Bob the Builder is quite the star at our house. My son identified different types of machinery for months and can tell me how to build a parking garage. He informed us repeatedly of how he's going to drive this or that when he gets bigger.
Obviously, a construction themed third birthday party seemed perfect. But I didn't want to do a party-in-a-box, so I searched some great blogs and found inspiration.
If you have a little one who is interested in construction, Handy Manny, or Bob the Builder check out these blogs for ideas.

From Juicy Bits: Renting a construction vehicle and offering rides is better than Disney World at this age. The sandbox stations capture most kids' desire to "dig in."
The Smiths: From the extension cord wreath to the pool house transformation into a work trailer, this party is punctuated with little sparks of personality. Maybe it's having a three-year-old and appreciating potty humor, but the the Port a Potty cracked me up, too.
Pure Joy Events: How cool is this box tractor?
Cake (formerly Birthday girl): This blogger's inspiration boards are imagination candy for sure!
My Insanity: Brownies are my favorite food, and I love how they were incorporated in this party. Also, I ADORE the lunch boxes, but wouldn't spray paint anything due to the pregnancy, and I couldn't find it in myself to pester my hubby to do it for me.
The Hip Hostess: Check out the Home Depot tool belts! I couldn't believe how friendly the store was when I went in and tried to buy some kid-sized tool belts. They gave them to me. That night, my son told me it was his "faaaaaaaavorite" part. The next morning he wanted to wear it again.
Oriental Trading: Look at these great hard hats. If your little construction worker prefers pink apparel to yellow, no problem!
