I love themed activities. Which is probably no secret if you’ve read my blog for any length of time. DIY projects and recipes centered around holidays, movies, and more is my jam.

Jurassic Dirt Pudding Cups - this dino-themed dirt pudding cups recipe is perfect for a dinosaur birthday party or just a fun treat for the kiddos!

So with this being Bubbles’ second full week of summer vacation, I thought it was time for a theme week, and the easy choice was dinosaurs. She is minorly obsessed with all things dino, and with the new Jurassic World movie in theaters, the timing was perfect.

To kick off Dino Week, we decided to make these Jurassic Dirt Pudding Cups. They are easy enough that kids can help (or even make them solo), and tasty enough that adults will enjoy eating them, too.

Bubbles has developed a real love of cooking and baking, so she had fun putting these together. She was extra proud to serve them as our family dessert later that night.

We topped these with some little dinosaur toys from Dollar Tree, and ferns from one of her LEGO sets. But you could also add candy rocks, gummy worms or gummy dinos – whatever you like!
