Modern Dinosaur Party Details:
This is what Chrissy said about the party- “My mini paleontologist has become quite the expert on all things dinosaur, so we were so excited to plan a modern take on these prehistoric creatures that he has grown to love. The idea for the party started when we found these wooden dinosaur puzzles in the dollar bin at Target. We then went online and found all of his favorite dinosaurs and began planning the party around dinosaur skeletons/fossils. We created a backdrop with fossils on it to match the wooden dinos and made fun little party hats for them to wear. Another project was to make little dinosaur planters that held succulents that we cut up and spray painted to match the party colors.
The main feature of the party was a dino dig, that included dinosaur skeletons, amber beads, gems and shells for the kids to keep in their excavation kits, which doubled as party favors. We also had a dinosaur egg hunt, and the kids got to roam the park searching for dino eggs filled with little plastic dinos, tattoos and rings. There was also dinosaur tails and masks for the kids to wear while they ran around on the park pretending to be dinosaurs.
For food, the carnivores had dino shaped chicken nuggets and sandwiches and the herbivores had fruit salad and sides. The desert table featured a cake with mud oozing down the side with realistic chocolate boulders on top. Other treats were chocolate pudding cups layered to look like the earth, dinosaur gummies, and therapod footprint cookies.
The kids looked like they were having a great time, and I had so much fun working on these crafts with my son. He said it was the best day of his life.”
I have always loved the look of those little rock candies, they just add such detail to these Dinosaur parties! See even more small details within these inspiring parties:
