Decorations for Construction Pals Kids Birthday Party
Lead the way to the party area by placing yellow safety signs on the street. Write the words “Warning: Super Fun Party Up Ahead”. At the door place an even bigger safety sign with the words “Caution: _________ Party Area. Only fun people are allowed”. Place real plastic traffic cones around the party area and with yellow and black balloons attached to each cone. Rent metal chairs and tables and leave them bare for a more industrial look. As a centerpiece place toy dump trucks in the middle of each table and fill them with munchies or rock candies. Use yellow, orange, and black paper plates, cups, and utensils. For serving bowls, use clean overturned hard hats.
Construction Pals Birthday Cake
Ask your baker to bake a yellow truck-shaped cake. You can also ask the baker to make a little boy dressed as a construction worker in a hard hat. If you want to bake your own cake, make a dome-shaped cake and attach a half dome on one side. Frost the cake with yellow icing to make it look like a hard hat.
Construction Pals Games and Activities
- Construction Crew Check-In. As each guest arrives ask them to present their “punch cards” and stamp their cards using a special personalized stamp pad for the party. The stamp pad can say anything from “Welcome to ________ birthday party” to “Passed Safety Inspection”. After stamping their cards, give each guest a hard hat and badge (name tags).
- Demolish the [Hot] Dog Tower. Divide the kids into two groups. Place two piles of hot dogs with each pile having the same number of hot dogs as the kids in each group. Ask the kids to run to the hot dog tower and each one hot dog before running back to their team. The kids have to swallow the hot dogs before the next players can take their turn.
- Construction Contest. Divide the kids into groups of three, giving each group a pile of Lego blocks. Give the kids 10 to 15 minutes to construct their masterpieces. The group with the best work gets a prize.
- Construction Pals Pinata. Buy a ready-made bulldozer pinata and fill it with goodies. You can fill them with candies and small plastic toys.
- Construction Cone Ring Toss. Reserve an area where guests can play this game. Use real traffic cones. For every three rings that go in a cone, the guest gets a prize. The prize does not have to be big like stickers and candies, but you can also give away plastic construction toys, stuffed toys, or even real traffic cones!
Food and Drinks for Construction Pals Kids Birthday Party
Construction Chips and Dip. Serve some chips in over-turned-hard hats. Make sure the hard hats are really clean.
Sandwiches. Construction workers sometimes seem to be on an all sandwich diet so serve a variety of sandwiches. Don’t forget the classic peanut butter sandwich but serve heartier ones like roast beef sandwiches.
Fruit. The construction worker’s perfect pair to sandwiches? A piece of fruit. Serve apples, pear, oranges, and seedless grapes.
Crunchy veggies. Serve some carrots, celery, cucumber, and other crunchy veggies on a platter. Make sure you place the dip next to the platter.
For drinks, serve iced decaffeinated coffee, energy drinks, and ice-cold water.
For party favors, giveaway the hard hat handed out at the start of the party. You can also add plastic little trucks and tools, Lego blocks, and modeling clay in the loot bag. Throw in some rock candy as a special treat.
You will need lots of yellow cardboard and black markers to make warning signs. You will also need plenty of hard hats, traffic cones, and yellow and black balloons.
