your hand on as many different TV sets that you can and place
them around your party/facility/event. On each of the sets,
play a different prehistoric themed movie. They can either
be old classics such as The Land the Time Forgot, to more
light hearted ones such as Caveman (Ringo Starr) to more of
the thriller type such as any from the Jurassic Park series.
Check your local library in their DVD collection. While you
are there, you might also check their documentary videos for
some dinosaur videos. These are GREAT to have being played
during your party! The great part about this is that you don't
even need to have the volume on (in fact, especially for adult
parties where the guests will probably more enjoy their conversations
more than the videos
THROW AWAY THE PARTY DECORATIONS! - Save money and do something
your guests will LOVE! GIVE AWAY your party decorations! Use
dinosaur posters (see below for inexpensive resources) to
hang around your party area. Allow the winners of different
games to choose which poster they'll get to walk away with
at the conclusion to the party! Combine decorations with party
fun great looking table centerpieces, visit your local library
and check out some dinosaur books and arrange them with the
books standing up, half open so that their pages can be quasi-seen.
is a great game that can passively last throughout the entire
party. Print out several pictures of different dinosaurs on
paper (see the Decorations section for resource ideas on obtaining
images.) On each of the sheets of paper, write a different
number or name bold enough to see easily. Place them throughout
the party area, however, do not place all of them in easily
found locations. Some of them can be in plain view (so that
everyone can find a few) but most hide a bit out of site.
Provide for each of your guests to have a copy of a list of
all the images to find. Next to each of the image names, they
are to write the number/name provided on each image sheet.
The goal is to be the first to fill in all the answers by
either knowing them outright, finding the poster or combinations
thereof. You can also instruct them that all completed sheets
can be turned in to you by a certain time, then a raffle can
be held among all that are turned in for a prize. A third
variation would be to offer a raffle ticket for each correct
answer (the more they answer, the better chance they'll have
to win a prize at the raffle.)
prehistoric palm trees from tall halogen lights and coat/hat
stands. Cover the poles in brown packing paper for a tree
trunk brown color. Fronds can be made from large sheets of
construction paper, poster board, or purchased at wholesale
