It seems every little boy (and many girls too!) hits a construction- loving phase - so what better time to plan a construction themed birthday party?
Set up a craft station complete with a gallery wall (patio door?) for the little artists to display their creations. You can use printable colouring sheets with favourite construction vehicles.
Try this Digger craft that brings three dimensions and lots of sensory fun! These alphabet crafts D is for Dump Truck and R is for Road are perfect additions to your craft table too - for those you can pull away from the construction play site!
Free play with construction toys will entertain (make sure there are plenty to go around!). Adults can get in on the fun by dressing up in their construction site finest! If you're lucky enough to have a spring or summer party, outdoor play in the sandbox is ideal.
Set up a designated 'building station' with kid-sized tools.
Playdough and dump trucks make another great activity station to keep little hands busy and engaged!
If you've got a group that will sit still for storytime - we've reviewed some of the best construction themed books, perfect for young children!
Set a table with hard hats (can get these at the Dollar store) and a brown-and-yellow colour scheme!
Food and Cake
Turn a chocolate cake into a construction site using chopped up cookies and chocolate chips for dirt and decorations with mini construction toys!
This cake was submitted during our momstown cake contest and it's a terrific Construction themed cake (much neater than ours!).
Having an outdoor party? Pack a 'construction lunch' into lunchpails and give the lunchpails as your lootbag gift.
Load up brown paper bags with fun mini versions of real construction tools - hammers, drills, bolts, mini trucks - and of course everyone can bring home their hard hat!
