I can’t believe I haven’t shared one of my favorite parties of all time.
David is like every other five-year-old boy I’ve ever met! He loves dinosaurs!! He knows most of their names, and whether they were carnivores or herbivores. He knows about how they fought. He surprises me regularly with his dinosaur knowledge. So there was no question that we would have a dinosaur birthday party for his fifth birthday.
We served “dinosaur” eggs. I made these deviled eggs by cracking the shells and placing them in water with food coloring for awhile. I also bought some silicone dinosaur molds for small chocolates. I made fossil cookies out of sugar cookies and when they were just about done, I pressed a small dinosaur toy into the cookies. My daughter made a volcano cake out of Rice Krispies and a real cake. We put a cup in the middle and put dry ice in so it would look like it was erupting.
For activities, we had an ice age game. I had a cooler of dinosaurs and icy water. In 20 seconds, the players had to rescue as many dinosaurs as the could.
We also made dinosaur bath bombs. Bath bombs are all the rage, so this was a fun activity.
We did our trivia game as usual. We also did a photo scavenger hunt. I find this is one of the only ways I can get lots of pictures of the party-goers. We did the unwrapping game as always. We also did Dino egg pong (just like beer pong without the beer). I also bought wooden 3-d dinosaur puzzles. They were so hard, only the adults could do them, and even then, most gave up.
It was a very busy, but fun party!
