This is going to be a ‘dino’mite dinosaur party. What child does not love dinosaurs and using their imaginations? A dinosaur birthday party will excite all their imaginations and possibly increase their love towards their future aspiration of becoming a palaeontologist.
Make your own dinosaur party invitations by creating an egg card and write:
"Come to a prehistoric bash and
party with the dinosaurs!"
On the inside, paste a picture of a dinosaur with the birthday information. You can use all different dinosaurs and on the other side of the card you can write out some information about the particular type of dinosaur.
Dino Dig - Search and sift through the sand to find dinosaur bones. Use a sandbox or plastic pool and use sifters, and brushes to brush off the dirt. Also have magnifying glasses to look at the found bones.
Volcanic eruption - Make a volcano and have it explode! Use baking soda and vinegar to make the eruption. Supervision required so the eruption isn’t too large.
Egg Excitement - Play a relay race. 2 plus players per team. Run with a dino egg (water balloon) on a spoon. If you drop your egg you need to start again. The first team to get 4 eggs to safety wins the race.
Dino Foot Race - Pretend you are a dinosaur and have to race to safety. Have the racers wear dinosaur feet. There are different things you can wear for dinosaur feet… you can purchase dinosaur feet, another option would be to wear swimming flippers or make kleenex boxes into dinosaur feet. All options would make this a silly fun race.
Hopscotch - Make the hopscotch course with the shape of large dinosaur feet. Pre-cut the feet and spray paint them to look like dinosaur feet (use brown and gray) or you can draw them with sidewalk chalk on your driveway or sidewalk. Toss a rock or beanbag to see where to hop to. Hop along and pick up your tossed item and then hop back to the start.
Rock Painting - Find some local rocks and guests can paint them as a take home activity. You need to make sure the rocks are cleaned and completely dry before painting. Then you want to paint with a thin acrylic paint. If the rocks are going to stay inside you can be completed with the project and guests can take them home that very day. If the rocks are going to be outside in the elements you need to seal the rocks with a clean resin. This resin might be different depending on your natural outdoor elements. It will often need to dry for up to a week. This would then be fun to drop off at your guests homes along with a thank you note.
Dinosaur Painting - Your guests can try out their painting skills on either a stretched canvas with a dinosaur picture already on it, or painting a dinosaur sculpture. Both would be fun and would be able to go home with your guests.
Triceratoss or Dinosaur Ring Toss - Create a ring toss using the face of a triceratops. Toss the ring onto one of the dinosaur's three horns.
T-Rex Toss - Feed the T-rex by tossing as many bean bags as you can into its mouth.
