Ideas for a dinosaur theme party can move beyond a bag of dinosaur
chicken nuggets or cold cut sandwiches cut out with a dinosaur
cookie cutter. Kids will be able to use their own imagination in
many of these dinosaur food ideas below. Before the party or dinner,
have kids create a dinosaur menu and party invitation.

Dinosaur Centerpiece Idea
A simple dinosaur centerpiece is to place boiled eggs on a platter
of salad greens. We added a few toy dinosaurs along with them.

creatures or shells for imprinting fossils into cookie dough.
Shortbread cookie dough

You can easily create a pinata shaped like an dinosaur egg by
using a balloon and paper
We made a pinata dinosaur starting with a balloon and paper
mache on toilet paper rolls for legs and other features made from
cardboard. Then paint.
However, make sure you start this project at least a week before
your dinosaur party!
