I know, I know, you've been waiting with bated breath for part 2 of my son's Dinosaur Birthday Party. You have been in endless agony waiting to see what the snobby food choices were, and how we spent the 2 hours from 11am to 1pm. Well, wait no longer! The best part of the party!
I made tags for each section of Dinosaur dietary concerns: carnivores, herbivores, and sweetivores. Sure, I could have just said done one that said "omnivore" but where's the fun in that??? I got the idea from a party I saw here.
Since it was a party for a two year old, there's some turkey sandwiches on white bread, back in the corner of the carnivore section. Then dinosaur boiled eggs, and for the Mommy dinosaurs: Chicken Teriyaki Spinach salad. MMMMMmmm, that salad is good! The herbivores were given a selection of fresh fruit and salad. The sweetivores also had a selection of cupcakes, chocolate covered marshmallow dinos on popsicle sticks, and chocolate dinosaur eggs (or leftover Cadbury eggs....)
These eggs weren't exactly delicious, but they looked cool! I saw them at Our Best Bites, go check out their tutorial here.
The kids also got to slurp some juice right out of Gatorade swamp. Hey, it's a fun color! Reminds me of dinosaurs. That works, right?
Saw the idea for these "Dino Bites" here at My House of Giggles. They're chocolate covered marshmallow pops. I used starburst cut into triangles for the spikes. I was debating whether I wanted to make these, and then saw those candy eyes at Michaels and couldn't help myself!
I used the same green melting chocolate to pipe polka dots onto these Cadbury chocolate eggs.
For activities we had a dinosaur egg hunt, for these redone Easter eggs.
There was a plastic dinosaur figurine inside each egg, making these a hot commodity for the little dinosaur hunters.
And there was a "dino dig" as well. We made our own salt dough a few days before, cut into bone shapes and let them dry out. (I'll do a post next week with the recipe and pictures) We buried those and more plastic dinosaur toys in four buckets. There were about 2 kids to each bucket.
This was a surprising popular activity that went on for a long hot while!
I made cupcake wrappers to go around the cupcakes from regular bright cardstock. I have a Cricut Lite cartridge that just does wrappers and these were the "grass" choice but looked wild enough for dinosaurs. Then I made toppers with stamps on the same colors of paper.
This face made it all worth the effort:
And if any of all ya' all want to recreate this party, feel free to use these tags I made. Just let me know! (That's right, my only payment is in flattery! And we wouldn't mind if you decided to follow our blog!)

Thanks so much for linking up! I featured your post in my wrap up http://tidymom.net/2011/great-ideas-by-you/ Have a FABULOUS weekend!
I'm thinking of doing a Dino party with Brontosaurus burgers, fossil fruit, volcanic veggies w/ dino dip, ice age ice cream, and jurassic juice.
I'm having my son's 3rd birthday party next weekend (June 30th). His actual birthday is July 2nd but we recently moved 5 hours from family so we are traveling home for the weekend to have his party. I'm in the process of getting together materials and decorations for his party---we finally decided on a dinosaur theme because he's been talking about them so much! I love your ideas and plan to use them for his party as well! Thanks so much for the help. If you have any other tips please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for the cute ideas :)
