I don’t know what it is about dinosaurs but kids just go mad for them, so chances are at some stage you’ll be asked for a dinosaur themed party. The trick to throwing any themed party is in the details, and finding ways to do it affordably and even getting the kids involved. With this in mind, we have come up with some really cool ideas for your Brisbane Kid’s dinosaur party!

Dinosaur Fun

Why not set up a ‘Find the Dino Eggs’ party treasure hunt game? You could hide painted eggs, chocolate eggs or even favour-filled plastic eggs (these ones are from Amazon) all round your party venue for the party guests to uncover!

You could set up a game of ‘Dig for Bones’ with hidden dinosaurs in a sandpit that your little explorers have to find. Setting up some simple utensils like these on will make the dig even more exciting!
