Birthday party theme: Dinosaurs!

Recently our oldest boy celebrated his 6 years old, with a birthday party for most of his friends and also our friends and their kids.

A lot of people. A lot of kids. Newborns, toddlers, teens… we got them all.

And every year my son chooses a different party theme, according to his preferences at the moment – last year we had Paw Patrol, and Lightning McQueen from cars the year before.

So here’s a very typical birthday theme for 6-year-old boys: dinosaurs!

I love decorating the party table for him, and although I bought some stuff online (see below), I also did a lot of things myself.

Father’s comment

It amazes me, every single year, what my wife creates for the boys’ birthday parties.

It’s almost like a new Christmas in the middle of the year.

I have to admit I never took much interest in birthday parties but today I have a different opinion. My wife’s credit.


Dino-balloons: these are actually quite easy to make, you just need balloons and card paper of the same color – the balloon is the body, and you cut the heads, arms, legs, and tails and glue them with.

The end result is as shown in the image below.

Then I decided all the food needed to be Dino-themed.

So black and white grapes became Dino Eggs and nachos became Dino-claws;

There was a carnivore corner, with cocktail sausages, and a herbivore corner, with carrot sticks and sauce, to dip.

The brotonsanswiches, of ham and cheese and the Dino guacamole were also a success.

The drinks table was the “drinking hole”, and the final touch was, of course, a themed Dinosaur cake!

He loved it, and I loved doing these decors, because, most of them, I actually did with him, which is twice the work of course, but also twice the fun!

This is also a shortlist of what we included in the party, and that contribute highly to the success the party was:

Dino balloons to fill with helium

If you don’t have helium, or you don’t want to spend money buying it, there is an alternative. Use vinegar mixed with baking soda. Check this tutorial. It’s a lot of fun to do with your kids.

Plates, cups, and napkins (dino version!)

– A banner to put on the door so that everyone knows where the party is and also what sort of action they’ll be finding.

– For the giveaways, you can check these great boxes and also these for the content.

This pretty much sums up what we did to transform our son’s 6 years old birthday party into a cretaceous birthday party, full of dinos all over the place.

If your kids love dinos, this is a great way to surprise them.

If they’re into something else, I’m sure you’ll take some great ideas to make your own party a huge success.

Our son loved it and I can’t wait for the next birthday.

Just like we teach our kids to ask what they want, I’ll ask you to take a second to share “Birthday party theme: Dinosaurs!” with your audience. They respect great content.
