In August last year I had a construction party for my boy's 5th birthday. I shared all the photos with you and it is very popular on pinterest. I think what's really fun for a kids birthday is doing themed food. It's not always possible but with construction there were so many ideas.
So if you're after a theme for your child's birthday I highly recommend making these treats!
The savoury food. I put napkins and plates inside a tool box. The savoury food wasn't themed as much as the sweets.
Sweet food - all the construction theme sweets!
Nuts & Bolts Mix - I mixed together crispix, pretzels, nutrigrain and peanuts. I placed cupcake cases and a scoop so everyone could make their own individual serves. The digger toy helped theme the food even more. You could also serve chips etc in dump trucks.
Tyre Brownies - Make a tray of brownies are normal. Then use a cookie cutter to cut brownies into a circle. I then just used a sharp knife to cut holes in the middle. Iced in chocolate frosting and dipped into chocolate sprinkles to create muddy dirty truck tyres.
Boulders - Using Tim Tam Ball recipe I made these boulders rolled in milo and coconut.
Chocolate Tools - I had a plastic tray left over from a box of chocolate I got Julian for Father's Day one year. I kept it thinking it may come in handy and it did. However I melted it in the dishwasher.
Traffic Light Melon Balls - Using watermelon, rock melon & honey dew I made these traffic light sticks. I did have them stuck in a foam block but the balls started to slide down the sticks.
Stop Sign Jelly Slice - I use a octagon cookie cutter to cut the shapes. The shapes didnt turn out too well though. I think use white icing pen to write on STOP.
Barricade Jelly Cups - I used tall plastic shot glasses from reject shop. I think used white electrical tape. I printed and cut little signs out (see Printable's tab for download) and used caution washi tape to attach to lollipop sticks.
