Our 3yr old is obsessed with construction trucks, so I made him this Homemade Dump Truck Cake and then cut out dumptrucks from construction paper and attached them to sidewalk chalk buckets – added the bottom 1/3 of a paper lunchbag to the top of it and made them into goodie bags/buckets filled with treats. We also played ‘pin the backloader on the backhoe’ – that I drew onto Bristol Board and it played out just like pin the tail on the donkey.

Please feel free to share these ideas for other moms looking for more than just a dumptruck cake.
