Dinosaur Party Success!!!!

Nearly a week since the dinosaur party and can't believe I no longer have to work on it!

My son really enjoyed his day

The guests all came into the party where they were given the choice of a handmade dinosaur mask and some handmade dinosaur feet.
They then had to go over to a table to decorate their own party bags with, you've guessed it, dinosaur foam stickers!  Throughout the party they had the chance to win prizes and put them in their party bags.

We had lots of dinosaur themed games with throw (dino) beanbags through Georgie (my son named him).  Georgie was made with MDF. I drew the dinosaur in pencil, cut out his mouth with a jigsaw and then painted him. Get all three in his mouth and win some dinosaur stickers, a dinosaur chocolate (made approx. 125 in a silicone mould) or a chocolate egg...I told them it was a dinosaur egg!

Bought some hollow plastic eggs at Easter, the kind that you can open.  Filled them with either a dinosaur chocolate, a chocolate egg or some stickers.  Put them in a box of shredded paper and they had to take turns to find an egg and see what prize they had won!

Another station was "bowling bones" where card bones were attached to drinks bottles and a ten pin bowling type game commenced (see above re prizes)
Fourth station was pin the horn on the triceratops
After each group had visited all four stations it was time for lunch with dinosaur themed food...dinosaur cut  out sandwiches, chocolates, chocolate eggs (dino eggs of course!) dinosaur turkey nuggets and biscuits- cut out with a dinosaur cutter and also had dinosaur footprints in round biscuits (washed a toy dinosaurs feet and stuck them in before baking!)
After lunch it was full group party games.
Hot rocks...bit like pass the parcel, but if your holding the hot rock when the music stops, you are out (though you are given a bag of sweets) I'm sure some of them held on just to get the sweets!
The last person in, won the main prize.
The next game was dinosaur stomp, which was such fun, I forgot to take photos!
Get some bubble wrap, a square for each person and put their name on the bottom of it.  When the music starts they have to jump on their own piece and try and pop as many bubbles as possible!
The last game was musical dinosaurs.  Like musical chairs but the dinosaurs stuck on the wall on the picture above, were placed on the floor and they had to stand on one when the music stopped, the one left without a dinosaur was out (again with a bag of sweets.)
Found plenty of goodies for their bags...dinosaur bubbles, dinosaur pencils, packets of dinosaur biscuits, dinosaur notepads and mini dinosaur models.
Hope you enjoyed my son's party...he wants an aeroplane one for next year!
Oh and the cake!
