These dinosaur cookies are so easy to make and your guests will love them!
Buy a batch of refrigerated cookie dough (or make from scratch if you are a lover of baking!)
Roll out dough and cut into circles (I use the rim of a glass to make perfect circles.)
Take the foot of a plastic dinosaur and gently press it into each cookie. You can use different types of dinosaurs so the footprints vary. Sprinkle with cinnamon and bake according to directions.
Dinosaur Party Decorations
A cute, easy and affordable dinosaur idea is to trace a dinosaur onto a solid color of card stock or construction paper (Google: "free dinosaur template" and print it onto white cardstock.) Cut the dinosaur out and glue onto a cute patterned sheet of scrapbook paper - place in a frame and use to decorate the baby shower! Make a set of 3 or 4 and - If the new baby's nursery is going to be decorated in dinosaurs - you can give the pictures to the mom-to-be at the end of the shower for her to use in the baby's room. Cute, affordable, easy .. and they double as decorations and a gift at the same time!
Make a cute door sign that says "Caution: Dinosaur Crossing" - you can even add caution tape to the door
Serve molten lava cakes for dessert! You can buy the boxed version in the baking section of your grocery store.
Make deviled eggs and label them "dinosaur eggs"
Use Cookie Cutters To Transform Your Shower:
Using dinosaur-shaped cookie cutters, cut cheeses and fruit into fun dinosaur shapes
Make dinosaur cut-out cookies by making sugar cookies and cutting them into the shape of a dinosaur using a dinosaur cookie cutter. Serve on a platter as snacks at the shower, or bundle them up in a cellophane bag and tie a cute ribbon and favor tag on them to hand out as favors!
You can also use dinosaur cookie cutters to cut out sandwiches
Hop over to your local dollar store and scoop up some plastic cups and dinosaurs. Glue onto each cup to make a handle. Use at the baby shower for drinks and then send each guest home with one as a cute dinosaur baby shower party favor!
The best glue to use for crafts like this is E6000 - it is waterproof and holds just about anything together.
Grab some small plastic dinosaurs at the dollar store
spray paint them in colors to match the baby shower
glue onto empty jars - such as baby food jars
spray paint the lids of the jars as well
fill jars with baby shower favors such as bath salts, sugar scrubs, jelly beans, chocolates, etc.
add a cute favor tag - and you're done! (we have free tags here)
update: I found some colored dinosaurs that may save you from having to spray paint them (although you may still have to spray paint the lids of the jars, unless they are all silver and look cute.)
Dinosaur Themed Gifts
One of my favorite gifts to give mom's with small children, are these personalized labels from Mabel's Labels. They are cute, waterproof, and are perfect for labeling bottles, toys, lunches, etc. - these are a lifesaver for those with kids in daycare!
