We had our Little Kings Birthday party last weekend. I like to have a theme when I am working on an event... it seems to focus me a little. So when I found this tool belt tutorial I was hooked! I made the tool belt for him for Christmas and we got him some toy tools...and recycled a toy tool bench from my brother's family! Now we had the starting of a fun construction party!
Here is what we did!
The rule is: if you ask people to dress up for your party - You have to dress up!
Here we are as construction workers!
Decorations: I used the Caution Tape from Home Depot as streamers
I used one of my Hubby's work tables to display the cake!
I ordered the cake from the grocery store... they make really good cake and it saved me a bunch of time!
I am sure that you can find a fun cake to make if your google it!
We made a table my putting some plywood on a pair of saw horses!
(My parents were such great sports and went ALL OUT to dress up!)
Building with blocks! The kids LOVED this!
I got plastic hard hats from Birthday Party Express for the kids to decorate with stickers and their names. I picked up the letter stickers and other stickers from the dollar store!
Pin the Tool On the Builder:
I made the builder on tag board and cut out the tools from tag board as well.
See my son peeking at the bottom of the picture!
Here is the tool bench we got!
Beat the Builder:
Kids would try to pound the bottom row of nails before the builder pounds the top row! It is a race! If you win you get a "I beat the Builder!" badge to show off!
I made a bag lunch for the crew! I had all the lunch pre-made. This was one of the best ideas of the party! I did not have to be in the kitchen getting food ready during the party AT ALL! And everyone got fed at pretty much the same time! I put every one's name on their lunch which made it fun!
Here is what I put in each lunch. I had juice boxes for kids and cans of pop for adults.
We had a great time! I got some of my ideas from googling "construction party ideas" and others just came to me!
