When a little boy is obsessed with Trucks, Cranes, Diggers, and every Man in an Orange Vest is associated as a Workerman… well picking the party theme for his birthday is easy! Do you have a mini construction guy at your house? If so we hope this post, brings you some ideas and thoughts on the planning of the day.
An at home party
I love a home affair as then there is plenty of time to decorate, in the lead up to the day.
For our construction party, we visited a local Be Safe business who supply to the real workmen… from black and yellow safety tape, roped orange flags and reflective materials, my almost 3 year old was in Construction Heaven. We even secured part of our party favours here, black plastic tool boxes…
We simply added a few treats, made some Hammer cookies and as the only area the Safety Shop couldn’t help with was mini construction vests, we decided to make these too! At 3 years old, none of boys were going to be looking too closely at our sewing expertise… an old blue table clothe cut up and some bright orange or yellow for the front, then sew the reflective tap on the back and write on their names with a Sharpie Pen!
Each mini construction guy received their own stick on mo, a Huge hit!
