Construction Birthday Party

We’ve paved the way for you to construct the perfect birthday party for the budding builder in your life, construction cake included.

Construction Party Food

You’re now entering the party zone, hardhats required! Here you’ll find everything little construction workers need to keep busy at work, from drinks to dessert.

Construction-Party-Food_02_Meal

Create a build-your-own-burger zone by setting out mini burgers along with cheese and all the fixings. A careful eye will notice that the red ketchup, yellow mustard and green pickles make a perfect condiment stoplight!

Construction-Party-Food_03_Fruit

Fruit is way more fun to eat from a stick, and double the fun to eat from the back of a dump truck! We used a simple melon baller to create uniform shapes of cantaloupe, then threaded them on wooden skewers (blueberries too!).

Construction-Party-Food_04_Pop

Construction-orange soda and pails of Green Giant Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips in Garden Ranch add color and crunch to lunch. What’s not to love about that?

Construction-Party-Food_05_Donuts

For a final touch, we added store-bought chocolate-coated doughnuts, or as young builders see them, spare tires.

Construction Birthday Cake 

This clever Construction Site Cake is easy to make with Betty Crocker cake mix, ready-made frosting and a few toy trucks. There’s literally no way to mess it up!

Construction Party Favors

Just because the party is over doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! Send friends on their way with paint cans—found at a container store—filled with Nature Valley Granola Bars, Fruit Roll-Ups and Fruit by the Foot. Top with a construction toy and adorn with a handmade thank-you sign made with craft paper and stickers, then pat yourself on the back for a build well done.

Invitations

Notify your child’s favorite hard-hat friends with free printable invites and set the stage for the fun to be had!

Activities

Pin the Nail on the Hammer activity 

What’s a construction crew to do without something to nail? Round ‘em up for a fun, easy game! Just print out the hammer and nails and attach the hammer to a wall or hanging poster board. Each child will take its turn attempting to “pin” (with tape) the nail on the hammerhead while blindfolded. Whoever gets closest wins a prize of your choice!
