So much fun! I covered the entryway with hanging vines along the wall and various greenery hanging from the ceiling, a Dino nest with giant “dinosaur eggs”, and a “velociraptor containment” area… dry ice made for a FUN swampy smoke effect, and dinosaur sound effects were playing over a small speaker by the front door as our little party guests arrived. Then it was off on a Dinosaur Egg Hunt (camo colored Easter Eggs pre-filled with tiny toy dinosaurs purchased on Amazon) around the backyard. After the hunt, they put on their archeologist hats and ventured to the Dino Dig Site to dig for Dino bones… they had to make it across the Tar & Lava pit without falling in (2x4 8ft long wood beam propped up on cinder blocks with crumpled black garbage bags and a red plastic tablecloth underneath to look like lava and shiny “tar”). The Volcano Cakes, Dino bone cookies, and “amber” lollipops we made were all a yummy hit with our guests (all recipes and tutorials are viewable in my Instagram reels and Jurassic Party highlight @Cassidy.C.Clark ), and our birthday boy felt special and loved as everyone sans “Happy Birthday” to him around his chocolate “dirt and rocks” cake with a pterodactyl flying overhead. Magic!!!
