The number one party theme for 2019 is How to Train Your Dragon! Okay, I made that up … but based on the number of kids I see wearing Toothless hoodies at my son's elementary school, I just know your kids are gonna be asking for a How to Train Your Dragon birthday party. I've rounded up the absolute best DIY party ideas to help you throw a killer HTTYD celebration for your little dragon trainer.

Why a Basic Dragon Party Isn't Gonna Fly

Your kids know that a basic dragon or that old guy Puff are NOT the same the dragons from HTTYD.  Kids know all about Gronckle, Toothless, and Light Fury so you need to bring your A-game to this party planning process.

  1. Your ideas are totally awesome. I will use a lot of them. I love making the items myself (with help from the grandkids). Much more fun than buying a “Party-in-a-Box” – style nonsense. There’s so much enjoyment in the planning and constructing: even the “Party-kid” can participate. Makes for a much more personal experience for everyone.

    Thank you so much for your hard work. I’m sure you enjoy it too. Your dedication and love shine through. Best wishes, Helen
