Lots of streamers (may have went overboard) but I was going for a jungle look with red lava
This was the Dinosaur Sensory Bin play area (my mom lended me her house plants for a more jungle feel)
For every party I throw, I cover our coffee table with easel or butcher paper, and set out a bowl of crayons, just for a fun extra element to the party. For this party, I freehanded a brontosaurus and my friend did a T-Rex for me (because I would not have been able to pull that one off!) I had them laminated and then picked up some of those new dry erase crayons so they could color the dinosaurs and then I'm able to wipe them clean afterward and start anew!
Yay for friends who draw better than you do! haha! Seriously Tiffany (a fellow themed party lover, crafty, artsy, wonderful momma) did a great job! Visit her blog for lots of fun and educational ideas for toddlers!
I velcro'd the T-Rex to the fridge.
I keep window markers in L's bathroom at all times, but I wanted to welcome our friends to use them!
These "Dinosaur Eggs" were the playdate favors. These were made using homemade COFFEE DOUGH.
Since they are easy to break open, I stuck prizes inside them (either mini dinosaurs or plastic diamonds) for the kids to "excavate" and find.
Each child got their own dinosaur egg
