Let’s move on to the finale of the party, the dino egg hunt!
Instead of the usual sweets-filled loot bag, I wanted the kids to be able to choose which souvenir they get to take home. Instead of just lining up, I want Aki’s friends to be more involved. Treasure hunts are always a big hit with Aki so I was sure that his classmates would also love this activity.
We placed plastic eggs with growing dino babies around the playground. These dino babies are the coolest. Submerge them in water and in a few hours, they grow at least 5X in size. Amazing. We are still playing with ours weeks after the party. Best of all, they are so affordable. I got 24 pieces for only 60 bucks in Divisoria.
Here is my tindahan aka prize showcase. I made a guide there on the corresponding prize per color of egg. In the end, the kids just chose which prize to take home.
All prizes, except for the Booksale books were bought in Divisoria. Binoculars for only 6.50 bucks a piece. Magnifying glass for 60 pesos for 20 pieces. I recycled brown paper bags by attaching straw handles and a thank you tag.
The kids loved their binoculars
Ready, get set, go!
I was surprised that the dino briefs and insect toys, which I was supposed to use for a fossil activity, got a lot of giggles too.
Happy birthday, Akoy!
