Dinosaur Themed Party Bags
Although the Mesozoic era had gone extinct already, the fascinations for dinosaurs are still alive and well in my house. They may be large and some are scary, but my little dinos ones sure love these guys. So if your little kiddo is a fan of these enormous prehistoric creatures and you are currently thinking of throwing a dinosaur birthday party, today’s craft is sure to be a winner!
Today we are creating some dinosaur themed party bags for all of your dinosaur birthday party favors. This DIY project is very easy to make and the materials needed are cheap and can be easily found in any craft stores. Your child can also help in making this one. It will be a perfect addition to the party and a great way to get your child involved in the planning of their party. Sometimes I find that I get so busy planning their parties that I often don’t find opportunities to get my kids involved in the preplanning stages of their parties. I have found over the years that they love to craft as much as I do and they love the chance to contribute, so this could be the perfect opportunity. Are you ready? Gather the supplies now and let’s start.
