Davian’s Third Birthday Party – Die Cut Trucks

It’s a constant party here at the Thomas house! Davian turned 3 years old on Monday—holy cow…I have a 3-year-old. We celebrated his birthday over the weekend, and today I thought I’d share some highlights from the party along with a template to make these fun die cut trucks.

If there’s one thing you should know about Davian, it’s that he is a hard worker! Every day he wakes up and immediately heads to the “construction site” (aka our living room floor), and gets right to work. He gets out all of his construction vehicles, Hot Wheels trucks, and blocks, and begins construction work. And whenever a vehicle beaks down, he uses a tow truck to take it to the “repair shop” so that it can get fixed. It’s hard to even get this kid to take a lunch break, he’s so dedicated to his work. He’ll often tell me, “I can’t eat, I need to work at the construction site.”

So, when it came to choosing a theme for his birthday party, I just knew it had to be: trucks!

I decorated the tables to look like roads using black tablecloths and strips of yellow construction paper—easy peasy! I also decided to decorate the ceiling with balloons like last year. Davian loves balloons, and always gets really excited when he wakes up to see the living room decorated with them.

We continued the “truck” theme with some silly truck wafer cars (Isaac and I had fun getting creative with these—don’t judge us), as well as some stoplight brownies. I got the idea for these treats from Catch My Party and Handmade Charlotte.

And, of course, we had a fun cake as well! Davian loved the number 2 cake I made for him last year, so I did a number 3 this time around with some added “truck” elements to fit the theme and get him extra excited.

We also played games like “Construction Cone Ring Toss” and “Davian’s Repair Shop.” Davian’s Repair Shop is a Memory-style game I made up. I had a pegboard of repair shop tools that I arranged in a variety of ways and photographed (Davian liked helping with this part). During the party, we split everyone into teams and gave each of them 20 seconds to study the picture; then, they would try and arrange the tools the same way they were in the photo.

This picture doesn’t show any of the tools, but the kids also had fun hanging some of the construction cones from the pegs.

As a final touch, I made these die cut trucks and glued them to some paper straws. They made for fun and easy centerpieces, and Davian is still having a good time playing with them since the party.

There you have it—a fun “truck-themed” birthday party: perfect for a construction vehicle and tow truck-loving 3-year-old! If you have one of those in your family too, then I hope you found some fun ideas from this post, and can make good use out of these simple die cut trucks.
