Can I pick your brains, dinosaur party theme.

My almost 5 year old has decided she wants a 'girly' dinosaur themed birthday. I've been stalking pintrest, and have a few ideas for food, but am struggling on party bag ideas. We're having a bouncy castle, so hopefully that will keep 25 kids entertained for 2 hours!
I'm just looking for ideas for party bags, and maybe easy decoration ideas. Thanks

I don't see much difference between a dinosaur party and a "girly" dinosaur party except perhaps the color scheme. Also, not sure how much your daughter enjoys arts and crafts, but some decor ideas can double as activities and party favors. Here are some things I found on the internet:

Excavating Dinos
1)Get a bag of small toy dinos (skeletal or not) from the dollar store/nearest equivalent
2)Bury them in a container with sand/dirt/ice and have the kids dig/excavate them with little water/air pipettes, paint brushes, etc. (the kids can take home their toy)
2b)Or you could put the dino in playdough and shape into an egg. Have a hatching station. :P

You could also have them make a dino medallion by making an imprint of their toy in salt dough. Once dry, they can decorate/color them.

Balloons and streamers
1)Get some green streamers and hang them from the ceiling
2)Blow up some balloons and add paper dino parts to them then hang them from the ceiling too (if you make enough, or need prizes for something, let all/some kids take them home)

You could additionally make some balloon/string eggs that contain a toy dino and hang those as well.

Cut some tissue paper leaves, string them up along the wall above a massive diosaur coloring station. Kids who attend the party can help color it in then daughter can keep it as a mural for her room.

Photo Booth
1) Have the kids make masks and dino feet, or perpare some ahead of time
2) Take photos of the kids wearing them

Alternativly, have a dino face painting station with photos!

Other Favors
1) Dino party hats
2) Dino crayons (you'd have to buy a mold in which to remelt crayon peices)
3) Dino egg candy (jelly beans or the like)
