We celebrated Kaisen’s second birthday a few days ago at home with some fun activities and his favorite food. The celebration was small because we’re still dealing with a pandemic. We still had a great time celebrating this huge milestone for Kaisen. The theme for the party was a last minute idea because I wasn’t sure what to do. He likes so many things and it was hard to narrow it down. I decided to go with this construction themed birthday party because I loved the decoration items from Target. The colors were vibrant and everything was affordable. If your child loves dump trucks, this construction themed birthday party is perfect for them!

The color scheme was inspired by the Spritz Transportation Party Collection from Target. Kaisen loves cars, trucks and building things so this theme was perfect for him. Even though we didn’t have family and friends over, I made sure that the birthday boy had an awesome day. The cake is from our local grocery store, Publix. It’s definitely a family favorite and popular with Floridians. I created the cake topper using my Cricut and glued it to a skewer. The mini traffic signs were purchased at Target but you can find similar ones here. I created the balloon garland using a strip like this one. It didn’t take a long time to put it together. Blow up the balloons the night before to save time before the party. I purchased the balloons from a local party store.
I created a fun coloring sheet for the boys that was perfect for the party. They enjoyed pointing out the construction items and using crayons to add some vibrant colors. Here’s a free coloring page that you can download for your kids. It can be used for a construction themed birthday party or fun learning activity. I found the utensils in the Bullseye’s Playground section at Target around Easter. It’s good to purchase items when they are going out of season. Never know when you’ll need them at a later time.
The boys wanted to visit our local playground to run around and get some fresh air. We enjoyed the nice weather since it’s normally hot in Florida. They had a great time on the swings and the slides. It was nice watching the boys play and laugh despite everything that’s going on in the world right now. This birthday celebration was perfect for my growing toddler.
Once we returned home, the boys played with their construction zone sensory bin. It was a simple DIY activity I created just for Kaisen’s birthday celebration. My only mistake was not putting an old blanket or plastic tablecloth under the sensory table. As a result, there was a huge mess on the floor. This activity got quite messy with artificial sand everywhere. The boys had a great time so that made me happy.
