Boy’s Dinosaur Birthday Party Ideas

By  | Last Updated:  

You are sure to have a roaring good time when you host your very own dinosaur themed boy birthday party! Jenny, of Mama Jenny Bee, planned, hosted, and photographed this awesome dino themed party for her son’s birthday. She did an incredible job; the decorations were perfect for a little one, and she provided some great DIY ideas that were beyond fun! I love the candle holders that she created, along with the homemade crayons and soaps. I could definitely see little ones wanting to “help” make the favors for their guests, too.

The party food looks delicious: “herbivore delight” (Caesar salad); “tar pits” (meatballs); and “dinosaur graveyard” (baked ziti). You can also find snacks such as “dinosaur eggs” (round fruit), “dinosaur bones” (pretzel sticks) and “petrified plants” (veggie straws). My favorite is the dinosaur shaped peanut butter and fluffer-nutter sandwiches made with homemade fluff— — yum!

Check out the T-Rex melon that Jenny created; how cool is he?!  Jenny followed this great tutorial that gave her every step needed to create his vicious look.

For dessert, Jenny made a gluten free/dairy free chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for the car happily driven by dinosaurs. The T-Rex is a white cake with chocolate chips and cream cheese frosting. Wow—something for everyone! She definitely has a lot more patience than I would when making a cake. The cake scene is also where her handmade dino candle holders did their job.

In addition to using some purchased party items (which can save you time and stress), Jenny made a number of decorations, including tissue paper poms, which she suspended from the ceiling. The colorful birthday banner made with foam letters and dino shapes was also her handiwork. A variety of dinosaurs roamed the tables and thrilled the kids.

You can tell a fun party when you see the adults laughing and playing along with the kids! At Jenny’’s party, everyone had a blast posing in front of the dinosaur back drop. Giving kisses to the triceratops and receiving love nibbles from the tyrannosaurus rex afforded great photo ops! The youngest guests also had fun playing Pin-the-Head on the T-Rex.
