Dinosaur Birthday Party Theme

All cake decorations are edible

It’s always so much fun for me to attend my grandchildren birthday parties, and be amazed by the creativity of their parents, as well as the delight and amazement on the faces of the little ones.

This time it was one of my grandson’s 3rd Birthday Party, so I will dazzle you with numerous pictures, and few words, to display the fun and creativity.

Those of you who prepare fun parties for your kids, already know how much work and planning it takes to pull it off successfully.

Some super interesting dinosaur books, with interesting 3-D pop-ups, giant coloring books, and durable hard pages of very colorful dinosaurs.

I have yet to pass the dinosaur name test this witty three-year old imposes on me, every time he shows me his books.  He does no let me get way with naming them incorrectly…he corrects me right on the spot.

Here is one of the fun activity centers the children took part of.

The basket in the middle was full of cut-out dinosaurs.  There was also plenty of crayons set out, for each child to color the dinosaur they selected.  Once done, they had to find the matching dinosaur silhouette on the large wall banner, and glue their dinosaur over it, as you can see the finished product on the right.

This was one of the outdoor activities, for the little dinosaur anthropologists.  There were several dinosaurs buried in the two sandboxes, and they had to use cups, shovels, and digger trucks to excavate these creatures to pull them out.

They had lots of fun with this activity, and were able to keep their dino treasures.

Another challenging activity was to extract a trapped dinosaurs, but this time in a “rock” (toy dinosaur frozen inside an ice cube), using a plastic hammer. They worked feverishly for quite a while, since it was a challenging task for little hands to chip away pieces of “rock” with the type of tool they had to their disposition.  They all completed it with great success.

The challenge for the mom was to find enough plastic hammers to accommodate all participants…even the Dollar Stores ran out of them…. go figure.

Dinosaur Egg HuntsThe fun part about egg hunt is to check out the treasure inside the egg....Dinosaur egg hunt - 2

Dinosaur Egg hunt was yet another outdoor activity to burn off some energy…you know these little guys have lots of it…

They were outfitted with a dinosaur mask, used over their face or as a hat, a bright-colored plastic pail, and a shovel to use for very careful recovery of discovered eggs.

Thia activity turned out to be lots of fun and anticipation…as planned.  The most fun of all was to crack open the collected eggs, to discover the treasure inside….toy dinosaurs of course.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and might be able to use some of these ideas for your next party.

Please share your party ideas with our readers.  Thank you.
