How To Train Your Dragons 2 Movie Night Crafts and Fun! #DragonsInsiders #HTTYD2

"As a Fox Home Entertainment Insider we received How to Train Your Dragons 2 on blu-ray dvd and a promotional movie night kit for sharing. All opinions are our own and no other compensation was received."  

Oh boy are we ever ready to have a fun How to Train your Dragons 2 movie night.  Coming on Friday , November 14th I know my son will be super thrilled to share Dragons with family and friends. He so loves his Dragons.  I love movie night whether it is just us or some of the friend gang.  C is 5 and his friends are 5 and under so we like to keep activities very kid friendly and simple.  A must have on movie night is popcorn .  Luckily we have just had Halloween and have lots of leftover candy so the candy bar will also be open.

Getting Ready for How to Train Your Dragons 2 Movie Night
Before we turn on the movie I thought a fun dragon craft would be the perfect addition to our party. We made these Dragon Cups.  They are very simple and in expensive to make . You are using a paper cup .

Simple Paper Plate and Paper Cup Dragon Crafts

 photo paperplatedragon.jpg photo PaperCupDragonCraft.jpg For the Paper plate dragon craft  you will need the following materials;
  •  smaller dessert size paper plates
  • paint
  • google eyes (I love these yellow ones we used)
  • tissue paper strips (again you could use just orange or red tissue paper to  make it a fire breathing dragon if you'd like)
  • glue 
  • scissors
First, glue one small paper plate to the side of the larger one for the head.
Then, attach 2 smaller ones to the opposite side for the tail end (see photo)
Add your eyes. 
Glue tissue paper strips for the tail. Add tissue paper spikes if you like. 
Let your littles paint the plates. Mine chose his dragon to be green (why of course). 
Glue on google eyes.

For the Paper Cup Dragon  (thank you to Here Comes The Girls Blog for sharing a photo of how to make a paper cup dragon.) 

you will need all of the materials listed above plus:
  • any color of paper cup

Tips: Precut the tissue paper strips and cut out the cup bottoms

Next in preparation for our Dragons movie night we thought it would be fun to have some Dragon Decoration.  We made a simple paper plate dragon to hang up by the snack table. 

Have Fun!
