Jurassic Park Birthday Party

Standard

A few years back my daughter had a wish for a Jurassic Park birthday. On a shoestring budget I was able to pull off an amazing themed birthday party for her. For decorations I used two great colors which are prominent in JP merchandise, red and yellow. I found some great Jurassic Park 3 and Lost World party supplies on eBay which included plates, napkins, tablecloths, balloons, goodie bags, etc. My daughter says that only dinosaurs in Jurassic park were real dinosaurs and so no cutesy Dinos to be found here. There was a great candy mold online that I purchased and used to make my own candy lollipops for each child as a take home treat along with a balloon. The cake was made at Costco but I had a frosting sheet made with two favorite dinosaurs picture on it and carried the theme of the red and yellow for the frosting. I also wanted to have a great photo prop to take a photo of each of the kids with so I came up with a cardboard jeep. This was easy to make out of a giant sheet of cardboard from Costco. It was one of the sheets that goes between stacks of products in the Costco store and free of course. I used markers to draw the outline of the jeep and collected some great images from online to print out and add to the jeep. All the kids adored this as they stood behind it and pretended to drive when I took photos. The last fun thing I wanted to make was a piñata. I could find anything close to what I wanted so I made my own using some dollar store balloons, tissue paper, newspaper and glue. I was able to make a baby raptor hatching out of the egg. Also this was made to be a pull string piñata so less destruction would happen. They had so much fun with it. Lastly I printed out some iron ons for her tshirt.
