Ideas for dinosaur games are practically endless, especially if you can use both indoor and outdoor environments. Here is one you can use either indoors or in the backyard.
Pin the Tail on the Tyrannosaurus Rex
Blindfold the guests with handkerchiefs decorated with dinosaurs (if you can find them) and make a Tyrannosaurus and tail out of pieces of thin cardboard. A poster of a T-rex works well also; just cut the tail out of the poster and put two-sided sticky tape on the back of it.
Dinosaur Ring Toss
Purchase inflatable dinosaur punching bags that stand on the floor and make rings by taping together pieces of heavy rope that make circles big enough to pass over the dinosaur's head. You can play this game inside or outside.
Dinosaur Birthday Party Ideas for an Archeological Dig
Fill a child's inflatable pool with dirt and bury all kinds of
miscellaneous items in the dirt--popsicle sticks, pennies, old
costume jewelry and small plastic toys.
Designate one item as the real "treasure", meaning whoever finds the real treasure first wins a prize. Give each child a spoon with which to dig.
You can even make your own "fossils" using this recipe:
• 1/2 cup (68 grams) of cooled coffee
• 1/2 cup (68 grams) of salt
• 1 cup (136 grams) of used coffee grounds
• 1 cup (136 grams) of flour
Make dough out of the ingredients and knead it for a few minutes.
Roll the dough out on a piece of wax paper. Start making your fossils by using cookie cutters or making impressions in the dough resembling teeth, bones and footprints.
Allow the fossils to dry for about eight hours before burying them in the dirt.
Hatch the Prize!
Other dinosaur game ideas includes
this "hatch the prize" game which all kids love because it involves
a prize and popping a balloon.
Purchase a bag of small, plastic dinosaur figures (or any other toys small enough to fit into a party balloon) and stick one in a balloon before blowing up the balloon. Tell the guests they are going to hatch dinosaur eggs by sitting on these balloons until they pop. Don't tell them a surprise waits for them once the balloon bursts.
Throw the balloons into the center of room and tell the kids to grab one balloon. Then cover your ears and wait for the noise to start!
Dinosaur Egg Hunt
This is fun if you have access to a park or a large backyard in which to plan an egg hunt. Obtain a watermelon and paint it white using acrylic or tempera poster paint. After it dries, paint orange, blue and green colored spots all over it and let that dry. Hide the "egg" and tell birthday guests a dinosaur came by last night and deposited an egg in your backyard (or the park). The first one to find the egg wins a prize and gets to eat it, too!
Kids birthday party ideas for dinosaur-themed favors include temporary dinosaur tattoos, dinosaur finger puppets, dinosaur pencil erasers and dinosaur windup toys.
Help your child create personalized invitations or table place cards and decorations using cardstock, glue, dinosaur stickers, markers and dinosaur clipart found on this website (link below).
If possible, hand deliver each invitation by folding cards into small enough squares to fit into plastic eggs (you can use the Easter egg kind) meant to represent dinosaur eggs. Place some pieces of hard rock candy into the eggs as a special treat.
Here are some cute and funny dinosaur drawings to use for invitations, place cards and what else you might want to make for the dinosaur party.
The size of the drawings is 150 dpi, approx. 7-8 cm (2,8-3,2 inches), and I have made them in both black/white drawings and in color. You can always make them smaller, but if you want to use them for invitations or decorations, it's better they are big.
A cute message inviting guests to a dinosaur-themed birthday party could be something like
"Extinction will happen to your fellow dinosaurs if you don't come to the party!"
"You don't want to make T-Rex mad, do you? Then make sure to stomp your way over to _________'s house and enjoy a day carousing with the dinos".
Other ideas for dinosaur invitations include
making invitations in the shapes of different dinosaurs by printing
dinosaur clipart, gluing one image to a piece of cardstock and
cutting around the edge of the dinosaur.
Cut a half-egg shape out of cardstock and create a jagged edge along the top of the half-egg, making it look like an egg after it has been cracked open.
Glue the half-egg on the bottom half of the dinosaur and write this message on the back of the invitation:
"Come help ___________ crack the presents open at his dinosaur birthday party".
Find some more dinosaur clipart on the page here on this site Dinosaur Clipart.
Here are three cards with dinosaurs that would be great to use for invitations or birthday cards:
These three dino cards will bee approx 5,3 x 3,8 inches printed with 250 dpi.

Have fun naming foods with a variety of dinosaur-themed names, such as:
• Pterodactyl Wings--chicken wings
• Brontosaurus Burgers--hamburgers with all the fixings
• Stegosaurus Eggs--hard-boiled eggs
• Tyrannosaurus Toasted Cheese Sandwiches--served with fossilized apple slices (apples drizzled with caramel)
• Ice Age Lemonade Pops--fill ice cube trays with lemonade, cover with plastic wrap and poke popsicle sticks through the plastic to make frozen treats
• Jello Dinosaur Eggs--carefully break the top of an egg, pour out the yolk and then rinse the inside of the shell. Pour jello that you have already mixed into the egg and refrigerate the egg. Once the jello inside sets, hand them to your guests and tell them to break the eggs open to find a surprise
• Dip pretzel sticks into melted chocolate, let them dry and serve them as dinosaur bones
A collection of kids birthday party ideas for dinosaur-themed party foods wouldn't be complete without a volcano cake:
Bake a Bundt cake, any flavor, and place it on top of a square, nine-inch cake.
Cover the entire cake with chocolate icing and then make orange-colored frosting by adding yellow and red food coloring to white icing. Heat the icing until it is melted enough to drizzle over the Bundt cake. Pour the orange icing over the volcano cake so that it resembles a volcano spewing lava.
Purchase cake decorations like plastic trees, dinosaurs and cave men and insert around the cake.
Serve with "Dino Punch", which is a sweet mixture of lime jello, sugar, lemon juice, pineapple juice and water.
Here are some wonderful and funny birthday cards with dinosaurs. I have made them with photos of toy dinosaurs, and they work so well because the are simple and funny.
You can also take a look at the cards on the pages with birthday cards for a child's 1st., 2nd and 3rd birthday you will find a dino-card for that exact age.

Cover tables with old white sheets or large pieces of newspaper
print decorate them with dinosaur footprint clipart as well as other dinosaur and prehistoric images.
Scatter tables with dinosaur-shaped fruit snacks, pop-rock candy and markers to let the kids get creative whenever they feel like it.
More dinosaur birthday party ideas involve using small stuffed dinosaurs
as centerpieces by tying helium balloons to their tails.
Hang green and brown streamers from the ceiling to create a "jungle effect" and play jungle sounds in the background during the party. Dinosaur banners are easy to make with your computer, your printer, some banner paper and delightful dinosaur images from this site.
Create a banner with pictures and words that say "Happy
Put the ending "saurus" on the child's name, as well as provide nametags for all guests using this same kind of name change.
You can make this folded dino to use for place cards or just for decorations, or you can make all the birthday party guests make one each.
|Dinosaur with spikes on back|
|Large template for a
folded dinosaur with spikes on back
To have red spikes on both sides you need to glue two of them together, hence the two clip art below for the large template
|Spikes for the larger dinosaur birthday decoration|
|Template for smaller dinosaur folding|
|Extra dinosaur spikes for
the template decoration
If you make the birthday guests cut the dinosaur decoration, some of them are bound to break and get cut wrong, and maybe some of the kids would like the dinosaur spikes in different colors - so here they are, the extra dinosaur spikes.
