Construction Party Ideas

Before I had a son, I had no idea how exciting watching a digger at work could be. When my son was little I used to sit with next to building sites while he took it all in! Over the last few years, we have been to more than one Construction Birthday Party, and I have always loved them.

I think Construction or building is a great kids birthday theme, especially for little boys and girls that love trucks, dirt, and tools. With a room full of their favorite things, the kids always have a blast.

For younger kids, I always print off some coloring pages for parties. I find it is always useful to have a quiet activity for kids that are a bit nervous on arrival. Their parents are always relieved to have something for them to do when they are not ready to join the large group.

This set of coloring pages will fit right in with party theme.
