My son LOVES fire trucks. I mean, he can't get enough! There is sheer excitement in his face when one passes us on the street with its lights flashing and sirens blaring! So, for his 4th birthday, we decided to pull out all the stops and throw him the birthday party of his 4 year old dreams - A Fire Truck Birthday Party!
For party activities, Smokey's Fire Engine came and toured the kids around the neighborhood with sirens blaring and lights flashing! The kids also did an obstacle course which we called a 'firefighter training course', in which they got to put out fire in a "burning building", toss hula hoops around a hydrant, and use a backpack with a water hose to spray down cups. There was also a fireman craft table, yummy fireman-themed food, and endless fun had by all!
Some of my favorite parts of his party were:
- the fireman on straw poles
- the fireman obstacle course
- the fondant cake by Les Pop Sweets with Maverick's name in the fire hose!
- the rides in a real fire truck around the neighborhood
- the flame-look balloons we used as table centerpieces
- The fondant cake topper with his name in the hose spelled out!
- The stuffed Datamation puppies we gave away as party favors
- the smile on Maverick's face as he thought he was a REAL firefighter!
