I was so excited when Ms M decided she wanted a dinosaur birthday party. My brain went into overload at the options that we had.
Should it be a paleontology party where the kids dressed up for a dig, and we would search for dinosaur bones?
Should it be a “live” dinosaur party with dino costumes and dino games?
Oh, but even better, what if I could convince N to have a dino party too. It could be the best of both worlds. M could have the “live” dino party and at the end of the party we could have an (fake) asteroid crash. Then 6 months (or millions of years) later N could have the palaeontology party. Eeeek! How awesome would that be?!
Alas, I could not convince N that this was the best idea ever. His heart was set on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Sigh.
So, back to M’s party. Since I couldn’t decide between paleontology and “live” dinos, I’d just have to do both!
I wanted the invitation to have both “live” dinosaurs and fossil dinos. But I couldn’t find a realistic dino stamp anywhere. So I used some clip art printed on card stock instead. Then I cut them out using Patertrey Ink’s Slider die.
The dinosaurs are all in a roar
is turning four!
Help us make history on
If you dig dinosaurs,
stomp on over to NAME-a-saur’s house
It’s going to be a DINO-MITE time,
but it will soon be extinct.

** please leave your large asteroids at home
With the invitations done it was time to move on to the party decorations.
