DINO CAVE PAINTING – Create a three sided cave out of a big refrigerator box, but don’t have a top for it, leaving the top open so adults can help the young ones with this activity if needed. Tell your small guests that they are going to help decorated the dinosaur cave. Give them crayons or some non-toxic finger paints and let them have fun painting the cave. You may want to place the cave over some plastic or you could do this activity outdoors. This activity is sure to keep them busy for a bit, so it’s perfect for the beginning of your dinosaur party.

COOL DINO FOOTPRINT ACTIVITY – If you’re looking for cool dinosaur games and activities, this cool dino footprint activity is a great choice. For this activity, you need to purchase some Plaster of Paris, as well as some small pie pans. Make sure you have enough pie pans for each guest. For the activity, place some of the Plaster of Paris in all of the pie pans. With the help of adults, let the little ones make prints of their hands or feet in the pie pans. You could also have some twigs and leaves for them to press in around the prints as well. During the party, allow the dino prints to dry. Then, hand them out at the end of the birthday party so kids can take them home.

After the little play, you can let the kids have fun playing with the dinosaur sock puppets too.

DINOSAUR EGG COLORING ACTIVITY – Another fun idea for your dinosaur party is to create a fun dinosaur egg coloring game for the kids to play. You’ll need some colored eggs. Before the party, fill colored eggs with fun little prizes that the kids will enjoy. You’ll also need some dinosaur coloring pages and crayons in the colors of the eggs you have chosen. Place all the eggs in a big basket and let each child choose 1 egg. Once they have an egg, give them a coloring page and a crayon in the color of egg that they chose.

FUN DINO NECKLACE ACTIVITY – Let kids make their own cool dinosaur necklace at the dinosaur birthday party. You will need some no-bake clay for this activity, as well as some toy dinosaur figures. Give each child a circle of the no bake clay and the have them use the dinosaur figures to imprint dinosaur footprints or the shape of the dinosaur into the clay. Make sure you put a hole in the clay so it can be made into a necklace. If you’re really brave, you could let kids paint the clay necklaces with some help from the adults. Once the clay is ready, run some black cord through the imprinted clay. You can also set out different kinds of beads for kids to put in the cord to add to the beauty of the necklace. Not only does this make a cool activity that kids will enjoy, but they can take their necklaces home as a party favor when the dinosaur birthday party is over.

DINOSAUR EXCAVATION - Bury little plastic dinosaurs, eggs, and bones in a sandbox or wading pool filled with sand and let your little ones shovel to the treasure. Whatever they dig up; they get to keep. It is best to have teen helpers for this activity so sand doesn't get thrown into a child's eyes.
