How to hold a dinosaur party

All children love a party, and most children love dinosaurs. Hosting a dinosaur birthday party can be an unforgettable experience, and remembering that everything comes down to the planning and the activities on offer for the day makes for a successful, fun-filled party.

Dinosaur party games and ideas

Dinosaur inspired games Dinosaur party games are great fun for adults and children alike. Consider a Triceratops ring toss, making plaster of Paris fossils or building dinosaur puzzles. Adequate space must be available for kids dinosaur games such as a birthday piñata or a dinosaur dig game, which is an excellent educational tool regarding earth science and geography. Charting coordinates and learning the history of the earth while having fun will take the edge off what could be an essentially educational exercise.
Dinosaur accessories Dinosaur accessories are an important consideration. They don’t have to feature dinosaurs, but could consist of various archaeological tools such as brushes, child-friendly digging implements, binoculars and a scrapbook to record findings. A popular kid’s dinosaur game is the dinosaur safari, which involves packing a bag with the aforementioned items and going on a dinosaur hunting expedition, or dig.

They can also be put together by the party-goers to create a complete skeleton. Organise a competition to guess the dinosaur species, with the winner receiving a prize such as toy dinosaur, dinosaur book or puzzle.

Dinosaur party eats

Dinosaur cakes and treats Party cakes and decorations are an indispensible part of any children’s party, and a dinosaur party is no exception. A dinosaur cake, decorated with the host’s favourite dinosaur, is a crucial point to consider. The party can revolve around a particular dinosaur, or it can follow a general dinosaur theme. For example, the boys' party plates and decorations could feature a Tyrannosaurus Rex and for the girls, a Pterodactyl motif could be used. Birthday party bags can be of a mixed variety, with a surprise dinosaur toy or treat inside each bag. Dinosaur themed food
Dinosaur party decorations, dinosaur party ideas and dinosaur accessories are an important factor to consider, such as dinosaur themed jumping castles. Consider the perennial favourite, Barney the Dinosaur, a welcome addition to most kid’s parties, depending on the age group (Barney is only suitable for younger children). Birthday party plates and birthday party cakes featuring Barney are always popular and are readily available, but most party suppliers and many supermarkets stock a range of dinosaur-related party supplies. Examples of eats and treats can be T-Rex toasted sandwiches or Raptor rolls, with dinosaur jellies for dessert.
