Kids of all ages love dinosaurs—it's practically a scientific fact. Whether the dinos are cute, scary, or somewhere in the middle, little ones can't get enough of them. They also really love excellent birthday party ideas. So if you've got a birthday party for boys or girls to plan, why not combine the two for an amazing dinosaur birthday party? It's a no-fail theme that'll work for both so many different kids' temperaments, and can be executed at your home or an event space any time of year. It also naturally lends itself to a lot of fun activities (like digging for dinosaur bones!) and cute decor, so that's another win.

Find tons of creative inspiration here for your child’s dinosaur-themed birthday party with ideas for everything you'll need, from DIY projects to decorations you can have delivered to your doorstep. There's an awesome dinosaur birthday cake you can make and decorate yourself, plus "fossil" sugar cookies that'll have everyone (especially your little T-Rex!) smiling. You'll also find the cutest Etsy invitation you can customize and print at home (because who wants to run an errand if they don't have to?), plus party favors and games that won't break the bank. Oh, and make sure to check out the centerpiece ideas and outdoor party ideas too.
