Plan Your Party

If you’re hosting a dress up party. make sure you give your guests plenty of notice so they can plan the perfect primeval costume.

Party Games

Dinosaur Dig

This activity is double the fun – your kids get to make the bones and hide them, then their friends get to find them. Making the bones is easy with a simple mix of flour, water and salt. Follow the instructions from Kitchen Floor Crafts and be as creative as you like — you can make teeth, backbones, skulls, claws and more.


Bury the bones in some bark (available from Garden Centres) like The Little Umbrella or in your sandpit if you have one. Add potted ferns and rocks to give it the feel of a real archaeological dig.


Dinosaur Egg Hunt

These plastic dino eggs are widely available online and make great prizes for a Good Dinosaur themed party. Hide the eggs around your garden and let your party guests find them — and the surprise inside! This idea was inspired by Tonya from Soiree Event Design.

Dinosaur Balloon Pop

Place a couple of lollies inside each balloon before you inflate them, then arrange them in the shape of Arlo like Sarah did.
