I mentioned when we launched our dinosaur birthday party collection that my youngest has already claimed it for his upcoming birthday party. With that in mind, I went in search of favor ideas over the weekend.

I really like the dinosaur dig ideas (upper left from Toys To Grow On, lower left from eBay) for the activity. Our guests will be in the 3-5 age range so we’ll likely go with the sand version and then let them take their finds home. But for older kids, the Tricerotops excavation is very cool.

If I didn’t already have foam puzzle dinosaurs in primary colors to match the table decor, this Knex Dino Pal (upper right) would possibly be worked into the decor (maybe at the beverage station). As is, it may still end up as a gift for my little one. {wink}

Oh, and we must have the dino masks. I found these at Oriental Trading, but you may be able to score some at your local craft store.

And I ran across a few more cake/cupcake  ideas I liked too. This very fun fondant dinosaur cupcake is from Nevie Pie Cakes on Flikr. For those of you who’ve never used fondant, don’t let it intimidate you. You can tint and mold it into anything you like. Just make a tasty cupcake, because the fondant won’t be (at least in my opinion). And the cake is from Pink Apron on Flikr. I really like the layered effect with the child’s name spelled out in cookies. Hmmm… we’ll see. I’m still undecided.
