This party was fun to plan. My 4 year old can tell you the difference between a back end loader and an excavator. So when I showed him these construction zone birthday party invitations he lit up and planning began! I contacted Minted.com and they agreed to help with some of the details, plus host a giveaway for $150 Minted Credit giveaway!
Construction Zone Birthday Party Ideas
I had the most fun planning the menu for our construction zone birthday party. We planned for the party to be earlier in the day but this breakfast menu would be good for lunch or dinner too.
Going along with the construction zone theme I created these fun themed breakfast sandwiches.
Here’s how to build a tractor tire sandwich:
- Tractor Tire – Bagel
- Caution Light – Eggs
- Pot Hole – Pancakes
- Tire Tracks – Bacon
- Oil – Syrup
- Construction Zone Cake
- Tar + Asphalt – Pudding and Crushed Oreos
- Caution Cone Punch
Everything bagels were used for the tractor tires. I’m sure other flavors would taste great too. We love making breakfast sandwiches with blueberry bagels too. The pancake pot holes were a fun touch.
The caution lights were made two ways. I knew my boys would not want over easy eggs so I made scrambled eggs and over easy eggs. Bacon is one of the birthday boy’s favorite foods so the bacon tire tracks were a must.
The punch was another big hit with the kiddo. He loves orange juice and I punched it up a little with limeade and ginger ale. The ratio was two prepared orange juice concentrate cans, 1 limeade concentrate (unprepared), and a 2 liter or ginger ale.
The cake made me the most nervous. My plan was to buy a chocolate cake from the grocery store bakery and top it with a few construction toys but once we got there little man told me he wanted me to make his birthday cake. So of course I did!
I used 1 chocolate cake mix made into two rounds and one container of chocolate frosting. Just make sure you use a serrated knife to cut the round top off of the cakes so they lay flat on each other. I stacked and frosted the cake then placed Oreos around the entire cake.
I grabbed two of our construction toys (cleaned them of course) then made a road out of crushed Oreos.

The entire party was planned around these construction zone birthday party invitations. We had a fun time going through all of the fun invitation ideas on Minted! Some of the invites even have matching banners, stickers, and confetti. Making the whole party planning process even easier.
When your ordering your birthday party invites don’t forget about the details. I always forget these things until the day of the party and then I’m rushing around buying last minutes details. Take care of these details early when you order your invites from Minted.com.
