Emmesaurus turns 5! By  in Birthday


Party Recap

By my daughters 4th Birthday i had already started to purchase items for her 5th birthday which was going to be a tea party! well that got thrown out and she was talking about Dino Dan's on Nick Jr. Birthday party and I asked her if she would like to hav a dino party as well. She helped me with all the details the color, the games, the type of cake she wants etc. I wanted to have it at a museum but in Texas dinosaurs are on exhibit and not during her birthday month so i had to plan this party from beginning to end. Activities, games, when to eat, volcano explosion, and pinata... We had 30 kids from 2-6 years old and it was a blast!

    Thank you so much! It's hard finding something for a girl dinosaur theme.

    no problem, for the centerpieces i just made the images really big and cut them out and put them in spray painted planters, my husband made the volcano out of the stuff from home depot and we spray painted it dark brown, any lighter and it looks more like dino poo, we did the explosion with big red soda an mentos, you can find it online as well.
