My son turned two this past weekend, so we hosted a construction themed party for all of his buddies and their parents. We decorated with black and yellow tissue tassels, balloons, coloring pages and a mountain backdrop. Food included a chocolate mudslide cake, tool box veggie tray, pretzel lumber, rock cookies, dirt cups, and a bacon jalapeno cheeseball mountain. The kids played with sensory tables full of trucks, rice and split peas, knocked down a demolition city made of boxes, and took pictures in our dump truck photo booth. It was a blast!
The book I'm Dirty by Kate and Jim McMullan inspired the party. It is my son's current favorite!
Fun and easy! My son helped with a lot of the decorations, so I wanted to make everything easy enough for him to be included. He glued all of the stripes for the road backdrop, crumpled brown paper for the mountain, and stacked the boxes.
I blogged all about the party on my blog: go ahead and snicker. There are recipes, more photos, and links there. http://jojobean26.blogspot.com/ The invitations will be available here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jojobeandesigns Trucks, party construction hats, and mini construction cones were found on Amazon.
The kids loved the sensory tables, which were admittedly a huge mess on the deck and required the leaf blower to clean up:) My favorite thing is the invitation set, since that was the first piece I made and it set the tone for the rest of the decor.
