Construction Party Printables
I like to keep party costs in check and let’s face it, we only have so much time. I like to focus my limited DIY time on printable the construction party decorations – banners, signs and construction hat stickers.
Why choose printable construction party decorations?
- This construction party theme has a more modern, unique look than most store-bought decorations.
- DIY printables are generally cheaper which helps keep your construction party budget in check.
- It’s fun to make some handmade construction party decorations for your kids 😀
Construction party printables to make at home:
- Printable construction banner – Construction Cones happy birthday banner
- Stickers for construction hat favors (you can also re-use the design as cupcake toppers)
- Construction birthday party t-shirt with name and age
- Printable construction signs (coming soon!)
- Construction party invitation (to print and/or email)
- Construction thank you card
How to print construction party printables: I print my printables at home on my color ink jet printer. Be sure to set your printer to “High quality” before printing. Even better is laser printing if you have one or decide to splurge at FedEx office. I recommend this high-quality white cardstock paper and these good paper scissors to cut everything out. You can use this mini hole punch to punch cute holes in the banner and string it up using orange baker’s twine.
Construction Party Supplies to Buy
Here are construction birthday party supplies that I recommend buying for your construction party.
- Caution tape and construction balloons
- Construction cone reusable plastic cups
- Paper tableware set – yellow and black plates and napkins
- Party craft activity: Design your own construction site stickers and backgrounds
- Party favors: kid construction hats (pack of 12) and 2″ round ink-jet labels (to make personalized construction hat favors)
- Mini construction toy trucks and ingredients for the easy construction cake
- Plain gray cotton t-shirt to make the DIY construction iron-on birthday t-shirt
Happy birthday banners set the overall party tone. Here’s the modern construction cone happy birthday banner. The best part is that you can download it, type to customize it yourself, and print it at home. There are two sizes t- print one or both.
Turn party guests into construction workers with these personalized construction party hats. They’re inexpensive, make great construction party favors, and look super cute in party photos. Buy these child-sized construction hats (12 per pack) and add these personalized printable stickers that you can personalize and print at home. These hats won’t last forever but I tell you, the kids at the party loved them and Liam used his for dress-up for a long time.
This modern printable construction birthday invitation also comes with a digital JPEG version to email. This invitation sets the construction theme tone for as more modern and contemporary than the typical construction party invitation.
Oh yeah, those the cute personalized printables on the construction hats? Just use the same downloadable file to make cupcake toppers or personalize favor bags.
Nothing is cuter than a little boy in a personalized birthday t-shirt. This easy DIY project takes less than an hour and will make your birthday photos shine. I made this construction birthday t-shirt on my ink-jet printer using iron-on paper and a blank gray t-shirt.
Get the candles ready! There are lots of cute construction cakes out there and many of them incorporate real toy mini construction trucks. I recommend these mini construction toy trucks that come five in a pack. You can use these cuties on top of the construction birthday cake like I did or as awesome party favors.
I also really like these construction cone plastic reusable cups. It’s a nice to have but party guests thought they were really cool and took them home as favors.
This is one of those items that I bought and I’m really glad that I did. It’s a stack of blank construction scenes, and it’s a really great construction birthday party activity. Kids liked this better than the free construction coloring pages that I printed out.
Liam had a blast at his construction birthday party, and he even let his sister help him blow out the candles.
