Creative Dinosaur Birthday Party

My oldest just turned six and he is a living, breathing dinosaur. Well, at least he is 80% of the time. This little boy can tell you anything you want to know about a dinosaur..it is amazing!! I knew I had to give him a dinosaur birthday party, so I began browsing the internet for ideas and wanted to share with you what I have found. Other than purchasing some dinosaur decorations at the local party store, and having the party at a ceramic place that provided dinosaur ceramics to paint, we mostly had fun with the food. We threw in a few of his toys as decorations- cheap and easy!


I made all of the signs labeling the food out of index cards, stickers, colored paper, and printed the words on the computer. So simple and fun!

Herbivore Diet- We made little cups of celery and carrots and platters of fruit for the Herbivore Diet


Carnivore Diet- A platter of Pepperoni and Cheese completed this.


Pterodactyl Nests- Pretzel sticks and grapes in a cup. This was the BIGGEST hit, and were pretty much gone at the end of the party. 


Volcano Cupcakes- Though I am not a baker and I hired someone to make these they look relatively simple and if you have any culinary ability I am sure you could come up with similar. 


Dino Claws- A bowl of Bugle Chips makes for a great Dino Claw.

Dino Droppings- (My personal favorite) Chocolate Covered Raisins!

Dino Eggs- This could really be anything, whoppers candy- deviled eggs- I did peanuts. Whatever floats your boat and is remotely egg shaped.

Also, we did not get a picture but I used stamps that look like cave paintings on brown paper bags for the goodie bags to go with the theme. We had a ceramics painting party but I have also read about having children dig through sand boxes for fossils as part of a dinosaur party theme! We definitely would have done this if it were in my home.
