Construction Truck Boy's Birthday Party Theme

| By Layne Quintanilla | Party Central Google+Comments

Busy little boys love playing with trucks so that makes a construction themed party a little piece of birthday heaven for a two-year-old! Flynn’s mama, Ellen-Marie, used work-zone signage and caution tape for party decorations and built a mini-construction zone right in their back yard. A darling invitation, themed food choices and an awesome cake were combined with fun activity ideas for a terrific boy’s birthday party.

Sending an invitation encourages anticipation for your party. This invite by Four Harp Designs is a real cutie: there’s a photo of the birthday guy, an RSVP to the site manager plus a call to action advised guests to report to “worksite #2” (the party address).

Most kids love to play dress-up, so Ellen Marie provided pint-sized construction vests and personalized hard hats for each of the little guests as they entered the work zone.  Fresh air, room to roam and protection from the sun made the covered back patio an excellent party space. The kids had fun taking turns riding “the digger” as well as playing at the sand pit and water station. There were buckets and shovels to dig with, in addition to the cars, trucks and diggers.

Plastic milk bottles (good idea with this age group!) each carried a stop sign shape and a guest name. Striped straws in caution tape colors of yellow, black and white added a nice touch.

In addition to fresh fruit and sandwiches, the busy construction helpers ate at the Recharge Station: Wrecking Balls (big Jaffa balls), Boulders (cheese balls), Spare Tires (Cheezels), Nuts and Bolts (Chex-type mix w/chocolate sultanas) and Dirt Cakes (chocolate cupcakes with Oreo dirt).

Isn’t the cake perfect for this theme? Ellen-Marie made it herself! A fondant digger excavates the top layer; a brick wall of frosting and Flynn’s name plate decorate the tiers. I love the mini hard hat, wheel barrel and tools, too. Notice the tiny rocks in the shovel! Even the interior of the cake carried the theme with the construction tape-like stripes.

At the end of the party, in addition to their hats and vests, each child was favored with a thank-you bag of party treats: Wrecking Balls, Nuts and Bolts, Boulders, Spare Tires and a chocolate straw. Each bag was topped with a helium filled balloon, too.

This construction birthday party was a perfect theme for busy two-year-olds. Ellen-Marie focused on age appropriate play, fun food and bright construction colors to create a happy birthday experience for Flynn and his crew!
