My little girl is obsessed with dinosaurs - completely and utterly obsessed. And, Land Before Time is her favorite of them all. So, with her 4th birthday approaching, we knew we would have to have a Land Before Time inspired dinosaur party. And, per her request, it had to be a water party too.
What People Ate
The children ate brontosaurus bites (mini hotdogs) while the adults enjoyed pterodactyl sliders (barbecue chicken sliders with Asian slaw). Also available was green food (crudite platter), watermelon spikes, frozen dino eggs (grapes), bright circle (sun) chips, and tree star sweets (cookies).
What People Drank
Sky water (water and lemonade) and swamp punch
Strawberry dinosaur cake
Party favors included foam dinosaur feet, pink dinosaur shaped soap, chocolate dino eggs, and dinosaur shaped sand toys.
Activities / Games
The children played in the backyard swingset and in the wading pool.
This was really a very inexpensive party. The decorations cost less than $40, favors less than $20, and the food was probably around $50. Altogether one of the least expensive parties I've ever thrown.
