Activities that promote play always make a party more memorable and more exciting to be a part of. For How To Train Your Dragon party games, we looked to the movie for inspiration!

 After some mom-led Viking warm-ups (really, this was for the amusement of those of us watching), we were on to the fun!

Yes, the warm-ups were just that good.

The Official Berk Sheep Toss Game

The first five minutes of the How to Train Your Dragon 2 movie was awesome for the sheep game they were playing, rolling through the sky on their dragons.  You couldn’t help but laugh at the expressions of the sheep being thrown around. While we had to leave out the dragons, we did get to keep the sheep!

You can see the sheep toss party game tutorial here.

All the baskets were labeled with a colored dragon picture. It was the Viking’s job to toss as many sheep in their own basket as they could, and they got double points for getting the black sheep in their own basket. We found the game worked best with just two playing at the same time.

A few poles were set up to outline the course, and each of our racers were given a handmade “dragon” to race with. We ran the race in waves so everyone could get a chance to go. how to train your dragon party-110how to train your dragon party race wave 2how to train your dragon party race finisherhow to train your dragon party-162how to train your dragon part mini figures

All the winners and participants got their own dragon pet – a How to Train Your Dragon Mini Figurine (available in Target stores)- when they crossed the finish line as a prize. All the kids were instantly best friends with these little guys.
