How to Make Your Child's Celebration Eco-Friendly and Fun!

Are you planning a dinosaur themed party? Well, you're in luck because we've got some great ideas for you! Dinosaurs are obviously a favorite among kid’s parties, but it’s also a great moment for sustainable party choices. 

Dinosaurs are fascinating, megalithic creatures that roamed the Earth millions of years ago, and their extinction holds many lessons about the health of our planet. By choosing a dinosaur theme, you can spark an interest in our changing planet in young minds.

A sustainable party also means making choices that reduce waste and minimize harm to the environment. Single-use plastic is far too common in the events industry. Here are some tips on how to put on the best sustainable dinosaur party.

Make plastic extinct.

Plastic is one of the biggest (and enduring) pollutants of our planet. So avoid using plastic tablecloths, cutlery, balloons, and those cheap mass-produced plastic party favors. (We parents know how quickly they end up in the pile of forgotten toys). Instead, opt for eco-friendly options such as reusable or compostable plates, cups, and utensils, like Bambu’s disposable bamboo straws!

The best-looking party supplies.

Dinosaur-themed party supplies made from sustainable materials not only “do a planet good,” but they look great for a fun party aesthetic. Meri Meri and Wrappily are two great brands that offer chic eco-friendly options. (Felt dinosaur garland and popping jungle-theme wrapping paper on recycled and recyclable newsprint — YES PLEASE!)

Don't forget to include the Jurassic-inspired Boxed Water cartons – they're 100% recyclable and made from renewable resources, with an assortment of six designs featuring fan-favorite dinosaurs from the Jurassic World franchise.

DIY decorations can be a fun and sustainable way to add some flair to your party. Check out this paper plate dinosaur craft project from Made to be A Momma and these DIY fossils from Make Life Lovely. Kids will love making their own prehistoric creatures and fossils, and it's a great way to reuse materials that you may already have at home.
