We are so excited to announce the release of Birthday Express' latest party theme >> Jurassic World! Yes, finally a great looking classic party designed especially for boys. Although there is absolutely no reason this theme would not work equally well for dinosaur obsessed girls!
And yes, it has been a long time since the last Jurassic Park movie, but pint-sized paleontologists are in luck: the dinosaurs are back in the latest Jurassic World movie. So if you are looking for a great way to kick off your summer activities consider an outing to a late morning movie followed by an afternoon of structured educational play that looks and feels more like a party >> A Jurassic World Dinosaur Party!
The Jurassic World Movie Plot
Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park (1993), Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor's interest, which backfires horribly. The freshly minted hybrid dinosaur known as Indominus rex, will surely capture the attention of kids of all ages as he wreaks havoc on the park and velociraptor behaviorist Owen Grady, played by Chris Pratt, tries to stop the destruction.
Jurassic World Dinosaur Party Ideas
Jurassic World Dinosaur Party Invitations
Remember your invitation sets the tone for the entire party — even before the party begins invitations create a sense of anticipation. Think of all the time your own child spends looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.
Since you are tying the party into the movie, we recommend sticking with the official Jurassic World Invitation!
If you are not so into licensed products, here are a few other dinosaur invitations that might strike your fancy. We have intentionally not included any really “cutesy” dinosaur invitations >> they simply are not fierce enough.

Jurassic World Dinosaur Party Activities
Together research flying dinosaurs >> learn everything you can about them!
Now have some high flying fun with these Jurassic World Gliders!
Be sure to leave plenty of time for imaginative play!
A few days before your party, submerge this Ginormous Hatch n' Grow Dino egg under cool water. Let it sit for 48-72 hours. Once the dinosaur breaks out of it shell, replace the water and it will grow some more! With four possible dinosaurs you never know what will come out. Not only will your child begin to understand the concept of hatching, you now have a great decor accessory for your buffet table to!
Who says decorating eggs needs to be limited to Easter time? Kids love to color eggs all year long so let the fun begin. Not only will your children improve on their eye hand coordination, they will always remember that dinosaurs are reptiles and hatch from eggs! After the arts and crafts project you can either hide hard boiled eggs whole or crack uncooked eggs and insert baby dinosaurs so the kids are delighted when they discover their eggs have actually hatched. Another idea – serve your colored eggs to eat!
Sticking with the egg theme >> children love relay races! This egg relay game includes everything you need for 5 teams!
A dinosaur parade will bring out the beast within your children but will make for some fun video footage!
And finally, all PIP parties end with the breaking of the piñata! A Jurassic World Party is no exception 🙂
