Kids Guide To Vikings + Dragons Riders Of Berk Part 1 & 2 DVD Giveaway @FHEInsiders

"The following Kids Guide was provided to me as a member of the Fox Ent. Insiders blogging program for the purposes of sharing with my readers.  The DVD set for giveaway is also provided by Fox Ent.Insiders program. No monetary compensation was received for this post."

One of the things I love doing as a Mom is family movie night.  The kids all pick a movie and we spend the entire evening vegging out watching them with snacks.  It's a relaxing way to spend an evening and enjoy each others company.  When Dragons Riders of Berk came I knew I'd be watching them with Miss E and Mr.C.  I  grabbed some M&M's at the store to add to our popcorn and I was ready. (Review coming soon stay tuned).

Vikings at Sea

Not all Vikings travel by dragons like they do in Berk! Vikings built great, big boats called 
longs hips for war. Each one could carry at least 60 men.  Even though they were so 
large, Vikings long ships were designed to be speedy and could move through the water much
faster than other boats.

  Viking Clothes

Vikings from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden dress a lot like Vikings from Berk,
but with more layers. To stay warm in the cold winters, Vikings wore clothes
made of wool, animal skin, or linen and shoes made of thick leather or goatskin.
In battle, they wore helmets made of leather or iron.

Viking Homes

Vikings really knew how to make the most of their surroundings! Houses were
built of stone, mud, and blocks of turf. They made thatched roofs from woven
sticks covered in mud. Vikings probably wouldn’t let dragons sleep in their
houses the way Toothless does!

Viking Children

The Vikings in Berk get to go to the Dragon Academy to learn about how to become better dragon trainers. Instead of going to school, real Viking kids stayed home to help their parents work. Even without school and books, children could learn about history through songs and stories passed down from the older members of the town.

Viking Food

The dragons in Berk eat fish, veggies, and bread given to them by their riders. Vikings ate similar foods, but also enjoyed meat from farm animals or wild animals that they would hunt. They drank out of wooden cups or drinking horns. Sometimes they had feasts for festivals that would last over a week!
