Here are some of the things I made for my son's 5th birthday party.

I made a hot lava rock to play hot potato with.  Made from glued together pieces of syrofoam that i shaped with a knife (great for getting out any aggression) and painted.  I don't have a picture of the final product.  Sorry!

The party hats inspired by hats I saw online (can't remember the site I saw them on).  Bought poster board at the 99cent store and used elastic string.

I made a papier mache volcano from an old lamp shade and did the old science class formula of baking soda and vinegar.

I cut feet shapes out of colored craft foam for them to wear and let the "dino stomp" on a sheet of bubble wrap.  Bad picture.

Pin the tail on the dino.  I can't take credit for this lovely dinosaur, my brother made this one for me.

The cake tasted horrible but it looked awesome.  It was way overcooked and frosting from a can.  Oh well, kids don't care.

I also papier mache eggs from water balloons and buried dog bones in the sand box for an excavation site.  I have no pictures of these.

Thanks for looking, I hope this helps inspire a dino party of your own.  I'll try to find some of the sites that inspired me.

Haha!  You caught me.  On the cake there are chocolate covered raisins that are suppose to look like rocks, I thought about calling them droppings though.
