

Both of my boys love little tables and chairs.
