Okay, here are some pictures from my niece's dinosaur themed birthday party! A lot of these ideas are things my sister found on Pinterest... The party was an absolute hit, and I think all of the kids AND adults had fun!!!! :)
We made the spewing lava by pouring melted sugar over ice cubes. It created those really cool twisted looking pieces!
These were the "goodie bags". Each kid took home a dinosaur egg (paper mache), then cracked it open when they got home. Parents were texting pictures of their kid opening up the egg (so exciting)! :)
Here's the birthday weirdo, I mean kid... She loves T-Rex! The kids also got to do a really cool dinosaur fossil hunt at night. My sister made fossils out of dough, then we hid them all over the yard. When it got dark, we had the kids look for fossils using flashlights. Everyone really loved that activity! :)
Here's the recipe for the Luscious Slush Punch. Now, in the picture it doesn't look very "luscious" or "slushy", but trust me, it was really good!
Luscious Slush Punch
(Recipe from allrecipes.com)
*We only used 1 cup of white sugar (it was still sweet enough), and we froze the mixture in gallon Ziploc bags.
2 1/2 cups
2 (3 ounce) packages
strawberry flavored Jell-O® mix
1 (46 fluid ounce) can
pineapple juice2/3 cup
2 (2 liter) bottles
lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
- Bring the sugar, water, and strawberry flavored gelatin to a boil in a large saucepan; boil for 3 minutes. Stir in the pineapple juice, lemon juice, and orange juice. Divide mixture into 2 separate containers and freeze.
- Combine the contents of 1 container with 1 bottle of the lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage in a punch bowl; stir until slushy. Repeat with remaining portions as needed.
Okay everyone... Thanks for stopping by, and I'm sorry it's been so long!
