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

Outdoor decorations:

Attach a bouquet of helium filled balloons to a light post or mailbox so there will be no mistaking where the fun will be that day!

Greet your guests by hanging a banner from your entrance area.

Place orange cones around the perimeter of your construction site, and rope off all the areas with Under Construction Warning Tape. Run the streamers between trees, around porches, and anywhere else that unauthorized personnel should avoid! The cones can also be used for several party activities.

Using orange construction paper, fold into cone shape. Use a paint pen to personalize a cone for each guest. Set one at each place setting as a place card.

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

Display a Muck cake in the center of the table…the kids will love the close up view!

Napkins can be laid out on a buffet table, or can be displayed at each place setting. Place napkins in the center of each place setting at an angle, or unfold them and place them in glasses for a tall dramatic look. The napkins can also be tied (and bundled with plastic cutlery) with a multitude of items to match your theme. Try Curling Ribbon, Gossamer Streamers, ric-rac or ribbon.

Decorations:

Construction Zone Truck Standees Set/3

Each set contains three one-sided cardboard Construction Truck Standees that range in size from 22 - 27 inches high x 28 inches wide.

Never underestimate the power of music to set the tone for your party.

Add some fun props related to your theme like this
28" INFLATABLE HAMMERS to create a spectacular party setting!

Add some special lighting to create a realistic construction zone with our 8" TRAFFIC LIGHT

Balloons

Balloons can economically transform any room, backyard or park into a festive space in a matter of minutes by using some of the following ideas:

Use a Helium Tank to fill balloons. Tie Curling Ribbon to balloons, and group them together. (Odd numbers look best: 3, 5, or 7) Place groupings of balloons around the party room.

Tie a bunch of helium filled balloons to the birthday child’s chair, or tie one to the back of each chair.

If you choose not to use helium, tie balloons to varying lengths of curling ribbon, and hang balloons from the ceiling, or from a light fixture over the party table.

Balloon arches are ideal for photo backdrops, entryways, and to hi-light different areas around your party room and are easy to make.

If you don't want to do a Balloon Arch, a column of balloons will work much the same way that arches do, and can be used for entryways, photo backdrop, or for a terrific splash of color when placed at intervals around a party room. You make columns in the same way as arches but they stand straight-up and can be built to any height you wish.

Balloon swags make the perfect accessory. They can be hung across the ceiling of a tent, or a room with a high ceiling like banquet halls or a gymnasium.

Streamers

Streamers offer an economical way to splash lots of color around the site of the party. Create a fun and colorful effect by draping streamers from the center of the ceiling to the walls on each side of the room, or between trees if the party is being held outdoors. The streamers can be twisted after they are anchored to a ceiling wall or table for a more dimensional look. Two different colored streamers can be placed back to back and twisted for a unique look. They also look terrific hanging from doorframes or cascading vertically down walls.

Party Activities

A heavy-duty construction party just wouldn’t be complete without some “Can we fix it? Yes, we can!” activities. This theme is perfect for children ages 2-6.

Let those who arrive early play with Bubbles while they wait for all the guests to arrive.

Building and moving dirt is a thrill for kids who love construction equipment. 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. One 4’ X 50’ roll of  gray Solid Color Flat Paper will go a long way. Cut off large sections of paper, and crumple them up to make boulders of varying sizes. Place the boulders all around your construction site.

After the road is paved, the building project can begin! Decorate a colossal cardboard box House in any colors you would like. Put Construction 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.

After the site is cleared, let the kids create an asphalt road out of the same 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.

For a gloriously messy but fun activity, arrange to have a truckload of sand, mulch or topsoil dropped off during the party. Throw several inexpensive Construction Trucks into the dirt while it is being dumped. The kids will love seeing a real dump truck at work, and then they can dig for hidden treasures while they play in the dirt.

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 our 8" Traffic Light  in place of music, and turn the light off and on as the children play. Place Yellow 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 construction engineers finish your activities faster than you planned…don’t panic! Play some standard party favorites such as “Oh, no Pilchard!” (use a stuffed cat as the Hot Potato), “Yield, Stop, Go” (Red Light, Green Light), Limbo under the I-Beam, and “Roley, Roley, Muck to the Rescue!” (Duck, Duck, Goose.) Another alternative would be to visit www.Nickjr.com for some free Bob the Builder coloring pages.

A nail apron is a handy thing for mom or dad to wear at the party, and can be used for wipes, a camera, Kleenex, matches, birthday candles, etc.

Heat up the fun while playing games.



Party Food & Cake Ideas

As the excitement is so high at children’s birthday parties, most children under the age of 10 will eat very little, and the waste can be disheartening. If you are entertaining a younger crowd, schedule your party during a time when parents will not expect that their children will eat a meal…Bob’s busy crew doesn’t have much time to stop for lunch, so pack them a sack lunch that can be eaten high up in the girders of a new building! Add a sandwich, chips, a cookie and an apple to a brown paper sack. Don’t forget to put a little bowl of milk out for Pilchard!

Using a paint pen, label Pull Top 20 oz. Bottles with each foreman’s name. They can use this “Thermos” throughout the party, and then take the bottle home as a favor.

Serve sandwiches cut into shapes with construction vehicle cookie cutters. Cut sugar cookies into squares, diamonds, triangles and octagons, and frost them to look like road signs.

Turn a Construction Hard Hat upside down and it makes a terrific serving bowl for dry snacks or fruit.

Try our “Construction Zone Blast”, and you’ll fill the room with “ooohs and aaahs”. Start by serving red punch. After you have placed a filled glass in front of each guest, add some dynamite dust (a few POP ROCK BLUE ROCKS(18 PER BX) ™ candies) to each one. Since this candy is processed with carbon dioxide, it will crackle, pop, and spit when it comes into contact with a liquid.

“Muck” Cake!

All the party guests will know how much you care…after they consume this easy-to-make “Muck” Cake!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

One packaged chocolate cake mix
Two 3 oz. boxes of chocolate pudding prepared according to directions on the box
One box of Oreo™ Cookie Crumbs
One well-washed construction vehicle. If you can find a good-sized Muck™ or Scoop™, that would be perfect for this theme. If you can’t, a Tonka Dump Truck is a wonderful alternative.
One 9 X 13” cake pan
One yellow shovel scoop

Prepare and bake the cake according to directions on the package. After cake is completely cooled, cut it into bite-sized pieces. Layer the bed of the vehicle with cake, pudding, and crumbs. Continue to add layers until the dump truck is piled high with “dirt.” Serve heaping scoops of dirt with the shovel and enjoy the smiles you’ll see!

If you are serving more people than can be accommodated by one boxed mix, we recommend that you simply bake extra cupcakes, or an extra rectangular cake. All can just be frosted in matching frosting, and cut and served behind the scenes. You may want to bake some white cupcakes with vanilla frosting, in the event that some children don’t want the chocolate overload.
