Dinosaur Games for Kids Birthday Party
Pin the Tail on the Dino: Put a dinosaur twist on the classic party game ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ – all you need is a big picture of a dinosaur, some paper tails, and a blindfold! Take it in turns to pin the tail on the dinosaur and whoever gets it closest wins!
Ice Age: A few days before the party, freeze small plastic dinosaurs in little water containers. When the guests arrive take them to a kiddie pool filled with water and spill in all the frozen dinosaurs. Each kid gets to thaw a dinosaur out of the ice covering it, once they do so, they get to keep the dinosaur and take it home as a party favor!
Brontosaurus, Brontosaurus, T-Rex: The kids form a small circle and all sit down. One person is it and he walks around the outside of the circle, touching the other children’s heads saying “Brontosaurus”, “Brontosaurus”, “Brontosaurus”, until he comes to the person whom he wants to chase him, he calls “T-Rex”. The T-Rex chases the player around the circle (while roaring like a T-Rex dinosaur) and the one who reaches the space first sits down… the person left standing becomes IT and starts all over.
Dinosaur Birthday Party Games + Activities
These boy and girl dinosaur birthday party games are great for everyone.
Pin the Tooth on the T-Rex: Another fun version of ‘pin the tail on the donkey’ is pin the tooth on the T-Rex! All you need is a big picture of a T-Rex and some teeth cut out of white paper!
Extinct Dinosaur: Here’s one of those fun dinosaur games that’s like hide-and-go-seek (but a reverse version of it). Someone is chosen to be IT (the extinct dinosaur), this person hides while all the others close their eyes and count to 20. When done counting, everyone sets out to find the extinct dinosaur. If someone finds him/her, they quietly hide with them (trying to be as quiet as possible so that others don’t know where they are). One by one more dinosaur become extinct joining the first extinct dinosaur. The last person who is still looking for the extinct dinosaur becomes IT and the Extinct Dinosaur games starts all over again.
Dinosaur Outside Games
These DIY dinosaur party games are perfect for warm outdoor birthday parties. Especially the dino egg hunt, the kids will have a blast running around searching for eggs.
Dinosaur Tail Stomp: This game is great fun! Tie a long piece of string around one child’s waist with a balloon attached to the end. They must run around while the other children try to pop it!
Dino Egg on a Spoon: You’ll need dessert spoons, hard-boiled eggs, silly putty eggs, plastic Easter eggs with a little present inside to weigh it down (possibly with a little dino), or any other form of “egg”. The goal here is to run from a starting point to a finishing line with an egg on a spoon. If the egg is dropped, the kid has to start again. You can work this as either a competition between teams, an individual timed race on an obstacle course, or just see who can make it the farthest without dropping their egg. This is one of those dinosaur games that have lots of laughs in store for everyone.
Dinosaur egg hunt: Simply hide them around the house or the garden for the children to find. Fill with cute little dino stickers, tattoos, or mini toys.
