Here are childrens birthday party games and ideas for a Dinosaur themed birthday party.
Dinosaur birthday party is a very popular theme, and for good reason.
Can you think of any child who is not fascinated by dinosaurs?
If you cannot find pre-made dinosaur birthday invitations, you can easily create them yourself on the computer with clip art and a word processing program.
In addition to clip art images, the
invitations can say -
"No bones about it - child's name - is turning - child's age - !
There are many creative options when it comes to decorations for your dinosaur childrens birthday party.
Turn your party area into a dinosaur habitat by attaching paper cut outs of dinosaur footprints to the floor, placing fake plants, rocks, and inflatable dinosaurs around the room, and hanging a picture of a volcano on the wall.
You can also use helium-filled green, orange, and purple balloons
to create the illusion of a jungle or other wild habitat and hang origami birds from the ceiling.For a table centerpiece,
find a very large, smooth, light-colored rock and place it in the center of the table with a sign that says
Dinosaur birthday party lends itselves very well to fun and educational games, especially childrens birthday party games that can take place outdoors.
Scary Dinosaur Birthday Party Games for a Fun Dinosaur Birthday Party
For this game, you will need a large sandbox or inflatable or plastic children's pool, enough sand to cover the bottom of the sandbox or pool and bury small objects, small plastic buckets and shovels, paintbrushes, brightly colored plastic toy dinosaurs, and small plastic dinosaur skeletons.
You can also make fossils and dinosaur bones and teeth with salt dough beforehand. In preparation for the game, give each child a bucket, a shovel, and a paintbrush.
Tell them they are going to pretend they are archaeologists on a dinosaur dig, and their goal is to dig for dinosaurs and fossils in the sand.
Demonstrate how archaeologists use their shovels to carefully search for dinosaur bones, and how they use their paintbrushes to carefully dust off extra sand.
In addition to being a great centerpiece, a large inflatable dinosaur - at least two feet tall - can be used for a dinosaur ring toss game. Have the children line up in a single file line about 15 feet away from the dinosaur, and give the first child in line 3 to five game rings.
Make sure the game rings are large enough to fit over the dinosaur's head beforehand. Each child will get a chance to try to get all of the rings over the dinosaur's head. Those who do receive a small prize.
Have a go at this chidrens party game version of an Easter egg hunt, but without real eggs. You will need enough small buckets so each child receives one, a large number of colorful plastic eggs that can be opened up at the center, and small dinosaur stickers.
Before the party, scatter the eggs around the area where the children will be looking. Some of these eggs can be easy to find, but it might be fun to put some of the eggs in places that are a little harder to see.
To start the game, bring the children to the area where the eggs have been hidden and give them each a bucket. When you say, "go!" every child will be able to find as many eggs as they can, and put them in their bucket. The prizes for the game are the stickers inside the eggs they have found.
Childrens birthday party games like this one can either be played indoors or outdoors. If you play indoors, you will need brown or green construction paper, a marker, scissors, and masking tape.
Draw an outline of a dinosaur foot print on each piece of construction paper and write a number inside the outline. Make sure each footprint gets a different number.
Cut out each footprint and arrange them in a large circle, making sure there is the right amount of space between the footprints so a small child can walk on them easily without having to jump.
Once the footprints are arranged, tape them down with masking tape so they don't scatter. You can do this on a hard surface outside as well, or else you can use colored chalk.
Before the game starts, write numbers matching the numbers on the footprints on scraps of paper and put them in a bowl. To start the game, have every child stand on a footprint.
Put a CD in a portable CD player, and as the music plays, the children move from one footprint to another. When the music stops, the children stop on a footprint.After the music stops, draw a number from the bowl.
The child standing on a footprint with a number matching the one on the scrap of paper wins a prize. This game can continue according to the number of prizes.
Childrens birthday party games like the pinata are always a lot of fun, so why not play a pinata game? Making a pinata dinosaur egg is relatively easy. You will need a large balloon and paper mache to make the pinata egg, as well as small dinosaur figures and candies to fill the egg once it is ready. Decorate the egg so it looks like a real dinosaur egg.
Make sure you start with making of your pinata egg atleast 4 days ahead of the party day as it will need that time to dry and be ready for kids to play on the party day.
On the day of the party, hang the pinata from a tree branch or the ceiling. If you play this game indoors, make sure there is enough room.Give each child a chance to "hatch" the pinata by blindfolding them and giving them a long stick to hit it with.
A variation of this game would be to make one or two small pinata "dinosaur eggs" filled with treats for each child. Have each child pretend they are an explorer who has come across these dinosaur eggs and have to figure out a way to "hatch" them to see what is inside.
Children are sure to enjoy these childrens birthday party games for a Dinosaur party!
