With so many dinosaur-themed activities and DIY ideas, you'll never run out of smart ways to celebrate a birthday for your dinosaur-loving boy or girl.

Planning Dinosaur Parties

New to planning a birthday party? Check out this step-by-step guide to planning a party here. Dinosaurs are such a fun theme for a party, and the ways you can use them in planning are open to the imagination. If you want an even more specific dinosaur-themed birthday, check out these Good Dinosaur Party Ideas.

We love this fun setup for a dinosaur birthday, including the use of balloon decorations. Decorations are what bring a dinosaur birthday party to life, and there are so many ways to create a Jurassic set up using both store-bought and DIY dino decor. While you can do any color theme, green is a popular place to start in order to create a lush Jurassic landscape. Add variations of other greens, blues, and oranges for a more traditional look, or try using aqua, purple, pink, and lime green for a girl dinosaur party—or for a boy who loves those colors, of course! Try using a mix of balloons, faux greenery, streamers, and live plants to really set the stage.

Here are some simple ways and DIY ideas to bring the land of the dinosaurs into your party space:

  • Dinosaur balloons: From patterned standard balloons to full colorful dinosaurs, there are lots of dino options out there. Adding themed balloons is one of the easiest (and least expensive) ways to pull a party theme together on a budget. A party balloon arch made out of regular and dinosaur-shaped balloons would be easy to pull off and makes quite the statement, especially with the addition of the number balloon.
  • Dinosaur-shaped signs or banners with dinos: Roll with the "Dino Mite" theme in posters, napkins, or invitations.
  • Use tissue paper to create lush grass tablescapes or glue it to a cardboard outline to create a prehistoric volcano or number for the birthday girl or boy.
  • Purchase paper plates and cutouts with dinosaurs on them, and use less expensive solid-colored table covers, napkins, and balloons to fill the space.
  • Set up a plastic kiddie pool with sand and create an area to dig for dinosaur bones and other fossil materials.
  • Tape T-Rex footprints on the ground.
  • Make easy jungle-type trees by twisting up brown packaging paper and taping it to a wall. Then cut out palm fringe leaves to attach to the top out of green construction paper.
  • Heighten their sense of adventure with a themed Jurassic Park or Jurassic World caution signs or decor at the entrance to the party.
  • Play the sounds of dinos roaming the land (or the soundtrack to their favorite dinosaur movie) on speakers during the party.
  • Add an inflatable dinosaur to the mix—this 4-foot-tall dinosaur offers endless possibilities for a fun birthday celebration.

Dinosaur Party Activities

A dinosaur birthday party would not be complete without some games, activities, and little crafts that will make kids roar with delight! Choose a few from the list below, or make up your own!

  • Dinosaur dig for bones: Have the boys and girls put on their paleontologists' faces and look for bones and other fossils. You can do this in a sand pit (small container with sand or kiddie pool) or make easy dinosaur fossils to pick at with toothpicks. Be sure to provide paintbrushes for them to brush away the dirt like real dinosaur hunters!
  • Dinosaur footprints: Cut out large dinosaur footprints on cardboard and attach a thin strip of cardboard on top to form a small loop. Or, glue a pair of cheap flip flops to the top for the same effect! Kids can stomp their way around the party with their dino feet or hold a relay race while they try to run with the footprint attached!
  • Dinosaur party games: Every birthday party needs some fun games to get children excited. You can put a dino-spin on classic party games or try some of the ones below!
    • Triceratops Ring Toss: Paint a Triceratops head on a large poster board or use mod podge to attach your favorite image to a foam board from the dollar store. Attach three plastic cones for the horns and use plastic rings to try to get the cones.
    • Pin the Horn (or Tail) on the Dinosaur: Who doesn't love a rousing game of Pin the Tail? Just switch it up to make it with dino friends!
    • T-Rex Bean Bag Toss: Feed the hungry tyrannosaurus rex by throwing bean bags into his mouth! Create the game board the same way as you would for the ring toss, only this time cut out a hole in the center to throw the bean bags through.
    • Dinosaur Scavenger Hunt: Another fun activity that the kids can do at your party, this scavenger hunt will be fun for kids of all ages.
    • Dinosaur Egg Hunt/Dino Egg Hunt: Boys and girls will love hunting for dinosaur eggs during the party. Be sure to hide fun treats or little plastic toys inside for an extra surprise!

Dinosaur Themed Party Favors
