Updated on April 30, 2012

Recommended for:

Ages: 4 - 8

From Jurassic park to Land Before Time Dinosaurs are a fun and educational topic that kids and grown ups alike enjoy. If your budding paleontologist wants a Dino-mite birthday party here are some tips to make it happen. With these tips you can transport your little guests back thousands of years to before humans walked the earth and the world was ruled by giant reptiles.


Invitations

  • Dino Egg invitations. Cut out an egg shaped piece of paper, then cut it horizontally across in a jagged fashion so it looks like a cracking egg. With a brad attach the two halves together on one edge. then glue a dinosaur cut out onto the back of the bottom egg so when the egg is opened it is peaking out. Write all the party details on the back of the egg.
  • Print post cards that have a photo of a dinosaur with the words “(child's name)’s Dino Museum across it. Put the part info on the back and mail them to guests.

Decorations

  • Draw giant chalk dinosaur prints that lead up the driveway to the front door.
  • Tape card stock prints of dinosaurs and hang pterodactyl ones from the ceiling.
  • Place large inflatable dinosaurs that can be found at a party supply store around the room.
  • Hang green vines (streamers) around the room.
  • Bring either potted plants or fake palm trees in to the party room.

Games

Hot Lava Tug-a-war

  • You'll need a long rope and red blanket or towel. Lay down the red blanket or towel on the ground to be the lava and divide all the guests into two teams. Have them play a traditional game of tug of war but the first team to fall in the lava looses

Extinct Dinosaurs

  • If you have heard of sardines this game will sound very familiar because that it exactly what it is but with a dinosaur inspired name. Someone is chosen to be the extinct dinosaur (or IT), that person hides and everyone else tries to find them. When they do the "go extinct" and join the person hiding until everyone has gone extinct

Dino egg hunt

  • Fill a bunch of plastic easter eggs with small treats like hard candies and plastic dinosaurs and hide them around the house or yard. From there it works just like an easter egg hunt.

Fossil Finders

  • At Amazon and Barns and Noble their are kits that can be purchased that have "Dino bones" encapsulated in dirt and sand. Buy a few of the kits and have the children work together to dig the bones out with pain brushes and plastic butter knives. When they are finished help them to put the bones they have found together so that they can build a dinosaur skeleton.

Food

  • Dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets
  • Herbivore Salad
  • Red punch as Lava Juice
  • Hard boil eggs and let them cool. Then gently crack the shell all over but don't remove it. Then dye the eggs with kool-aid mix or food coloring. When finished remove the shell and the egg will have a crackle effect.

Favors

  • Toy dinosaurs
  • Dinosaur trading cards
  • Dinosaur shaped fruit snacks
