Dino-ROAR Party!

ROARRRR! Learn how to throw an awe-inspiring dinosaur themed party here!


You can create your own funny invites with a little help from photo shop!

Traditional dino invites.


Green streamers can be used to create the jungle theme hanging from doorways. Dinosaur prints can be made with black construction paper. 

There are many ways to make the Dinosaur theme your own. Printable leaves and dinosaur footprints are creative ways to make chair backs pop. Balloons and blow up dinosaurs can be centerpieces. 

Create your own activity section for the party! Set up little tables and chairs for the kids to play games. Secure foam dinosaur face cut outs to each chair. 


For dinosaur bingo print out cards with names and pictures of various dinosaurs and the kids can use different stones/rocks to cover up the squares they have. 

Build your own terrarium! This is a creative activity for your dino lovers. The kids all get their own clear, plastic bowl. Set up a table with fake grass, leaves, rocks, stones and plastic dinosaurs and party go-ers can have their own terrarium to take home. 

A fun party game is the Dino Dig! Set up different plastic sand boxes filled with sand. Give children "excavating tools" aka sand box toys and have them go to each sand box and try to find a specific hidden plastic dinosaur. Whoever finds the dinosaur first, wins! 

Glacier Excavating! 
Freeze small plastic dinosaurs in ice cubes and give each kid their own. They have to smash open the "glacier" to get their dinosaur prize!

Party Food:

An awesome way to incorporate the theme into a party table is to have one area labeled "Carnivores" and one area labeled "Herbivores." The Carnivore table will have snacks with meat like meatballs, dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets and meat sandwiches. The Herbivore area will have fruit and cups of ranch with celery and carrot sticks.

Dinosaur cupcakes can be created with chocolate cupcake mix and chocolate icing. Place tiny plastic dinosaurs on top!

Label your drink area Drinkasaurus!

Dinosaur fossil cookies: Make sugar cookies and use dinosaur plastic toy footprints to create the "fossil" look on each cookie.

Lava Cakes: Make your favorite chocolate cake recipe and use orange and red candy melts to create the lava on each cake.

Dino Bones: Cover a pretzel stick and two pieces of popcorn at each end with white chocolate to create the perfect dinosaur bones. 

Individual brownies are now Prehistoric Stones!

How awesome is this Stegosaurus Cake?!

ROAR! This cake is dino-mite!

Party Favors: 

Label bubbles "Dino Repellant" as a fun party favor for guests!

A Dinosar Party that RAWWRRS!!

Many kids at one point or another get dino-fever and become completely obsessed with these extinct animals. They love learning about all the different sizes and shapes that dinosaurs are found in along with their diets and habitats. Throw a birthday bash fit for an archaeologist with these tips.

If your planning on throwing a party with few guests you can make a personal habitat for each of them by using some dino-shaped chicken nuggets, a pretzel stick, and some baby spinach.

Dress each seat with a custom dinosaur tail if you are familiar with a sewing machine. This model is also great because the strap allows the guests to take the tail off their chair and wear it as a belt around the house.

This cake is great because it  doesn't have to be perfect. You can be sloppy when icing it because it's meant to look dirty and muddy. A dinosaur figure can be added to the top and you can even throw in some tree figurines.

This would be great for invitations or thank you cards.If you're using them as "Thank You"s you could even have a picture of the party goer's in the dinosaurs place to add a personal touch. Very creative and interactive.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to incorporate some fruit and vegetables onto the food table and this provides a perfect way to do that.

Make mini volcanoes by decorating donut-holes with some orange or red frosting. Also shown in this photo are sugar cookies with fossil footprints that you can create as well.
