Bob the Builder Party Invitations

To make homemade Bob the Builder party invitations, get dark blue and bright yellow construction paper. Sketch out a big construction hat silhouette onto the yellow paper and then mount it onto a square piece of the dark blue construction paper, acting like a border. Or cut out a silhouette of Muck the Dump Truck or your favorite Bob the Builder helper. On the invitation make sure to include: “Is ____ really turning ____ years old? Yes he is!.
