|Ideas for a John Deere Tractor Birthday Party Theme
Ideas for John Deere theme invitations, decorations, food, activities,
goody bags and party favors.
||John Deere Invitations
Print out party information on note cards or postcards with the
John Deere logo on the front and then wrap in a green bandana.
Ask guests to wear the bandana to the party.
Cow cards can be made easily by drawing black spots on white
note cards or by cutting out black circles from construction
paper and pasting to the note cards.
Here are some cute John Deere invitations we found online -

John Deere Party Decorations
The main colors for the John Deere party should be yellow and green with
black accents. Cover the party table in a green table cloth and
use yellow plates (wheels) with black cutlery. On the table place
hay bales or John Deere tractors and tie green, yellow and black helium
balloons to them. Or you can place bright yellow sunflowers in
mason jars (or glass vases) on the table and tie with a green bandana or
ribbon. Place black or green rocks, pebbles or marbles at the
bottom of the container that holds the flowers.
John Deere Hayride
- Take the birthday guests on a hayride. If you don't have access
to a trailer you can fill up the back section of a pickup or large wagon with hay.
Petting Zoo or Pony Rides are always fun
and a wonderful way for children to
experience animals up close.
Tractor Pictures -
If you have a John Deere tractor or know of someone who does take
pictures of the guests in the drivers seat. Print them out
before the party ends for them to take home as a favor or include them
in the thank you note.

Hay Bale Obstacle Course
- Set up a course in your backyard or the park using
hay bales and other items such as swing sets, trampolines, slides, hula
hoops, etc. Set up a course that goes over, under, around and
through the area. You can set up teams to compete against each
other or use a stop watch and time each of the party guests.
When they have run through it a few times you can change it by having
them run through it backwards, on their hands and knees or walking.
Needle in a Haystack
- You need a large container full of hay, Styrofoam peanuts, raffia
or shredded newspaper and something for the guests to find - the
"needle" - such as small toys, candies or John Deere stickers on yellow
paper. We do not recommend using a real needle or anything that is
sharp and pointy. Hide the items in the container and let the
party guest search for them. Give them a time limit and see how
many they can find.
