When Kids Throw a Dinosaur a Birthday Party...This Happens

[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"39692","attributes":{"class":"media-image","typeof":"foaf:Image","style":"","alt":"Dino Birthday exterior"}}]]When we needed help planning Dinosphere's 10th birthday party, we went straight to the experts—kids! For two weeks in March and April we brought 17 of your amazing dinosaur birthday party ideas to life. See all of the ideas below, or watch the videos to see the ideas in action, including: fireworks (and Nova's reaction), Bucky LIVES!, singing Happy Birthday, dino dress up, a roaring contest, a Rex April Fools' joke, and a dino-themed parade. Plus—don't miss the full photo album on Facebook!

And it wasn't just kids that helped us party like a dino. On March 12, museums and organizations from all over the world helped us kick off Dinosphere's birthday celebration with the #PartyLikeADino Twitter party. Over 30 organizations and friends tweeted gifts and greetings to Dinosphere in six countries and four languages! See it all in this Storify.

Thank you to everyone who helped us party like a dino this Spring Break. You made it a dino-sized birthday we won't forget!
