|Coupons for each race|
I wanted a crowd of elves, hence the clipart above. I will enlarge it to fit two of the big glass doors along the floor track.
Here is Santa in his hot rod. I will have this enlarged and mounted to put on the counter behind the buffet, since the go-carts will race through the kitchen as a part of the course.
Above is one of the elves I will enlarge and mount to stand along the way waving a real flag.

|We tested this with lots of adults, the heaviest being 240 pounds. We added a pillow to make the seat wider for adults.|
I ordered battery operated remote control cars on Amazon.com for the conference room table. I needed vinyl to cover the table's pad as it comes in pieces. I ordered that on line at www.sailrite.com because they had lots of choices at good prices. I didn't want the cars to run off of the edge of the table so I bought two 18' lengths of white rope lights. I can use clear packing tape to attach them to the vinyl. I am going to use fake grass in the middle of the table with some plain tubing from Home Depot surrounding it.
I bought a set of six of these cardboard cars for centerpieces for the kitchen tables, where the staff will be sitting down for a catered lunch. I also ordered checkered flags, napkins, and dessert plates. The catering company is providing plates. I will probably just use disposable cups, since it is easier on the staff members who clean up after each party.
I looked all over the internet for small cardboard box cars to use with the candy buffet. I couldn't find any, so my "wheels" started turning. I came up with the design below using one piece of 8.5" x11" landscaped card stock.
|You are not seeing the white tabs on the front of the car which hold it together. They are created when the clipart is printed.|
Cut along the outside diagonal lines to take off the white triangle areas. Slit the fron grill down between the orange and white spaces to create tabs. Slit the back, small, grill along the actual sides of the graphic to create tabs. Fold front and back grills upwards, and tabs upwards and inwards and glue together. Crease sides along the inner diagonals. The white space on the bottom of print is the bottom of the car.
