Dinosaur birthday party tends to be an excellent choice for kids birthday party and planning for the party is indeed not a difficult task. Some of the aspects which require further considerations include the party invitation, party decoration, food, as well as the activities and games.
If your child loves dinosaurs, a dinosaur-themed birthday party can be exciting to create. In addition to dinosaurs, items shaped like bones, eggs or dinosaur tracks go well with the theme. You can make child-pleasing invitations, decorations, food, cake and games for the party without spending a lot of money.
For the invitation, you may cut dinosaur footprints or bones out of construction paper to create simple invitations for your party. For a more creative invitation, cut a piece of card stock paper into an oval, and cut an oval of the same size out of a piece of white construction paper. Cut the white oval in half, making the edges jagged to look like a broken egg. Glue the top and bottom edges of the egg to the card stock so they can be opened. Draw or glue a picture of a dinosaur inside, along with the party information.
Decorating the walls with a dinosaur theme will really set the tone for the space. If you’re artistic, you can paint the dinosaurs yourself, but you can also create great effects using decals. One style makes it appear as though the dinosaur is tearing through the walls. It’s scary, but many kids like it. Another way to do a dinosaur theme room is to create a jungle scene on the walls and place dinosaurs in it. If you don’t want to go full out, you can use a border that features dinosaurs along the top of the wall.
Piñatas, colourful, paper Mache shapes covered in tissue paper, contain toys and candy. Party hosts can fill an empty piñata with small plastic dinosaurs, dinosaur-shaped candy and dinosaur fruit snacks. Tape the hole closed before hanging the piñata. They hang from a sturdy hook in the ceiling or from a tree branch. A blindfolded child spins around so he is disoriented and tries to break the piñata with a bat or stick. Depending on the guests, each child can have one try or several. Children take turns until the piñata breaks.
Bake a cake in a dinosaur-shaped pan or bake it in two 8- or 9-inch cake pans, cutting one of the cakes in half for the neck and tail. Cut the cake halves around the outer edge, one inch toward the middle of the cake, to create two 1-inch wide C shapes. Trim one of the C shapes to three-fourths of its length for the neck, and cut the other in half widthways for the tail. Cut out a 1-inch wide wedge from the whole cake. Widen the cut area to a rounded U-shape at the tip near the centre of the cake. This portion is the body, with the cut-out portion the space between the dinosaur’s front and back legs. Place the neck on one side of the body and the tail on the opposite on a large cake board. Cover the cake with green or brown frosting.
For a fun dinosaur-themed game, have a fossil dig in a sandbox. Bury small toys in the sand, and let the kids find them by digging with toy shovels. Play a dinosaur trivia game by asking children questions about dinosaurs and giving prizes to those answering correctly.
