Transport your guests back to the prehistoric era with a dinosaur-themed party! Whether you’re celebrating a birthday party or hosting a shindig for the dinosaur enthusiasts in your life, we have eight roaring ideas you’ll be able to make with your Cricut!

Dino birthday invitations

Invitations are a precursor to a party and give a glimpse of what the party will be about. So these dinosaur birthday invites are perfect to send to give a hint of the celebration to come. We used Cricut Insert Cards and fine point pens to create these fun invites!

T-rex t-shirt

Now that invites are out of the way, it’s time to decide what to wear. For this birthday t-rex shirt, all you’ll need is iron-on vinyl in a few colors, including holographic sparkle for that extra pop!

Cupcake toppers

Deck out your dessert table by topping off store-bought or homemade cupcakes with prehistoric cake toppers. You’ll just need some cardstock, preferably in the colors of your party theme, adhesive and sucker sticks to create these!

Candy holders

Little treat bags make great party favors. This project uses cardstock to create an adorable triceratops that holds candy in its belly. Overall, these are sure to be a hit!

Party activities

Sometimes coming up with activities for a party can be difficult, especially if you want the party to be fun. A lot of the time simple activities are the most fun, and what’s more simple than coloring pages? Everyone from age 3 to 93 will love these dinosaur coloring pages!

Party wall décor

Having some dinosaur décor is also important when it comes to throwing a great party. So what better way than some dino wall art? All you’ll need is a frame and some cardstock, and it will sure to be a hit! And if you don’t want to keep it after the party, you can always gift it to a dino loving friend!

Triceratops shirts

Have everyone channel their inner paleontologist with this triceratops skeleton shirt. And what’s a party without some themed shirts? Infusible ink pens are used to sketch the intricate details of this shirt.

Dino window cling

If you’re wanting to up your party décor just a little bit more, window clings can be a good start. Windows are often overlooked for parties since they are hard to decorate, but if you have a Cricut, you can use that space to your advantage. And you’ll be able to have a whole herd of dinosaurs on your windows with these fun dinosaur window clings.

So whether you’re throwing a dinosaur themed party, or just attending one, these projects are a great place to start! If you create any of these projects, make sure to tag #cricut on social media so we can see all the things you’ve made!
