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.

Clocking Into The Party

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

Construction Birthday Party Activities

After they got their equipment on, it was off to enjoy the activities!

Rice Bin Construction Site

There was a rice bin full of toy bulldozers and dump trucks to play in.  This was such a fun sensory activity for the kids and they loved it.  

So easy to put together too.  Use a large and low plastic container and fill it with rice, then add in lots of construction vehicles.

Cardboard House Building

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

Construction Birthday Party Decorations

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.  It’s made from poster board and sticker letters.

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.

Build A Cupcake

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

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

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