Get the dig on how to throw an epic Dino Themed Birthday Party with our list of all the what-to-dos and where-to-finds from the greatest party places. From dino themed décor, to entertainment and of course, yummy birthday cake, we’ve got your back. There’s no shortage on the availability of dinosaur themed goods but we’ve narrowed it down for you – now it’s up to you to just decide. Good luck!
1) Dino Birthday Party Décor
Think fabulous party backdrops with bright bunting and a coordinating balloon garland, mini palm trees, along with a palm leaf garland on the food table and hessian fabric to add a jungle feel to the party. If you really want to splash, then Amazon sells 113 piece dinosaur themed decoration packets, including balloons, curtains, and banners.
2) Dino Themed Entertainment
Yombu has amazingly talented entertainers that will adjust easily to your preferred theme. Keep guests enraptured with dino themed face painting and a variety of party games. Think pin the tail on the dinosaur, dinosaur egg hunt, dino balloon art and dino face painting. Games are best suited to an outdoor space and can entertain 4-7 kids at a time, at the recommended ages of 5-9 years old. Bazinga Parties can adapt classic kids party games to suit your dino theme – no diggity!
Other games you can DIY include:
Dinosaur tail stomp: all you have to do is tie a string around one child’s waist with a balloon attached to it. The string has to be long enough to reach the ground. Then the other children have to chase them to try and pop it!
Dinosaur dig: bury plastic dinosaur bones in your garden or sand pit and let the little ones dig ‘em up. The one who finds the most wins.
Get cool glow in the dark dinosaur temporary tattoos from Amazon, as well as dinosaur quizzes under their toys and games section.

Cakes have gone 3D with Oakleaf Cakes’s array of themed birthday cakes frosted with Swiss buttercream frosting and filled with a delicious buttercream flavour of your choice – choose from favourites such as chocolate or vanilla, as well as fruity flavours like pineapple and strawberry or rich mocha, caramel and red velvet, and more.
