A DINO-rific Party!

{Made By Me Monday}
 My little guy turned 5 in January. It's taken me a month to get this post together (better late than never!) So, to say he loves dinosaurs would be an understatement. He is actually crazy about them!
scrapbook paper
distress ink
hot glue
 print your invites onto your solid colored paper, cut dino paper into a square "pocket" shape, staple your pocket onto your third piece of scrapbook paper, distress the edges of your invite, print off some little #5's, distress their edges, and give them a little crumple and hot glue your numbers onto the pocket, and slide your printed invite card into the pocket
 The dinosaurs are near-
Let's give a roaring cheer!
They are stomping over to play
to celebrate Logan's birthday!
I wanted a simple craft project for the kids to do. I started with paper towel rolls and cut them into thirds (or fourths, depending on how big you want them). Hot glue two together.
 the kids decorated them with stickers and markers and they used these DINOculars to help them in the next game... DINO HUNT aka. hide and seek! :)
DINO cupcakes!
these were super easy! I had walmart make me plain white cupcakes
 I brought them home and rolled them in Oreos (dirt) and added a dinosaur on top (got a pack of them at the $1store)
Another game we played was "Dig for Dinosaurs". I buried a couple of bags of dinosaurs in the sand and gave each kid a shovel, and they had so much fun digging for dinos! Each child got to take home ALL the dinosaurs they found and the shovel! :)

What a fun party! We had a dino party a few years ago and we had a dinosaur egg hunt with clearance Easter eggs:)

This would be perfect for a new party I just started. "Scrapbook Sundays" is going on over at born-again crafter and would love for you to link up!

I bet it was a blasting DINO-rific Party. All photos are fabulous and those cupcakes are such mouth-watering. My son will be turning 4 soon and would like to host a super fun bash for him. Recently trying to locate a suitable LA venue for a snow white themed bash. Hope that would find right spot soon.
