Tool Birthday Party

My little guy turned 2 and boy did we celebrate.  He knew that this day was all for him and he enjoyed all of the attention.  He loves helping Daddy and Papa fix things with tools so we knew for sure the theme of this year's birthday.

Connor's fix it shop had a game for the kids to play.  I cut floral foam (any kind of styrofoam would work) into large pieces and the kids hammered golf tees into the foam.  They had a blast and my kids are still playing with them.  The hammers were from Lowes from the Build and Grow section of kids projects.  They are the perfect size for little ones.

  Each of the kids went home with a tool belt as a thank you for coming to celebrate Connor's birthday.  The tool belts were from Home Depot and I added the child's name and a picture to each one (iron transfer printer paper).  All of the boy got a hammer and nails picture and the girls got a frozen pic.  Each tool belt included a flashlight (free with coupon) and tape measure from Harbor Freight and a candy tool that I found on Amazon.com. All of the kids loved wearing them.

Here is the Birthday Boy wearing his tool belt and tool belt birthday shirt.  The shirt was embroidered by McKenna at Chevron and Dot.  It turned out so cute and he loved it.  I can't wait to order my daughter's shirt for her birthday.

I ordered a silverware caddy from Oriental Trading a while a go.  Now for each party I cover it with adhesive vinyl to coordinate with the theme.  The tool cut outs were from the Handyman Cricut cartridge.

The cake was made by Papa and it gave Connor a huge smile.  The cake is 3 layers and covered in fondant.  The sides of the cake are rice krispie treats covered in fondant.  Great job Papa!

Happy Birthday Connor!
