Ahh, it’s that time of the year again! That day where our wonderful bundle of joy is turning a year older. How fast one day with them comes to be a month, a month comes to be a year, and a year comes to be years! In their first couple of years, their birthday was somewhat more for us than it was for them because they did not fully understand what was happening even though they may have had fun. Now they are of the age where birthday parties are something that they can remember and they can enjoy and they are genuinely excited about it. So what birthday theme are you leaning towards this year?
Has your child told you explicitly what they want? It’s always easier when they tell you what type of birthday theme they want! If they haven’t told you want they want, a dinosaur-themed birthday is a fabulous idea. Dinosaurs have a very magnetic effect on many children, so it’s a good choice overall. Moreover, not only will it be fun, but you can use a dinosaur-themed birthday party to a full learning experience without them realizing it. Here are Dinomaniacs reasons why a dinosaur themed birthday party is a terrific idea:
Kids love dinosaurs
There are not too many absolutes in life, but kids loving dinosaurs is pretty close to being absolute. Cold-blooded, scaly, reptilian creatures would not usually be something that you think would be beloved by small children, but apparently, our children’s warm-blooded hearts will at one point in time have an interest in dinosaurs. Scientists have observed that many children beginning around 18 months to about 5 years old develop what they call intense interests. Intense interests are when kids develop a near-obsession with certain things, and near the top of that list are dinosaurs. Not only are dinosaurs beloved by kids, but dinosaur parties are also some of the most popular themes in America. Dinomaniacs dinosaur toys can be a perfect complement to a dinosaur-themed party. Our Dino eggs digging game is a party favorite, it allows up to 12 different kids to dig out fossilized dino eggs and find a different dinosaur. Then they can match up the dinosaurs with the corresponding info card. Lastly, they can make balloon dinosaurs and keep them as party favors or as decorations.
Aids with Social Development
Social development in youngsters cannot be overlooked. Social development consists of a large web of skills, but the primary objective is to be able to communicate, cooperate, and form communities with their family and peers. Some forms of social skills are sharing, cooperating, listening, following directions, respecting personal space, making eye contact, and manners. Even though we are social beings, developing social skills can be a challenge for our kiddies because everyone is not the same. Some are more inclined to be outgoing while some are naturally more introverted, but regardless of our children’s personalities and inclinations, each one can develop a healthy set of social skills. What better way to develop social skills than to have a dinosaur-themed party with dinosaur games! When children play, many times they can overcome any challenge they have because the task no longer feels like a task. Dinomaniacs Dino race track is an ideal social skill developer in a party setting. This track requires at least 3 people to enjoy the full experience of creating a dino track. They will need to communicate and cooperate with their peers. It’s a great birthday gift for a 4-year-old boy or girl.
Reinforce their interests and curiosity
If you have multiple children, you know that children go through many phases at a rapid pace, as fleeting as it may seem to adults, each moment is a precious opportunity to support their interests and promote their curiosity. If your child is interested in dinosaurs now, support them to the maximum by reinforcing their love for them, albeit it may be temporary. Reinforcing their interests will subconsciously show them that it’s okay to explore the world we live in. Curiosity in children is the foundation of learning. A child that has parents who reinforce their curiosity will have a higher chance to be an adult that innovates and is confident in trying new things. Even though adulthood is far off for them, each day is an investment towards that and a dinosaur-themed party will be a fun reinforcement for your child.
