We recently celebrated our littlest mister’s third birthday, and I wanted to share some pictures of his special day. He is dinosaur CRAZED, so the theme was easy for him to pick, and we were so lucky that dinosaurs seem to be everywhere for party favours, decorations and food at the moment.
The biggest difficulty was his dinosaur themed volcano cake that I was adamant I wanted to have erupt because I knew he would be beside himself about it – if I could pull it off. I was lucky enough to find this amazing blog post from Oh So Delicioso on the erupting volcano cake she did for her son using jelly and dry ice. We wanted to have the cake still be edible so wanted to steer away from the bicarb and vinegar option. It worked really well and was such a hit for the party, and most importantly, Smith thought it was the best! On the bottom layer of the cake, we buried white chocolate fossils, which everyone had a lot of fun uncovering as they ate.
I am going to put up video’s of the cake in action over on my Pinterest, and I will link here if you wanted to check it out.
We also had activities set up to entertain the guests, a sandpit full of dinosaur fossils my kiddies made, and we also hid dinosaur eggs around our garden that they could break up using tools and find a dinosaur inside. We were able to get these from Kmart. We also made some eggs by freezing dinosaurs in water balloons filled with frozen water (obviously), which we just cut the balloons off on the day, for them to break up as well – using littlE (and completely safe) plastic chisels.
I wish I had taken more pictures, as we had a lot of signs up with dinosaur puns and the party favours also looked pretty cool. I made dinosaur dough and made labels for some plain bubbles also. We had green raptor juice and pretty much everything I could find on Pinterest, including the party hats for toy dinosaurs.
It was lots of fun to create everything and most importantly, Smith had a wonderful time. I huge thank you to our family and friends for making it so special for him.
