Set up the scene for your little construction workers to eat lunch by handing out hard hats and using a yellow table cloth. More party inspiration from Love JK.
7. Workers invited
Of course no construction party is complete without a 'nailed it' themed invitation. You can get this one from Etsy maker ArcticParty.
8. Party games for little workers
The best thing about a construction party is the games! Think along the lines of sandpit digging fun, a building block construction station and tossing rope rings onto witches' hats. More party inspiration from Love JK.
9. Eating tools
At a construction birthday party, knives and forks are tools, not cutlery thank you very much. Simply wrap them in a serviette and place them in your toddler's toy dump truck for a cute serving idea.
