Epic Monster Truck Birthday Party Ideas

I’m still not quite sure why I did it to myself but, we had 18 children plus their parents over for a Monster Truck party to celebrate Elliott’s 4th Birthday. There were Monster Truck games, a Monster Truck cake and Monster Truck cookies galore! The rain held off but it was still wet.  I was a nervous wreck in the morning when it was continuously drizzling. But in the end, it all worked out brilliantly and were lucky we had a brand new covered deck to entertain.  The best indicator of it being a successful party was how much fun the kids were having and how much they LOVED the Monster Truck birthday party ideas I’d put together.

I found this Monster Truck party invitation on Vistaprint and it also came with matching stickers which I was able to use on the loot bags.

The Refuelling Station

When it comes to monster truck party ideas, you must have a refuelling station! It’s here that the Monster Truck’s fill up on coolant (aka. cordial), fuel up on delicious food and get a paint job (aka. designing Monster Truck cookies).  A simple chequered flag tablecloth and bunting bring the refuelling station to life.

The Paint Shop & Monster Truck Cookies

The paint shop where the Monster Truck designs really happen! I used a Monster Truck cookie cutter to transform the dough into these shapes. I figured it would be easier to buy pre-packaged icing from the grocery store in different colours, it was less messy too. For the monster truck cookies recipe, click here

The Monster Truck cookies were certainly a favourite at the party, plenty of awesome paint jobs came out of the paint shop. For those children who didn’t want to eat their design straight away, I supplied some little clear cellophane bags with ties so they could take their Monster Truck cookie creation home to enjoy.

Monster Truck Birthday Party Games

When it came to Monster Truck games, we put a bit of a twist on ‘Pin the Tail on the Donkey’and played ‘Pin the Tyre on the Monster Truck’ instead! I simply Googled an image of a Monster Truck, used Microsoft Paint to edit the image in order to ‘remove’ the back tyre, enlarged the image and had it printed out on a large piece of paper. I then used the missing tyre as the piece they had to try and stick on the board. This game was so much fun!

And what’s a party without Pass the Parcel! There were even wheel-shaped yo-yos as prizes!

The Monster Truck Cake!

What’s a Monster Truck party without the Monster Truck cake! There are so many fabulous Monster Truck cake ideas around, but I decided to make it easier on myself and so made a less intricate Monster Truck cake. Here are some of my easy Monster Truck Cake ideas:

  • I made the chocolate cake (out of a packet because I knew I couldn’t stuff it up) using a rectangular baking tin.
  • I iced the cake with chocolate icing and then formed a pathway down the middle with Smarties.
  • I filled the pathway and the edges of the cake with chocolate sprinkles and filled the top half of the cake with the smarties for a pop of colour.
  • I used choc honeycomb for the rocks that Grave Digger is standing upon.
  • I used an icing writing pen to write the happy birthday message.

And that’s it, no rolling fondant for me…this was super easy and Elliott was very impressed.

Time to unwrap the presents

All the kids couldn’t wait to give Elliott their present, they kept inching in closer and closer saying ‘open my present next!’ It was very cute and Elliott was very spoilt.

The Monster Truck Party Bag

Each child received a Monster Truck party bag full of loot. I didn’t want to stuff them full of lollies and instead made them very simple. Each party bag contained a mini-monster truck which I bought in a bulk pack at Kmart, a small packet of Smarties, a fun stamp and a Monster Jam sticker. It’s the simple things I find kids really enjoy, it doesn’t have to be big.

    Oh my goodness what a fab party. My three girls would love to adopt you. I completely fail in the birthday party department.

      Thanks Raychael! To be honest, work is really quiet at the moment. If I was working full-time like I have been, there’s no way this would have happened!

    What a great party Elliot had! Happy Birthday! Well done Eva! The cake looks awesome! x

    What a great party! My daughter’s 4th birthday is in January so I’m busy collecting ideas now. My biggest worry is how to keep the kids occupied! Not to mention all the siblings that tag along – who probably won’t be so interested in fairies…

      You know what Nadia, I was worried about the same thing but in the end, the kids kept themselves occupied and found things in the yard to play with and played with eachother! I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

    Kids parties are exhausting! I find them just so tiring. Though it’s all worthwhile when the kids are having fun. xx

    How exhausting are these little people parties?? But you did well mumma! Wowee great cake, great biscuits, great games – GREAT FUN! Your man would have had the best day. The work is all forgotten when you see that right?

    What an awesome party for the little cutie! That cake looks epic, Eva. Well done. I love the paint shop idea too. Very clever xx

    You did a great job! What a fab party- and I love the cookie decoration station! I’ve got both my girl’s birthday parties to throw next year- and because their birthdays are only 10 days apart it means back-to-back parties. I think I’ll be carrying a hip flask with me to cope ha ha. x

    I like easy, fun cakes like that. The kids think they are great, and they usually taste better too I reckon!
    Glad it was a great day for him. 🙂
