Dinosaur Hunt Party
During the summer, nothing is more fun than encouraging children to play outside and have their own adventures. Since many children love dinosaurs, it isn't too surprising that little boys, and even girls, also love the idea of going on an adventure looking for dinosaurs. Setting up a fun, outdoor dinosaur adventure party is easy, especially with all the party supplies available for turning your own backyard into an outdoor excavation site today!
Outdoor Dinosaur Party Decorations
One of the most fun parts of preparing for a dinosaur birthday party is finding the right decorations. While there are a variety of different dinosaur themed paper table sets, like prehistoric plates and invitations, many parents don't know there are also a variety of different dinosaur party decorations perfect for an outdoor party. Kids love to see inflatable dinosaurs lurking around the yard, reinforcing the idea that they really are on a dinosaur adventure, as they look for dinosaur eggs and other fun dinosaur toys. Just have these inflatable dinosaurs set up throughout your backyard, or even guarding special presents or prizes!
You can also take advantage of trees and other items in your yard. It's very easy to hang dinosaur cut outs and streamers around different plants in your yard. Don't forget that you can also use treat filled decorations, like pinatas. Since you can find pinatas in just about any theme, these are perfect for most birthday parties. Little children will love pretending they are saving their friends from vicious dinosaurs, especially if they are rewarded with fun dinosaur toys or party favors!
Outdoor Dinosaur Party Games
If you are having a dinosaur adventure party in your backyard, makes sure to take advantage of your entire yard. Children love hunting for hidden treasures, especially dinosaur eggs. We usually go with prefilled eggs with little dinosaurs inside, or buy colored plastic eggs to fill with our fun treats. Looking for eggs isn't just reserved for Easter, when your party revolves around creatures known for laying eggs!
Of course, you can also find more traditional party games for kids that have a dinosaur theme. You can find just about any party game with this popular theme, including pin the tail on the donkey (or rather, pin the head on the dinosaur skeleton!)
Outdoor Dinosaur Party Food
If you are trying to have a dinosaur birthday party on a budget, don't forget that it's very easy to create your own birthday cake. Rather than going with a cake, however, consider making your own cupcakes. It's easy to find dinosaur themed cupcake wrappers and even cupcake picks that have a dinosaur theme. Our personal favorite, however, is making dinosaur shaped cupcakes with silicone dinosaur baking sheets. Dinosaur cakes encourage children to play with their food while helping you save money on one of the most expensive parts of the birthday.
While you are planning your party, also consider giving party favors that children can use even after your child's party. Rather than going with paper cups, consider purchasing reusable cups with a dinosaur theme. These plastic cups not only add to the dinosaur theme, but make less waste during the party, which can help the environment. With the proper planning, it is easy to create a dinosaur adventure party that kids will remember for years to come!
