Dinosaur Themed Party Ideas

A dinosaur birthday party is such a roaring success, it’s popular with kids and so much fun to prepare! No wonder Dinosaurs are one of the most exciting topics taught at school! Dinosaurs make a great birthday theme for all ages—but remember to tailor these dinosaur party ideas to suit the age of your child. Toddlers and younger kids up to five years old will probably prefer colourful dinosaurs that are less frightening, whereas older kids will want them to be as realistic as possible.


First off, check out these great Dinosaur birthday party packs and decorations with some really great items, including everything you’ll need to set the prehistoric scene and keep the kids from eating like barbaric cavemen.



Here are some themed drinks in keeping with the dinosaur party ideas. Make Volcano Punch by combining 3 quarts of pineapple juice and 2 x 6 ounce cans of frozen limeade concentrate in a punch bowl. When the kids are gathered around the table add 2 quarts of ginger ale to the punch bowl and a scoop of fruit sherbet to each glass for some extra fizz. DINOSAUR JUICE. This green colored Key Lime-Banana Smoothie from Betty Crocker can easily be renamed as Dinosaur Juice.


Make inexpensive caveman costumes for your guests to wear (no sewing required!). Just cut a hole in the center of a piece of faux fur or animal print fabric to fit a child’s head. Secure the costume in place with a rope belt tied around the child’s waist. Draw large dinosaur footprints in chalk on the pavement leading to your door. If you have a sand box, fill it with sand and lay out “dinosaur bones” on top and buried beneath. Later this can be an activity as your guests dig up the bones!




You could set up a game of ‘Dig for Bones’ with hidden dinosaurs in a sandpit that your little explorers have to find. For another fun party game, why not try this Dinosaur egg and spoon race? Kids could even have fun painting their dino eggs first and trying to do the race in their dino feet!
