Dinosaur Hunter Fossil Birthday Party

ROAR! Sharing my munchkin’s Dino Hunter Party today!!! Last year my little man was obsessed with Dinosaurs and said he wanted to be a “fossil searcher” when he grew up. After seeing Gretchen’s amazing Dino Hunter Party {of 3 Little Monkey Studios} I knew that a Dino Hunter party was definatley in the cards. I wanted to stick with a neutral color pallet with some touches of gold {and lots of gold & bronze dinosaurs}. I just have to say plastic animals look so much cooler after a coat of spray paint! Ha.

Backing up a second to talk about the amazing printables by Gretchen. I can’t say enough about how awesome her printables are – from invitations, to banners, to activity page, to bottle labels, putting together this party was a breeze! Gretchen was even sweet enough to send me her fossil kit from her son’s Dinosaur party. The kids really enjoyed learning about the fossils and they couldn’t believe that some of the fossils were that old. The activity worksheet also kept them busy in between activities. The kids also really enjoyed the dino dig activity – a kit comes complete with a hammer, a chisel, brush and the dinosaur toy in a sand block. I repackaged them in kraft bio containers from Shop Sweet Lulu and finished them off with a dino hunter label. Just be warned this activity is a little messy and time consuming to dig out all the little pieces but the kids just loved it!!!!

The favor table was my favorite. I just loved how the mini mason jar favors turned out. Simply glue a plastic dinosaur to the lid & spray paint with your favorite color. I would use a stronger glue than hot glue because the dinos come of easily when using hot glue. These favor jars can be used for any theme, I’m actually making some for an upcoming safari baby shower. The favor table also included chocolate bars complete with a dino wrapper, diy linen bags filled with salt water taffy and of course kids got to take home their own dinosaurs.

Finally, let’s talk about the amazing burlap wreath! Bethany from Sweet Georgia Sweet was kind enough to send over a burlap garland & a burlap wreath complete with a gold dinosaur. I added a little straw flag from the printables to tie it all in but I just love this wreath. Thank you so much Bethany!

Huge huge huge thank you to my sweet friend Jennifer of Quench My Heart Photography who popped over to take some amazing pictures. Enjoy the pictures below & tomorrow it’s all about Dino Desserts! Roooooar!!
