The dinosaur party theme is a versatile theme that can work for you son or daughter. Girls can dig dinosaurs too! My son turned 6 and he couldn’t make up his mind on what he wanted but I was so glad he chose this theme over Star Wars mostly because I don’t care for commercialized themes. It’s just a personal preference not because there is anything wrong with them.
Anyways back to our Dinosaur party, it was a blast and the kids loved all the simple activities and dinosaur themed treats.
Kids Party Idea: Dinosaur Party
I always forget to snap a photo of the invites mostly because I am making the same day and trying to get them to his classmates before the end of the day. Basically, I used plastic eggs and I put an invite inside it. You can get creative and also put a plastic dino in it or a gummy dino.
This dinosaur cake made by my neighbor who has a cake making business, turned out amazing and delicious! It’s chocolate with caramel filling and fondant. I usually make their cakes but with such a large amount of people coming to the party I thought I’d focus on other things like the decor, activities, cleaning my house and what not.
The Party Favors
I had a really hard time deciding on this because there were so many options to go with. I really wanted to make them their own personal volcano but that didn’t happen. Then there was dinosaur soap with a toy dinosaur inside, but realistically that involved too much work for me. So this was the perfect gift for our little explorers. It’s practical so it can be used again by their parents for painting and cooking or the kids for pretend play. They used this favor at the party for our excavation hunt. They really got into it. It was a paint brush with a dinosaur sticker on it and a mini strainer kept together with ribbon.
Dinosaur eggs- grapes
Explorer rocks – White chocolate caramel popcorn
I found the perfect fabric to go with the colors of our party.
Dinosaur Landing – Pudding cups with oreo cookie crumbs and gummy dinosaurs on top.
Dinosaur Toe Nails- Cone shaped chips
Lava juice- I found mini juice bottle and covered them in fun paper that coordinated with our party colors.
Brontosaurus Mini Burgers – I baked mini burgers in a pan. Baking so much easier and faster than grilling.
I also had Dinosaur ice. I froze dinosaur gummies in an ice tray for their drinks.
