Dinosaur Party Decorations
When decorating your party the motif is the visual
representation of your theme, which is created by the use of objects or
symbols. This symbol may be repeated on your invitations, program, plates, or
decorations. Sometimes the use of several different symbols will be used
as components of the theme.
Develop the motif for your dinosaur party by using a list of words related to
a Dinosaur theme. Brainstorm a list to create your pool of
ideas. This list is very important for generating ideas that can
be applied to all areas of the party.
Here are a few words to get you
started: Volcano, forests, flowering plants, ferns, horsetails,
palms, prehistoric animals, toy dinosaur figures, Raptor eggs,
Dinosaur bones, trees (Ficus, Pine), vines, sea grasses, rocks, sand,
water, fossils, prehistoric flying creatures.
If you use a dinosaur theme
incorporate items from your list of words like: plants, flowers,
trees, vines, volcanoes into your decorating and include a variety of colors and textures
(rocks, sand, bones).

and cut it into ragged strips of varying lengths. You can easily

Dinosaur Bones & Fossils
Make your very own dinosaur bones from cardboard tubes,
newspaper, water and flour. Crumble up some newspaper into balls
and tape to the ends of a small or large cardboard tubes. Make a
simple, thin glue from flour and water (boiling gives it a nice
consistency). Mix 1 cup of flour into 1 cup of water until the
mixture is thin and runny. Stir into 4 cups of boiling water.
Simmer for about 3 minutes, then cool. (You can make this glue
without cooking it, but it isn't as smooth that way.) Tear a lot
of strips of newspaper and/or brown bag paper. Strips should be
about 1 inch wide; the length doesn't really matter. Dip a
newspaper strip into the cooled glue, then wrap it around the
dinosaur bone. Cover the entire bone, then let it dry (it may
take a day or more to dry). When dry, paint the bone. You now
have a great dinosaur fossil!
and Dinosaur Standees are sure to
create a stir. They’re baaaack!
Tie bows with green mottled gossamer across the top of each chair back.
The bows can be cut to any length, and even look great with
tails trailing on the floor. Make bows to hang anywhere and
everywhere…stair rails, deck posts or gift packages. The
gossamer also looks terrific covering a cake board, or as a
cover for the food table.
