Big Truck Construction Party



A couple weeks ago I shared the little guy's birthday invitation.  Well, this last weekend we celebrated his 3rd birthday.  Today I'm sharing some of the party details.  




 A few weeks ago we went to a birthday party with a fun craft table for the kids.  
They liked it so much that we set one up. 



The ladybug and little guy had fun making these signs.  I hot glued a paper straw to a wood block I had, and they painted it black. Then I taped the paper sign to the top.  They like helping make party decorations.  I seriously think the party prep is one of their favorite parts!



 Now this is some seriously fun road tape!  They got it in their stockings this Christmas, and it fit in well with our party theme.  This stuff can go on floors, walls, where ever, and does not leave marks when you remove it.  Serious fun.  I found it at Perpetual kid.


 *Please disregard those horrible and uneven curtain rods...that's next on the to do list.*  I made the paper banner will the clipart set from THIS post.


 I found these construction cups HERE.  
I used a chalkboard label from HERE and wrote the name on with a silver sharpie marker.

 Everything tastes better with a straw.  Honest truth.
(edited: gray straws found HERE)
 I labeled the jar with one of THESE chalkboard labels and a chalk marker.

 Loved these construction utensils!  
Maybe they will inspire the little guy to actually eat ALL his veggies?

 I found this idea on Pinterest.  I found an image of a fuel gauge, printed it, and taped it to the container we were going to use for juice.

 "I'm three, Mama!"



I made the cupcake toppers using the same clipart from HERE





His number three birthday shirt was from THIS Etsy shop.  Last year we got him THIS number two shirt, and it was just so stinkin' cute we had to get one again this year.

Super Cute!! My son had a construction party for two of his birthdays - his 2nd and his 6th. It is a fun theme to work with. And boys are just so much fun, aren't they?
