I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get this one the blog but it happens. I always let my son choose his birthday party theme and for his 6th birthday he decided he wanted a Jurassic World party. I know your probably going what kind of parent is she letting her son watch this movie. So before you judge me, he had not seen any of the Jurassic Park movies he had only seen the previews and what boy doesn’t love dinosaurs. Yes he has since seen some of them at home in a controlled environment where we could bypass any scary or bloody parts.
Anyway back to the party, my son loves doing his birthday at the house because there are two things he consistently wants; a bounce house and a pinata! This puts a little more pressure on me when it’s at our house, because I have more to decorate. And when it comes to parties I don’t do small, go big or go home :).
I like to start early usually at least a month in advance I start buying and making things, you can see my party planing tips here.
Since my son has gotten a bit older he has actually had some really good ideas for his party, he wanted his friends to get tickets when they entered the party and wanted a big Park entrance. So that got my creative juices going, and we came up with these really cool park passes for each kid. Then I made some official badges for the “workers” of the park.
Thanks to my husband we were able to come up with this cool entrance so when the guests arrived they felt like the were coming to the park. We ran out of time so the sign didn’t turn out like I wanted.
One the park visitors arrived, they had several options for entertainment. We had a dinosaur fossil dig (apparently I slacked off and forget to get a picture of this), a bouncy jungle, and lots of yummy food to eat.
I bought a 72 pack of little plastic dinosaurs off Amazon to put in the sand box for the dino dig and the kids could take them home as prizes.
For the party banners, treat bags etc., I purchased those from this great little shop on Etsy called TinkerFactory. She has some great stuff and I got it all right away, through a file to download.
The party turned out great and all the kids had a blast! Hopefully you enjoyed these fun ideas and if you have any questions about the party feel free to leave a comment.
