Throwing a dinosaur party for your little terror is a lot of fun, and can be easy, too.

Here is our guide on how to have a roar-ing dinosaur party!

 

Scary Stationery

The first thing you will need is your invitations. You can either choose to get creative and make your own, or buy your invitations.

Our invitations can be fully personalised with all of your own wording, and are super easy to create. It's a great way to quickly cross another thing off your to-do list.

We have a wide range of different styles available, so why not take a look?

 

Dino Decorations

There are two different styles that you can choose when hosting your dinosaur party - cool and colourful, or natural.

Colourful shades, such as red, purple, and orange are perfect for younger kids, and will help create a bright party space that they will love.

For older kids that are obsessed with all things dino, we recommend a natural green theme that serves jungle vibes.

Easy ways to decorate are with helium balloons, plants, and lots of toy dinosaurs. Paper plates and cups to match your colour scheme will be the perfect finishing touch!

 

Fossilised Food

A dinosaur party is a great excuse for some awesome food. Here are some of our favourite ideas:

For a savoury snack, dinosaur claw shaped pizzas or sandwiches are ideal.

Don't forget to get creative with your food labels! Mini eggs or creme eggs can become dinosaur eggs, crisps will be dinosaur scales, and slices of watermelon make the perfect dinosaur spikes!

Vegetables will also become a lot more fun when labelled as 'herbivore treats!'.

 

Ancient Activities

Here are some of our favourite dinosaur games:

Dino Dig

Fill a sandpit with toy plastic dinosaurs, and have the kids search through there for the toys.

This one can get messy quickly, so you may want to do it outside!

Tricera-toss 

This game is so much fun, and fairly easy to make, too.

Simply draw or paint a large triceratops dinosaur, and then glue on paper cups for the horns.

Whoever can get the hoops onto the horns wins a point!

Party Hat Making

For kids that love to get creative, why not have a session of party hat making?

Dino Pinata

Kids will absolutely love a fun dinosaur pinata! Fill it up with lots of sweets and toy dinosaurs to complete.

 

Pre-historic Party Favours

Before your guests leave, you'll want to thank them for coming.

Party Bags

Traditional goodie bags are still an amazing favour. Fill up with dinosaur toys, such as a plastic dinosaur and a little puzzle, and a delicious slice of birthday cake.
