Construction Party Invitations:

 

Cut out and color pictures of Hard Hats and write the information on these. Or you can blow up a yellow balloon -hold the end (don't tie it), write the party details (and some Caution - Construction Site Warnings) in Black marker. Then wipe off end and send in mail. When inflated, the guests can read the information and have a balloon to play with.


Take a picture of the Birthday Child in their Construction outfit and attach to yellow construction paper with details on back, along with black stripes

Ask all the little guests to come to the party dressed for some messy fun. Overalls, blue jeans, and flannel shirts are the order of the day.



Construction Party Game Ideas:

 


Fill the Bucket - You will need: 2 buckets or bowls of equal size; one spoon or small shovel for each guest; and a pile of sand next to each bucket (make sure you have enough sand to fill each bucket). This game can also be played in a sandbox. Divide your guests into two teams. Have each team sit around their bucket. When you say "go," each team must try to fill their bucket with sand, using only their spoons. 
Small hard hats or toolboxes, with markers, stickers, paint or glitter to decorate themselves.

Digging for Buried Treasure - This is a perfect game for someone who has a sandbox. Hide a number of small toys in a sandbox and have your guests dig through the sand in search of fun treasures.

Bean Bag Toss - This game is even more fun if you have a foreman’s construction hat for the bean bag thrower to wear. Before the party, make "rock" bean bags out of a pair of gray socks by filling them with beans and closing them with a rubber band. If your child has a toy dump truck, it can be the target. If not, you can draw a dump truck on the side of a cardboard box. Give each child three tries to hit the dump truck from about 5 feet away (or throw the "rocks" through the hole cut in the cardboard. If this is too easy, move the target farther away. Your guests will enjoy a real sense of accomplishment when they’re able to successfully play this game!

Off to Work I Go Relay Race - Use safety goggles, tool belts, levis, work boots and gloves. The children divide up into teams and each team stands in two different lines, 10 feet apart, facing each other. Each time they ran across to their teammate they had to dress the other "for work".

Building Time - Let the children "construct" a home of their own - from graham crackers, icing and candies. Make at the beginning of the party and the kids can take them home with them. Set out small amounts of different types of small candies (M&Ms, candy corns, etc) and le them build their own.

Bulldozer Toss - Using bean bags, have the children take turns tossing bean bags into a large plastic construction truck or bulldozer.

Check with a local tool rental about getting a Bulldozer to stop by the party for picture taking!

Building and moving dirt is a thrill for kids who love construction equipment. Set the stage for a construction project that all the kids can be involved in as a team. Let the birthday child act as supervising foreman on the job. If you can find an old set of blueprints, that would be a fun prop for the birthday boy to carry as he leads his crew. First, have the little builders clear the construction site of all the boulders. Provide dump trucks, wheelbarrows, and other play construction equipment to help them get the job done. After the site is cleared, let the kids create an asphalt road out of Flat Paper. This can be as long or short as you want it to be. Provide yellow poster paint, and let them paint the centerlines in the road.  After the road is paved, the building project can begin! Use the Color-Your-Own House that the kids can “build” and then decorate. Put Party Zone streamers around the perimeter of the house, and provide additional poster paint, masking tape, construction signs, etc. for the kids to add to the house. Encourage each child to add his or her own handy-work to the house, and it will be a keepsake that will be played with long after the party ends.

 

The personalized Giant 3-D Bulldozer is the ultimate construction decoration, and it will be the hub of all the activity at the party!  Take the time to have each child pose alone, and with the birthday child for pictures in the bulldozer.  The priceless photos can then be mailed to each guest with a thank you note at a later date.  Make sure that each child gets a turn pulling the lever in the cab…that’s what it’s all about for these big guys!  

For a fun (but messy) activity,  have a truckload of sand, mulch or topsoil dropped off during the party. Throw a bunch of inexpensive construction vehicles and other small toys into the dirt while it is being dumped. The kids will love seeing a real dump truck at work, and while they play in the dirt, they can dig for hidden treasures.


Run a foreman training relay between two teams or set up an obstacle course. You’ll need two oversized orange construction vests or flannel shirts, two tool belts, two pairs of oversized men’s work boots, two Construction Hats, some Orange Cones to race through, and massive boulders (gray Flat Paper) to avoid. You can make the game more challenging by giving the teams wheelbarrows to run through the course, or a toy dump truck filled with water or dirt.

Play this game using the same concept as the classic game of musical chairs…one less hat than there are children for each round. Use the Traffic Light in place of music, and turn the light off and on as the children play. Place Construction Hats on a table that the kids must walk around while the light is flashing. When the light is turned off, the kids must scramble to put on a hat. The child without a hat must leave the game, and the game continues with one less hat until there is one child remaining – the winner.

In the event that your little engineers finish the activities faster than you planned…play some standard party favorites such as “Tool Time” (Hot Potato), “Yield, Stop, Go” (Red Light, Green Light), Limbo under the I-Beam, and “Bobcat, Bobcat, Loader” (Duck, Duck, Goose.)
 



Construction Party Food Ideas:

 


Crank Case Oil Sundaes - You will need: Vanilla ice cream; Chocolate syrup; *Chopped peanuts (make sure your guests aren't allergic to them first). Directions: Make chocolate sundaes and top them with the chopped peanuts. Then add a toothpick with a homemade red construction paper "stop sign" glued to the top. The kids will love that extra special touch, but nothing will stop them from eating these tasty sundaes.

Drivable Sandwiches - Prepare your child’s favorite type of sandwich. Cut off two corners to make a car shape. Then, add cucumber slices for the wheels. We’re sure your guests will race to get their hands on these fun sandwiches.

Truck Wheels - You will need: 1/2 English muffin for each child; Hot dog for each guest; 16 oz. can of baked beans; and 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese. Directions: (1.) Split English muffins in half and arrange on a cookie sheet; (2.) Spread beans on top of the muffin halves; (3.) Sprinkle cheese on top of the beans; (4.) Cut hot dogs into thirds, then cut each length wise into four strips; (5.) Arrange 6 hot dog strips for wheel spokes on top of each muffin; (6.) Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese melts.

Jell-O® Vehicles - Purchase your child's favorite flavor of Jell-O®. Follow the direction on the back of the box to make Jigglers®. Use different vehicle-shaped cookie cutters to create a fun treat!




Construction Party Decorations:

 

 

Hang large traffic signs around the room. Have a pile of dirt (or sand) in the backyard if an outdoor party, and use lots of Construction Tape around the perimeter. Decorate the tables with small cars and trucks (construction vehicles if you have them). Flashing red lights and Cones always work well too! Hang yellow and Red balloons, and yellow and black crepe paper streamers everywhere you can!

Turn well-washed Construction Hats upside down, and use them as serving bowls for dry snacks such as chips, pretzels, cheese balls or other hearty fare.

 

Construction Party Favors: 

 

Small hard hats filled with stickers, miniature construction vehicles, construction vests are big hits, small toolboxes (with stickers they can decorate?), filled with pretend tools are great gifts too.
