crews Dinosaur Birthday party-4 yrs old

I had a few requests to post this on my blog so people could pin the ideas to their boards. We had a dinosaur safari for Crews 4th birthday. The kids and Crew had a blast!!! First I made ice cubes with dinosaurs froze in them for the drink.

Next I made dinosaur eggs out of flour water & salt and placed a dinosaur inside for the kids to dig out the dinosaur. At our dinosaur museum station. You will see pictures of this down further'

For our dinosaur discovery dig. I made fossils out of the same mixture and placed foot prints etc. in the middle. You can wait a few days to dry or place in oven at 200 degrees till dry.

I shop all year long at thrift stores etc for decorations for my kids parties. Anything that fits the theme. I buy for cheap.
I set up a safari interest. All the kids when they arrived got a safari hat, binoculars and a safari tag on a lanyard which we made.

my safari guide (uncle chad. read a dinosaur story to the kids while we waited for everyone to get there. this sign was on my front door and we had tracks to lead to the outside gate.

our guide Crews Uncle Chad!
Here are a few of the entrance way safari decorations.

the kids were so excited coming in looking through their binoculars at the jungle we created.

the guide showed a bracelet with a ant in a stone saying it was from the dinosaur ages.

first stop was dino diner where the kids ate dinosaur nuggets, dinosaur fruit snacks, Gummy worms and our t-rex watermellon.

than we went to the dinosaur discovery. Where the kids dug through the sand to find toy dinosaurs,our fossils we made and a put together dinosaur.

next we went to the dinosaur museum where we showed some real fossils, my daughter did a lava demonstration and the kids dug in their eggs to find their dinos.

Than we watched a volcano erupt.

we did a dinosaur treasure hunt next, presents, than the kids ate cake and ice cream. I made dino bones out of sugar cookies, made a chocolate cake put chocolate graham crackers crumbled on the top.

next kids went to the sou veneer shop where they got tickets to buy sou veneers and got a special goodie bag and a barrel of candy. We had a ton of little dollar store blow up dinosaurs all around the safari they all got to choose one of those at the end too.

Next it was photo time. the kids had fun with this.

My twins 13th surfs up birthday party.

This birthday party kept me so busy I barely has time to take pictures of anything. Mostly because I had the photo booth area I was doing. The girls and their friends had a blast.They are still talking about it on facebook as the boss of all parties. lol. First they stopped at a photo booth with their friends. But first there was the invite!

Now the booth- tons more than this but here is an example.
Than they got to eat some of the yummy treats we had for the party. I wish I would have taken more pics of them. But here are a few pictures taken at the party.
my friend made the yummiest cupcakes ever.
at this table there were friendship bracelets they all got to take one.
pictures of the girls on the eating tables and some sea shell displays.
entry way and a board full of pictures of the girls
growing up. There were paint cards attached where
everyone could write a birthday message to the girls.

Party game #1 - WIPEOUT
the kids got in three relay team where they had to put on some large mens swim trunks run to
the end and smash a balloon with their butts than continue the relay. It was hilarious.

Party game #2-catch the rainbow
using only straws they had to get 10 skittles in a cup by sucking them to the straw.

than it was time for swimming!!!!

The party was so much fun. Of course we have a million other pictures ( Thank you mom) But i only posted a few.

I thought this looked fun and was curious to see who would acually do it. So, even if I do not know you, sign the guestbook
