Here’s our pick of the best dinosaur party ideas and supplies…

1. Little Party Dino Invitations, £3.69 (8 pack)

Get the dinosaur theme going long before the party’s even started with these cute dinosaur invitations, which include space for all the essential party info including whose it is, where, when and and how to RSVP.

Do make sure, though, that you know your child’s nursery or school rule (if they have one) on how / if you’re allowed to give out invitations on the premises.

Available from: Party Delights

2. Cute T-Rex Happy Dino Birthday Balloon Party (5 pack)

Make sure everyone knows where the party house is with this gorgeous dinosaur balloon bouquet. The balloons are foil, stand between 43cm and 49cm tall and, if you tie them to the gates, they’ll give a pretty big clue that it’s a special day for someone inside!

3. Personalised Dinosaur Roar Photo Cake, £22.99

What’s a party without cake? And if you want the personal touch, why not opt for this cute dinosaur-themed one which includes a photo of the birthday boy or girl on it. It serves 20, lasts 10 days and is made with free-range eggs. You can choose between chocolate or vanilla and there’s an express delivery option for the next day if you order before 2pm.

Available from: Party Pieces

4. Jurassic World Stand-In Photo Prop, £29.94

A party’s not a party without a photo op these days, is it?!  And we have to say we LOVE this huge scary dinosaur stand-in prop which comes in at 1.88m – so will be taller than a fair few adults. Just be careful it’s not too scary for smaller kids…

Available from: Party Packs

5. 84-piece dinosaur tableware set, £12.99

If you’re planning a dinosaur feast at your child’s party, you’ll want to make sure your table is dressed for the theme. This set from Yangte is brilliantly priced for what you get: 12 cups (250ml), 12 knives, spoons, and forks, 12 dinner plates (23cm), 12 dessert plates (17cm) and 12 dinner napkins. Guaranteed to make any dinner table look positively roarsome.

Available from: Amazon

6. Dinosaur Pinata, £12.99

Don’t worry – if you whack this dinosaur he won’t attack back! Instead you’ll just be showered with sweet treats: how nice is that?! (Do make sure there’s an adult present when the kids are doing this one though.)

Available from: Party Pieces

7. Dinosaur Colour-in Masks, £3.95 (8 pack)

If you think you can get the kids to sit still for a few minutes, or your party’s in winter so outdoor activities will be set to a minimum or not an option at all, we think these dinosaur masks are a great idea for some crafty fun. They come in 4 assorted designs, with string to tie them around, but not the colouring pens  – so do make sure you have those handy if you get these in.

13. Dinosaur Party Games Kit, £6.99 (6 pack)

Build on the dinosaur theme with this brilliant party kit which comes with 4 dinosaur card glasses, and a twist on Pin The Tale On the Donkey (Pin The Horn On the Dino obviously!). There’s also a Horn Hoopla for a Jurassic fairground feel.

Available from: Party Delights

14. Dinosaur Pull-string Pinata, £14.95

If you like the idea of having a pinata, but the party you’re hosting will be full of younger children, so you’re not mad on giving them a ‘bashing tool’, one option might be to go for a pull-string version like this. Instead of hitting the pinata, children take turns to pull the strings – and one magic string opens it up (fillers not included).

Available from: Partyrama

15. Dinosaur Hamper, £12

This lovely hamper makes a super-nice treat if you’re doing a small sleepover party or, perhaps, for the birthday child once everyone’s left and they’re on that end-of-party downer. It includes a pair of stretch socks (one size), a mug, hot chocolate drink powder, marshmallows, a dinosaur cookie, and candy canes.
