Dinosaur Party Supplies!
Dinosaur birthday parties are being dug up for everyone's special day! Dinosaur party supplies, tips and games for you to use when planning a Dinosaur Birthday party!
Use one our online Dino pictures to print out, let you little dinosaur lover color it in and mail. If you are going to be hand-delivering the invitations, you may want to include a plastic egg with a tiny plastic dinosaur (or gummy dinosaur) inside.
Attach a Plastic Bone to an invite with curling ribbon. The invite could say, “No Bones About It…Mark digs dinosaurs!”
Dino-Bone Hunt: Use a bone-shaped dog biscuit (maybe tie some ribbon to it) and hide them in the yard for the kids to find. Or, have the children cut out bone-shapes from construction paper and hide them inside the house for an indoor hunt.
Dinosaur Scavenger Hunt: Gather a Dinosaur Egg (Plastic Easter Egg) filled with a Growing Dinosaur and a long piece of yarn for each child at the party. Tie a piece of yarn to each filled egg, and hide the eggs all around the prehistoric land, winding the string under, over and around trees and bushes (furniture if you are inside). Each child is given the end of a string, and must follow it to find the hidden dinosaur treasure. If you don’t have the space needed for this activity, then just hide the eggs and let the kids find them.
Fossil Hunt: If you have a sandbox, hide tiny dinosaurs in the sand and give them scoops to go digging for fossils, making sure everyone gets at least one. Or you can use a small wading pool filled with sand.
Musical Hats: Play this game using the same concept as the classic game of musical chairs…one less hat than there are children for each round. Place a pile of Pith Helmets on a table that the kids must walk around while the music is playing. When the music is turned off, the kids must scramble to put on a hat. The child without a hat must leave the game, and the game continues with one less hat until there is one child remaining – the winner.
Dino Roar Contest: Host your very own Dinosaur Roaring contest, where everyone is a winner. Each carnivore or herbivore gets to give his or her best roar, and then you can award prizes for loudest, saddest, most real, squeakiest, funniest, etc.
Pin the Horn on the Triceratops: Draw or print out a large picture of a Triceratops without its horn. Make a lot of horns out of colored construction paper and play this familiar game (using tape instead of pins). Only blindfold kids who are old enough to understand and not be afraid.
Cave Painting: Create your own prehistoric cave mural! Hang a wide roll of off-white or brown butcher paper on a wall, or spread it on a smooth floor surface. Provide paints, markers, crayons, stamps, etc. for your cave kids to use while creating their cave paintings. Lay out books and magazines with dinosaur pictures to give your guests extra ideas. Hang the mural up when the kids are finished to add special decoration to your Dinosaur party. This is a good activity for the beginning of the party to break the ice, and to provide the children with something to do until everyone arrives.
Catch the Dinosaur’s Tail: Direct everyone to form a single-file line, and hold onto the waist of the person in front of them. The first person in line is the head of the dinosaur, and the last person is the tail. When the game begins, the head tries to catch the tail. If the head successfully catches the tail, he or she stays at the back of the line and become the new tail. The chase continues!
Dino Egg Ice Cream - A day or two before the party, scoop ice cream and roll scoops in colorful sprinkles (our grocery store baking aisle even has dinosaur sprinkles!), put in cupcake papers and refreeze. Stegosaurus Cake (or check out our link below for Cake Decorating Ideas!), or an Egg-shaped Cake - cut so that egg appears to be opening and have a plastic dino coming out of it.
Jungle Juice - It may be green but it still tastes great! Pour lemon-lime soda into a large punch bowl. Just before serving it, add scoops of lime sherbet and watch the punch bubble as it turns into green jungle juice.
Print out copies of a dinosaur foot on using heavy paper and have them lead up the sidewalk to the door. Hang green crepe paper streamers all around to look like you're in the jungle (you can also purchase plastic palm trees, or tree wall pictures). Decorate the tables with plastic dinosaurs and eggs and the walls with pictures of all types of dinosaurs.
Dinosaur stickers, puzzles, removable tattoos and magnets are all popular items. Put the items in a small bucket with shovel to commemorate their "excavating excursion". There are some great Dinosaur Shrinky Dinks, plastic favors and Insect Gliders too at Birthday Express.com
