For this dino dig you will just need sand, a large container (a kiddie pool could work for larger parties) some dinosaur toys and shovels and brushes.

Break out your Easter eggs for a dinosaur egg hunt! Fill just a few eggs with miniature dinosaur toys and then hide them with some empty eggs outside for a fun spin on a scavenger hunt.

We used food coloring to dye some vanilla icing green to give the illusion that our T-rex cake topper (we got ours from Etsy for $25) was stomping around in the grass. Use chocolate rocks on the top and sides of the cake to complete the outdoor feel.

Don’t forget your veggies! Fill cups with a dollop of Ranch dressing and some carrots, peppers, celery and broccoli for a healthy option.
