“Dinosaur Eggs” | Kid’s Loot Bags

Let’s look back at our very first post, 4 years ago this month!

A great idea for a dinosaur-themed birthday party. Use these as party favours on their own, or add them to loot bags!

In Stephanie’s words, “For my son’s third birthday, he really wanted to have a dinosaur birthday party. I needed a few cute dinosaur things to fill the loot bags. I whipped up these easy “dinosaur egg” packages to accompany some dinosaur stickers, plastic mini dinosaur toys and chocolate dinosaur lollipops.”

And then I thought, why not get crafty? So I whipped up some basic, construction paper bunting. This is so easy, and can be used for a myriad of occasions, including birthdays, celebrations, and personal declarations for Valentine’s Day (e.g. I LOVE [lover’s name here] displayed prominently in your front window to embarrass your spouse)!

For my son’s game-themed birthday this year, I decided to roll the dice and create this pinata.
