What to expect at a Dippy the Dino Party

  • You'll have time to set up any personal decorations and food (if self-catering) before the party people arrive.
  • Once everyone's arrived it's time to see Dippy! Hear a short talk from a Dippy expert who is on hand to answer all of your little one's questions!
  • It's time for a group photo with Dippy before the party goers can have a go at making a clay dino sculpture to take home! Enjoy some hands on creative time whilst making a fab keepsake to remind them of the fun they've had. 
  • Enjoy a photo opp with an inflatable Dippy before party food, cake and the Happy Birthday song!
