A Fireman Birthday Party- at a Fire Station!

4 year old's fire truck birthday party, complete with a visti to the fire station!



My little guy just turned 4, so to celebrate we threw him a birthday party actually *at* our local fire station. He loved fire engines, fire trucks, firemen, fire hoses, fire hats, fire dogs.... you get the idea, so this was the perfect 4 year old birthday party idea.




Did you know they did this? 

And for free,  I might add:) Plus they give out hats and stickers, which just means I added bubbles and pinata candy and called it a day on favors. You can read more about how I feel about party favors here.

First we all met at the fire station, where the fire fighters put on a safety demonstration for the kids about fire safety, and their gear.

Next, the kids get to go outside and actually spray the water hose down the street.


fire station birthday party- kids get to spray the fire hoses!


Seriously, cutest thing ever!

Parents can try it too (with more pressure), and boy, that isn't easy, no wonder firemen are so ripped! Of course I tried it to show that girls can do it too, good role modeling for my daughters:)




Post fire station, we walked around the corner to a local park for snacks and playing.




The kids played on the play structure while grown ups talked and snacked (I bought Sofia cans of champagne  which are the most brilliant invention ever).

I made cupcakes (red velvet with cream cheese frosting) in fire truck liners, with little fire hats and fire dog toppers, super easy, and easy to transport with a Collapsible Cupcake and Cake Carrier cupcake carrier I have owned but not put to enough use:) My cupcake carrier is collapsible, so it doesn't take up too much space at home.I bought the kit of liners and toppers at HomeGoods, but it's similar to this one: Consruction Cupcake Kit

It was windy, and we forgot the lighter, so had a friend bring it, but no dice, no fire. He didn't seem to mind:)

Then time for a Firefighter Fire Engine Pinata(from Amazon, where all good things come from).

So cute! We also made a fire station party for my son when he turned 3 and he LOVED it. They didn't let the kids use the hose, but they did give all the kids rides in the fire engine!

Cutest birthday party ever! And I totally didn't know about the fire station hosting parties. That's awesome!
