A few months back, I was casually chatting with my kiddos about their upcoming birthday parties. Mr. Monster mentioned his theme choice, and it lined up perfectly with what I was already mentally planning. Little Miss, however, threw me for a loop. She wanted a Dragons Race To The Edge Party.
My sweet little girl, who loved every minute of her very girlie princess party, wanted a party based off of a TV show that involved some very non-girlie dragons. Sure she loved watching the show, but she didn’t run around the house pretending to be Dragon Racers. I was initially stumped…but completely up to the challenge.
If you’ve ever seen the Netflix show, then you know that a Dragons Race To The Edge party would be based off of the characters from the How to Train your Dragon movies. So the characters are pretty well known. I wanted to make sure that the party involved the characters, but mostly I think she just wanted a Dragon party. So not all of the dragons necessarily looked like a specific character in the show.
A Cake for our Dragons Race To The Edge Party
The Toothless cake was the closest thing the party got to a character in the show.
Food fit for Dragons
When I was planning the food, I felt like it was missing a fun play on the theme, so when I dug into the watermelon, I decided to make it in the shape of a dragon. This watermelon dragon was my first attempt at carving a watermelon. I felt very proud of my accomplishment.
Dragon Racers Activity
The activity was the best part of the party. In the show and movies, the characters ride their dragons. I wanted to make a way for Little Miss and her friends to ride dragons too. So I let them each create their own dragon and “ride” it around the yard.
The activity wasn’t without its hitches, but it was definitely a success. You can read all about it very soon!
Over the food table, I hung what was originally supposed to be a dragon.
In the end, I think it looked more like a bat, but Little Miss didn’t mind. She loved every minute of her Dragons Race To The Edge Party.
I love how this was fun for every single kid! The younger kids and older kids all had a blast!
