Hardhats required at all times
Dump gifts into a wheelbarrow. Monthly photos of the birthday boy on a level measuring stick
Crew punch (orange Hawaiian punch) for the kiddos.
There was also a H2O jug for the crew to fill up their cone cups with.
Brown bag lunches for supervisors(adult lunches) and crew (kiddo lunches). Everything is easier with the right "tools."
Smash cake! Used a real tire for a cake stand and tin foil covered piece of wood to fill the hole like a hub cap. My mother-in-law went to a local tire dealer and asked for a tire that was going to be thrown out and got the tire for free. Free is always fun!
We had sweet selections for all the crew to choose from. "Wet Paint" Rice Krispies treats, chocolate "Wreaking balls," "Steal beam" candy sticks, "Spare tire" chocolate donuts and chocolate dirt cupcakes.
Pin the nail on the Hammer. Googled, Hammer coloring page to get the image. We created the nail stickers in WORD by using a thin oval shape with a thin triangle shape attached to it.
Blue print background were left over from a room addition that was done to my in-law's home.
Crew members of all skill levels had fun
Birthday Boy starting to enjoy his cake
Photo op station. Have each of your guests take a photo and use it as the thank you card
Take home construction kits for all the crew (included play-doh, chalk, a toy truck, bouncy ball, candy steal beam, truck erasers) Instead of "Thanks for coming" consider "Thank for all your hard work!" Thought of it after the tags were printed.
We had a blast at our local park on a wonderfully windy day!
