Dinosaur Party Planning

From the moment we learn about these colossal creatures, dinosaurs captivate our minds and spark our imaginations.

Here at SPARK POP, we can’t help but get swept up in awe of these prehistoric giants that we have kept alive through educational shows like ‘Dino Dana’, timeless classics ‘The Land Before Time’, or the 30-year legacy of ‘Jurassic Park’.

Dinosaurs continue to leave an indelible mark on our lives so why wouldn’t we celebrate an upcoming birthday with a roaring dinosaur-themed party? If you are looking for out of home options, check out our Best Dinosaur Experiences article here.

Inspired by the opening of Jurassic World: The Exhibition in Sydney, SPARK POP has put together this guide to give you a head start on planning an epic dinosaur party, from mouthwatering dino-inspired treats to creative decorations and memorable party favors.

Dino Names

Theming can be as simple as a catch-phrase or name for the different elements to make it fun and memorable. Try this with your food labels.

  • “T-Rex Tortillas”
  • “Muttaburrasaurus Milkshakes.”


Take guests back to a prehistoric world by incorporating dinosaur body elements. Here are some ideas:

  • Lights – neon or string are great as they can be reused or easily on-sold on Marketplace.
  • Fossils and bones – decorate tables with fossil imprints and dinosaur bones which may be used for explorations post party.
  • Dino Food Picks – decorate your sandwiches, hot food, or even make mini fruit skewers with these mini picks.
  • Fun Facts – hang posters or banners featuring Australian dinosaurs and some cool facts about them.


No party is complete without some games and party favours. Create personalized goodie bags for your guests with dino-themed treats and small activity-based toys.

With this guide, you’re on your way to hosting a dinosaur party that will transport your guests back in time to the land of dinosaurs. Happy dino party planning!
