Dinosaurs are hot with the under five crowd and have been for the past few decades. With that kind of staying power, it is amazing that the real dinosaurs are extinct. Luckily, birthday supplies for a dinosaur party theme are not in any way close to extinction. In fact, the big problem is deciding which of the many supplies to buy, since you can't have them all at one celebration.
The Land Before Time series has its own line of party supplies. If your little tyke is a fan of Sara, Little Foot and the rest of the gang, your party will virtually plan itself. Rent several DVDs and set up a mini movie theater in one corner of the room. Buy plates, cups, napkins, a tablecloth, hats and noisemakers covered with images of this cuddly dinosaur gang. Pick up Land Before Time stickers for their goodie bags. Then, raid your child's toy box for some of those adorable plush nine inch reproductions of the dinosaurs and use them as a centerpiece for the table. Add a cake with Little Foot's image on it and get ready to party like it is the Cretaceous Era.
If your child prefers more realistic dinosaurs, there are plenty of other options. Besides all the plates and other basic supplies, you can shop for personalized banners, costumes and cookies to decorate. Items for the treat bags range from squirters to small handheld video games, all with a dinosaur theme.
