As founder and event designer for Halfpint Design, my children's parties are my favorite events to plan. My son is obsessed with monster trucks and I knew we had to use it for his 5th birthday party theme. The kids played outside rotating between five different activity stations set up in the backyard with several stops to the "monster truck wash" misters to cool off and stay hydrated. They loved popping balloons, throwing balls, driving a remote controlled monster truck and racing toy cars! We drug them in to eat and they were all back outside to play! That was a good sign the activities were age appropriate and well laid out! The cake finally brought them back in and we enjoyed a little chocolate before sending everyone home with a bag full of monster truck goodies from the "winner's circle". I loved this party and had so much fun designing it. I hope you have fun perusing! You can find all the party details at http://halfpintpartydesign.com/monster-truck-birthday-party-smash/
