When Loopy turned three, I wanted an easy theme for decorations and play. The natural choice was construction trucks.
|Just stick your dirt cake in the back of a dump truck to make your boys drool even more!|
I decided to kill two birds with one stone by having our preschool unit for the month be about construction as well. I got a bunch of books from the library and even used those as decorations for the party; encouraging parents to read to their kiddos. I also grabbed some toys laying around the house that had a construction theme. I love not having to spend money!
Since Loopy can never get enough truck play, I set up this fun station with different trucks and play materials. (We eventually took the sand filled one outside, which we should have done from the get-go.) Loopy’s birthday present had a construction theme to it as well, so we just set that up and let the kids play.
We used this 5-Pack of CAT Mini Machine pretty much every day. Less than $6!
The snacks were super fun. With a little creativity and a lot of help from Pinterest, each snack had a more “constructiony” name.

|Crazy simple decoration. Just smash a corner and set the trucks up accordingly.|
|This of course was the refueling station.|
|Lots of orange going on.|
I got all of these free printable from birthdayexpress.com but the link is no longer working. I’m so sad! But just type some key words into Pinterest. There’s a wealth of material to choose from.
Boasting In Weakness: Welp, I already forgot about putting a little blurb at the end of every post. And this is the first one. Nice goin’ Smalls. Well, the first BIW I can think of is that I stink at potty training. I thought after a year we’d finally got it down. Today changed that…
Why tell you this? Because I’m not as good as this blog makes me look. In fact, I need a Rescuer, daily. Read more about the comparison game and why I want no part in it.
