Can we build it? Yes, we can!

Today was my God daughter Tara’s third birthday, and she wanted a construction theme birthday party. She was wearing the sweetest custom made shirt from etsy, and beautiful blue tulle tutu skirt to match! She looked so cute.

Guests were greeted by a welcome table by the door with a “Clock In” Station, where they received personalized hard hats, and tool belts.

After they got their equipment on, it was off to enjoy the activities! There was a rice bin full of toy bulldozers and dump trucks to play in.

There was also a great cardboard house to be coloured and decorated, and “built” with all the fun play tools at the work bench.

There was also a play area with a garage, vehicles, road rug, and wooden blocks.

Another station was set up with homemade play dough, and some really cute tool themed cookie cutters.

Tara’s mom made her a really fun birthday banner, with an amazing tool font for the letters.

Throughout the party, there were all kinds of fun signs, like this one on the front door.

The party colours were yellow, orange and blue. Even the punch was colour co-ordinated.

Heather made cute themed table cloths herself, and really fun “dig in” signs. She used a few toys to hold goodies too.

The sugar cookies were so cute! (Won’t these be cute for Father’s Day!)

She also made cake pops, our new party favourite, co-ordinated in orange and yellow.

There were also lots of sweet candies, and goody bags to pack some up to take home.

The cake was a cupcake pull apart cake, made with the Wilton Transportation Puzzle Cakes Silicone Build-a-Cake set. It turned out to be so cute. I especially liked the cookie crumb “dirt” it was driving through -no detail too small! The candles were mini-tools, from Bulk Barn.

After lunch, the “Build A Cupcake” workshop was open for business.

Builders worked with yellow, orange, and blue icing, sprinkles, and candy lego to build the perfect cupcake!

After all the fun, it was time “Clock Out”, and head home with your very own tool kit loot bag!

    Did you purchase the Home Depot tool belts or did they give them to you?

  6. Hi Michelle, You can buy the tool belts at Home Depot, they’re not expensive, around $1 I think. Have a great construction party!

    Love this idea. Where did you get the tool sets for the party favors?

  8. Hi Lindsey, I think the tool sets were from Toys’r’Us, but it was a few years ago. Best of luck.
