At first I thought we wouldn't have the space for a party of this sort, but it came out perfect, all the kids and parents had fun.

  • Party Favors

    I made my own decorations by drawing construction trucks on foam found at hardware stores. I painted signs on poster boards. Orange and black baloons, I used dump trucks as center pieces but I also used them to hold the chips. I printed my own invitations at Walgreens but I downloaded the theme. I found tool sets to pass out as prizes and found construction truck gift wrap at the Dollar Tree.

  • Activities / Games

    We played pin the tire on the dump truck. Clothespin game where we threw the clothes pins in different areas of the yard and the kids had to find as many as they could, Forman says and the number game where the kids get in a circle and have to start walking in a circle and whatever number I would call out they they would have to pair up in that number for example I say 3 and 3 kids had to pair up. Last one standing were out of the game.

  • Budget

    Really didn't have a budget, but I didn't spend much either since a lot of the party favors I made myself.

    I went into free coloring pages on the internet and printed this truck and took it to a pinata place and had them make it for me.
