DIY Dinosaur Treat Jar Party Favors

Send guests home from your child's birthday party with these roaring dinosaur treat jars - perfect for a dino theme party!

DIY party favors needn't be complicated or expensive to make in order to be a hit with little birthday party guests. You can create a DIY birthday party favor that's both memorable and affordable - it just takes a bit of creativity!

I’m gearing up for a dinosaur themed birthday party for my little paleontologist-wanna-be, and planning this party has been a blast! To create a Dinosaur birthday party favor, just use your left over dinosaur toys from the dinosaur wreath tutorial I shared to create party favor treat jars for your guests to take home. Add gumballs or jellybeans to the jars to look like dinosaur eggs. These jars will look great displayed on the cake table as part of the décor.

  • Plastic Miniature Dino Toys
  • Super Glue
  • 1/2 Pint Mason Jars
  • Sandpaper
  • Spray Paint
  • Gumballs

Step 1: Sand the top of the mason jar lid.

Step 2: Super glue a plastic dino toy to the mason jar lid.

Step 3: Spray paint the entire lid and dinosaur toy with 3-4 light coats of your desired color. Allow to dry.

Step 4: Fill the mason jar with gumballs and attach the spray painted dinosaur lid. Hand out as party favors.
