Dinosaur Baby Shower Invitation

Invites featuring an adorable baby dinosaur hatching out of its egg announcing the excitement for the arrival of the new baby are perfect for getting everyone excited and ready for the shower.

Dinosaur Baby Shower Decors

Here are some creative decoration ideas to transform your space into a prehistoric adventure for celebrating the upcoming arrival of a little one:

  • Dinosaur Cutouts and Silhouettes: Decorate the walls with large dinosaur cutouts and silhouettes to set the dino theme. You can have T-Rex, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, and other popular dinosaurs.
  • Dinosaur Centerpiece: Create a centerpiece using a dinosaur toy or a toy nest with eggs. Surround it with greenery and smaller dinosaur figures.

  • Dino Footprints Trail: Create a trail of dinosaur footprints leading from the entrance to the main party area. You can use cutouts or stickers of dinosaur footprints.
  • Dinosaur Egg Centerpieces: Use large plastic eggs or DIY papier-mâché eggs to create dinosaur eggs as centerpieces for tables. Decorate the eggs with cracks and a baby dinosaur peeking out.
  • Dinosaur Balloons: Inflate green, brown, and other dinosaur-themed colored balloons and hang them around the party area. You can also use helium-filled dinosaur-shaped foil balloons.

  • Jungle and Greenery: Incorporate a jungle atmosphere by using plenty of greenery, plants, and foliage. Hang vines and leaves around the venue to create a dinosaur habitat.
  • Dino Nesting Area: Create a nesting area using twigs, branches, and leaves where you can place dinosaur eggs and baby dinosaur plush toys.
  • Dinosaur Banner: Hang a dinosaur-themed “Welcome Baby” or “Rawr Means Love” banner.
  • Dino Tales and Facts: Set up small stands or cards around the venue with interesting dinosaur facts and stories for guests to read.
  • Dino Photo Booth: Set up a photo booth area with dinosaur props like hats, masks, and tails for guests to wear while taking pictures.

Dinosaur Welcome Sign

Have a poster-sized welcome sign up at the entrance of the party venue welcoming guests with the image of a gaggle of tiny smiling dinosaurs of all kinds, and have plenty of foliage around in the forms of palms or luscious green plants in general.

Dinosaur Theme Phrases

Have mini chalkboards with fun spins that keep with the theme in phrases such as “Dino-mite”, “Hatching Soon!”, “Rawr!”, or “Boys/Girls Rock!”. Create a banner out of wire and clothespins holding cute baby onesies with dinosaur patterns on them.

Dinosaur Baby Shower Food

Make Life Cute

Have just as much fun with the food creations as you do with the décor, too! For savory, grill or cook up burgers and serve them with large lettuce leaves. Prepare a “Herbivore Salad” by creating a salad with lots of leafy greens, vegetables, and edible flowers, resembling a herbivorous dinosaur’s diet.
Make homemade kale chips and call them “Dino Scales” for a healthy and thematic side dish.


A volcano cake with fondant dinosaurs is a sight, as well as dinosaur pawprint cookies using chocolate or icing, dino egg cake pops, candied eggs with colorful spots, and green-hued themed beverages with the label “Dinosaur Punch”. You can create a green or blue punch using lemon-lime soda and pineapple juice. Add sherbet for a frothy appearance. You can also offer a selection of fruit juices with fun dinosaur-themed labels.

Dinosaur Baby Shower Activity and Games

Planning dinosaur-themed games for a baby shower adds excitement and keeps guests engaged. Remember to have small prizes for the winners of each game.

  • Dino Trivia: Create a trivia game with questions about dinosaurs and their characteristics. Guests can answer on individual sheets, and the person with the most correct answers wins a prize.
  • Dinosaur Egg Hunt: This game idea is perfect if children are attending the event. Hide plastic dinosaur eggs around the venue or backyard. Guests can hunt for them, and the one who finds the most eggs gets a prize.
  • Decorate an Onesie or Bib Station: Lay out dinosaur-themed decals so each guest can create his or her own ONESIE to gift to the mom-to-be.
  • Dinosaur Diaper Derby: Divide guests into teams and have them “diaper” a baby doll or stuffed dinosaur using only one hand. The first team to finish diapering the “baby” wins.

  • Dino Bingo: Create bingo cards with different dinosaur names. Call out dinosaur names, and guests mark them off on their cards. The first one to get bingo shouts “Roar!” and wins a prize.
  • Dino Baby Shower Bingo: Guests fill in bingo cards with potential baby-related gifts. As the mom-to-be opens her gifts, guests mark off items. The first one to get bingo wins.

Dinosaur Baby Shower Favors


Sending guests home with dinosaur-themed baby shower favors is a delightful way to thank them for celebrating the upcoming arrival of the baby. Here are some creative dinosaur-themed favor ideas:

  • Dinosaur Planters or Seeds: Provide mini dinosaur planters or packets of seeds for guests to grow their own mini plants.
  • Dino Cookie Cutters: Provide dinosaur-shaped cookie cutters for guests to use in their own baking adventures.
  • Dino Egg Candies: Fill small bags or containers with candy-coated chocolate eggs and label them as “Dino Eggs.”
