Prehistoric Dino Party Supplies Ultimate Party Kit

Save time with a party pack

If you're in a hurry, then we recommend this Ultimate Dinosaur Party Kit. It includes decorations, table settings, a T-Rex pinata plus contents, party favors with bags and even the invitations (full details below). Everything matches and you save a lot of time. Enough for up to 16 children (or to have a few spare for brothers and sisters who might show up unexpectedly!).

Poll: Birthday Boy or Birthday Girl

We know that lots of boys love dinosaurs. But lots of girls are fascinated with them too. Tiny the Pteranodon from Dinosaur Train is a particular favorite with young girls. And Alicia from the Diego TV Series is a dinosaur expert.

Is the party for a birthday boy or a birthday girl?

Dinosaur Balloons - Foil and Latex - with T-Rex and his Dino Friends

We love the shaped foil dinosaur balloons, very cool! You can give those to the birthday boy or girl as a gift and use them as a party decoration. And latex balloons are just so much fun. Throw a few balloons into a room and kids are having fun within seconds. They make great party favors too. Yep, dinosaur balloons, we like them :-).

Inflatables, Standees and Displays - Make a big impact

Right, let's turn that room or hall into a prehistoric environment! We have a big inflatable T-Rex which is always a hit with kids. Inflatable dinosaurs are a cheap and brilliant way to leave people in no doubt that this is a dinosaur party!

Make Dinosaur Party Decorations

We like to go for a mix of bought decorations and ones that we make.

How about making dinosaur footprints to put on the floor.

Right, let's get some dino decorations up.

Plan a Dino Dig Party Activity

With Dinosaur Fossils!

A Dino Dig is a very popular activity at a dinosaur party. The kids get to pretend to be paleontologists and uncover prehistoric dinosaur bones - can they identify the dinosaur they've found?

This classroom set makes for a wonderful, realistic dino dig:

There are 30 fossils to find and they can be assembled into a big T-Rex skeleton! The kit includes stakes and grid tape - just like a real paleontology excavation! The kit is reusable so you can use it after the party too.

Manufacturer's Description: "Uncover a fantastic learning activity for your students - one they will remember for years to come. This kit includes everything you need to create a realistic T. rex dig in your own school yard or sandbox. Junior paleontologists will LOVE excavating and piecing together, a huge, super-realistic Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton. Includes T. rex skeleton in 30 snap-together parts, rock-like base with 6 plant fossils, herbivorous dinosaur jawbone fragment, support rods, 8 trowels, 4 brushes, 16 stakes, 200 feet (60 m) of grid tape, 2 full-color posters, plus a 20-page guide with step-by-step directions, lesson plans, and reproducibles. Dig up some serious fun."

For a less impressive, but still fun option, you can do a dino dig with ordinary plastic dinosaurs. These dinosaur skeletons are even better! This set includes 12 dinosaur skeletons of various species.

If the weather is good enough then a dino dig outdoors in the sandbox. Depending on the number and age of the party guests and the size of your sandbox you may want to stage this activity so a few children at a time get to dig.

If the weather isn't good enough to be outside you could stage an indoor dino dig. If you've got the space and are happy to clear up then you could risk in indoor dino dig with sand. Otherwise packing peanuts could be an indoor substitute. The kids will still have fun.

A unique talking point for your party!
