Created January 10, 2017
From dinosaur sandwiches to prehistoric punch, our menu guide features quick and easy party foods that kids will actually eat. And best of all, most of it can be pulled together the day before, leaving you more time to enjoy the party.
Dinosaur Party Foods

Stegosaurus Sandwiches

Keep things simple yet festive with classic ham and cheese sandwiches cut into dinosaur shapes. Tip: Buy a giant loaf of bread at your local bakery and slice at an angle to ensure each piece is large enough to fit the shape of your cookie cutter.

Veggies & Bog Dip

Crisp, colorful veggies are more fun to eat with bog dip for the dunking. To make, simply stir drops of green food coloring into prepared ranch dressing until you reach the shade you like, and finish with a sprinkle of chives.


Rex the Dinosaur Cake

Creating this colorful tyrannosaurus cutout cake is easy with help from Betty Crocker cake mix, ready-made frosting and chocolate candies. Our how-to video takes you through each step while our cake template makes cutting out the pieces a snap.


Dinosaur Eggs

A mix of green grapes, honeydew melon balls and kiwi give the illusion of three different kinds of dino eggs while a plant liner (fitted with a clear bowl to protect the eggs!) provides the perfect nest. 

Prehistoric Punch

What kid can resist this punch’s bright fluorescent color and pineapple-lime flavor? Serve it up with striped straws for double the fun.


Brontosaurus Bones

Made from pretzel rods and Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix, these fossilized bronto bones are the perfect mix of salty and sweet.
