A simple and fun activity for kids who like to dig in the dirt looking for artifacts! Do this outdoors or indoors with a sandbox or large, shallow plastic tub and fill them with a bag of play sand.
Get a pack of six or more plastic dinosaurs from a dollar store and hide them under the sandbox for kids to dig up and find! The kid who digs up dinosaurs the most is the winner! But even if there's no competition, it's still an exciting activity kids love to do at a dinosaur-themed birthday party!
Kids love hide and seek games, so they should be happy to look for all the dinosaur eggs hidden in the area! This is basically an Easter egg hunt but with a dinosaur theme. Take chocolate or plastic eggs and hide them all over your house or garden and send the kids to look for them.
Nothing could be more exciting at a dinosaur-themed birthday party than a trip to prehistoric-themed parks! Fill their curiosity with visual images and interesting facts about dinosaurs that will make the field-trip fun and worthwhile! Before you decide to have the house party, check out Google for some local attractions.
Unleash children's creativity by serving them gingerbread and dinosaur cookies to decorate themselves! Buy dinosaur cookie cutters online, at bakeries, or craft stores.
