Party Recap

We had a great time at the construction party. After "clocking" in for work, the kids got party hard hats with their names on them, work aprons and tool boxes. They then went to the "work bench" and painted their tool boxes. They had fun playing all kinds of construction games and doing construction crafts. The party area was even decorated with real construction barrels and caution tape! It was a blast!

    We had a construction banner made. We used caution tape all over the house to make it look like a work site. We printed up construction work signs. We also went to our local improvement district and borrow all kinds of construction cones and barriers. We attached balloons and signs to them. Very cool touch.
