If you have a child who just loves dinosaurs, giving them a dinosaur themed birthday party will really make their day.In this article, we learn how to plan a dinosaur birthday party.
Decorations and food
Begin by sending out dinosaur invitations. You can purchase these or make them up yourself. A simple way of making invites is to design them on the computer, adding in text and dinosaur graphics and printing off two to an A4 page or on card. Decorations Next, decide on your party decorations. Use banners, pictures, posters and balloons to decorate the room. Give yourself time to buy these and put them up at home. Don't forget paper plates, tablecloth and cups for the birthday food. You should be able to get dinosaur themed party plates at your supermarket. Food Plan ahead what food you are going to have. You might be able to get a dinosaur cake but give yourself time to cook up other things with a dinosaur theme. You can make dinosaur cookies in the shape of a footprint. How about chocolate eggs that you can pretend are dinosaur eggs? Sandwiches and pizza can be cut into shapes and you can make dinosaur claws out of chicken nuggets in a pool of tomato ketchup blood. Depending on the amount of cooking you need to do, plan to give yourself a good amount of preparation time.
Games and birthday bags
If you are near a beach, you can take the kids down to look for fossils. Museums are also good for looking at skeletons if you want to take them on a day out. You could have a treasure hunt in the garden using dinosaur footprints that you have cut out of card. Prizes Attach them to trees or garden furniture with a clue to the next footprint. For prizes, you can give small dinosaurs or dig the dinosaur bones games. Add prizes to your list of what to get from the shops and get it all in one go. Birthday pinatas can be bought in dinosaur shapes for a great game. If making yourself, you will have to start preparing it about two weeks in advance. Decide on what games you will play with the kids in advance and make sure you have all the supplies. Party bags Finally, don't remember the party bags. You can buy sweets and small gifts to put in them but you can also download dinosaur puzzles and colouring pages off the internet. Have a look while you are printing off invitations and you'll have everything organised in no time.
