Activities

Farmers for a Day

Supplies:

  • Bandanas
  • John Deere hats
  • Animal cookies (1 box per child)

Directions

As your guests arrive, transform all the kids into little farmers! Tie bandanas around their necks, and give them John Deere hats to wear. Hand them their "livestock," too (boxes of animal cookies)!

Tractor-Spotting

Take the kids on a tractor-spotting adventure. Be sure to look for potential locations ahead of time. You can even include a visit to a farm or petting zoo. Find out if the kids can go on a pony ride, learn how to milk a cow, feed chickens, gather eggs, etc.

Dude, Where's My Truck?

Supplies:

  • Assorted construction vehicle toys

Dump trucks, cement mixers and cranes, oh my! Before your construction crew arrives to the party, hide toy construction vehicles around the yard. To play the game, instruct each guest to search the site for the work trucks. Once the foreman has possession of all the vehicles, let your guest each keep a truck as his prize!

Blue Collar Boogie

Supplies:

  • Construction vests and helmets
  • Party music CD

Similar to the kid party favorite, freeze dance, this game will have your kids jumping and shaking from 9 to 5! Is your crew ready to play? Give them each a helmet and construction vest to wear. When the music starts, all the players dance (Pro-planner tip: Teach them themed dance moves like "axe the cement" or "the hose pose"). When the music stops, the dancers must freeze. Anyone caught moving after the music stops is out. Play continues until there is one person left who wins the game.
