Last weekend, we celebrated my son’s 3rd birthday party! He’s absolutely obsessed with all things tool/tractor/construction related, so we had no choice but to do a construction birthday party. Here are some pics from our fun little party with links to where I bought everything. I make party items and sell them in my shop (www.scriptivapaper.etsy.com) so if you’re interested in having me help with a party like this for you contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d love to help!
Get ready, because you’re about to discover how much I love Amazon.
The Caution Party tape can be purchased at amazon here: Caution Party Tape Party Accessory (1 count) (1/Pkg)
The hard hats can be purchased online at Amazon here: Dazzling Toys Soft Plastic Construction Helmets Hat – 12 Hats Per Order
The Construction Cones are available here: Dazzling Toys Pack of 6 7 Inch Orange Plastic Traffic Cones
And the green faux grass rug was also purchased on Amazon: GREENSCAPES 209107 Grass Rug, 4 by 6-Feet
The construction signs on the windows were purchased on Amazon too. I’m sure you are already see how much I love Amazon. Here’s the link to the construction signs: Construction Sign Cutouts Party Accessory (1 count) (4/Pkg)
These picnic tables are fantastic! I found them on Amazon here: White foldable Children’s Picnic Table 600 lbs plastic compact durable
I can’t even describe how much I love these tables. There is no assembly required, and they are foldable so that you can fold and store them easily. They are lightweight and easy to carry and have held up well in the rain so far. Easy to clean too. I bought one and loved it so much I bought another! Good thing I did because we needed two of them to have enough seats for all the kids to sit and eat. And I can store them or even just keep them on our back patio to use year round. And I can of course use them for many future parties to come! I highly recommend these.
These ADORABLE construction cone cups are available here: 8 Construction Party Cone Plastic Reusable Cups with Straws – Party Cups
These cups add such a CUTE touch and the kids can take them home as part of their construction birthday party favors, too.

The Green Grass Tissue Placemat seen here below the dump truck can be found here: Beistle 57161 Packaged Tissue Grass Mats, 15″ x 30″, 2 Per Package (Green)
I found old paint cans we had lying around the garage and took the paper wrap off and then wrapped the paint cans in grosgrain Construction zone ribbon, purchased here. And then I made little stickers with Eli’s picture at one year, two years, and three years to go on each paint can. I can make stickers like these for you too if you want some. Contact me for information: firstname.lastname@example.org. For the “Wet Paint” Rice Krispy Treats, I just made some homemade icing using Betty Crocker’s recipe here. I stuck a Popsicle stick inside the Rice Krispy treat and dipped it in the icing and allowed to dry overnight. Super easy and so adorable!

How awesome is this Saw Knife?! Eli was so pumped to get to use it! Here’s where it can be found: Fred TABLE SAW Crosscut Cake and Salad Saw
I purchased these Hammer Balloons through Amazon here: (12) Neon Hammer Inflates 14″
The inflatable hammers were hard to blow up but they were super cute and a big hit with the kids!
Here’s a fun construction birthday party game idea! Buy some styrofoam from the craft section at Walmart. Wrap it in Wood Patterned Contact Paper. Then get some Silver Golf Tees for pretend nails, and let the kids hammer the “nails” into the “wood”. This was very popular!
And, last but not least, here was the invite I made for the party:
