Caden’s Construction Birthday Party

16 Jan

For my grandson, Caden’s 4th birthday this past November, his mom and I put together a Construction Party for him. As always, we went overboard, but hey, it’s just so much fun to do and everyone enjoys it.

For the front door, Katie made this orange extension cord wreath she saw on Pinterest, and the sign was made with her cricut machine.

Once inside, each child was given a personalized Construction vest, tool belt and plastic construction hat. I had a lot of pink felt and so I decided to make the girls vests pink. Further down you’ll see the favors we made to put inside the tool belts :)

punch container for the construction crew

We used my husbands orange construction cooler for the kids punch and personalized yellow sippy cups. For the gifts, Katie used a wheel barrel…sorry I didn’t get a picture.

construction party snack table

For the goodie table, we had chocolate donut spare tires, orange jello barricade cups, yellow and orange chocolate hard hats, orange cupcakes, chocolate pudding topped with oreo “dirt” and chocolate rocks (in the dump truck)…

marshmallow paint brushes

Chocolate dipped Marshmallow paint brushes on top of a decorated paint can,

chocolate coins

Chocolate coins (day wages) in a toy bulldozer. Katie bought the large construction vehicles and then gave them to Caden afterwards.

construction Food Truck

For the food table, I kinda went over the top. I made this cabinet Construction Food Truck from felt, where we served: Ham and Cheese and Turkey and Cheese sandwiches, hotdogs, pasta cups and variety of chips.

Construction Party Tool Belt FavorsWhen the party was over, each child received 2 crayon tools and “construction” coloring cards to put in their tool belts to take home.
