First, I decorated the outside of our home to look like a construction site. I begged my baby brother to sit outside and pretend like he was sleeping on the job. When guests arrived he ushered them in and directed them to sign in with the "site supervisor". That was a huge hit. Side note....I asked him recently if he would pretend to be a sailor for my other son's first birthday....lets just say he is a little concerned he is playing out the Village People on my front porch (his girlfriend and I think it's hilarious). Love you bro.
Second, I made out of cardboard boxes a fleet of Construction Trucks for the kids to run around in. The more I did the better I got and although I could have gone overboard on these I didn't bother knowing they were going to get pretty beat up (and they did!!). Fun right?! The basic directions for these I got from http://www.parenting.com/
Construction sign, construction tape, kids plastic hard hats and birthday boy construction vest from BuyCostumes.com
Mini Pylons and stick reflectors
Check in tomorrow for more on this party.
