If your little one is anything like the ones we know, he’ll go through a dinosaur phase at some point. Luckily, we’ve got the perfect invites and accessories for a dino-tastic birthday bash. Start the theme off right with these adorable invitations from designer Eden Flora.
Lead the way to the main event by placing these dinosaur footprints on the sidewalk and inside. Dinosaur decor is super fun and can range from these more “natural” looking mini skeletons to scatter around (guests can take them home after), to these brighter, more colorful centerpieces.
Activities for a dinosaur party can vary according to age. Older kids might like the idea of excavating their own dinosaur fossils. Or, for a more group-oriented “dig,” we love the idea of filling a kiddie pool with sand and setting the little ones loose with paintbrushes to unearth the “bones.” Smaller hands might like the idea of a dinosaur egg hunt. Simply speckle Easter eggs with paint to make them look like dinosaur eggs, and fill them with treats of your choice.
The sky’s the limit for creative food ideas. We love these dinosaur egg cake pops. We’ve also seen fruit skewers with grapes and berries for dinosaur egg sticks. For something savory, how about shaping dinosaur bread bones? Cut out sugar cookies are a no-brainer with these cookie cutters. (These also make great party favors when packaged with Play-Doh in cute bags.) Another thing we’d suggest? Cupcakes instead of a larger cake – top them with personalized Eden Flora stickers stuck onto toothpicks and backed with felt for a custom topper that guests can take home.
Whatever you decide to put into goodie bags (we love a mix of these mini-dinos and maybe some Jordan almond dinosaur “eggs”), make sure to slip in a dinosaur calling card so guests will have a reminder of the big day.
