My son and I are HUGE fans of the How to Train Your Dragon book series. Last year when the 12th and final book came out, we celebrated by putting together a HTTYD Fan Club where all the local fans could get together and bond over their shared interest in the books.
We created a lot of fun activities and games for fan club members to enjoy, and we want to share them with you.

This was a low-mess sensory bin, designed to help fan club members of various age groups be able to play together.
This game was essentially Jenga with a HTTYD twist. Click the link above to get the free download and directions to assemble your own.
This was our most popular game at fan club meetings. Click the link above to get the free download.
I included this game as a means of talking about some of the historical inaccuracies in the books and to encourage an interest in the Norse. Click the link above to get the free download.
Essentially Battleship with a HTTYD twist, this game was a fun way to include the map of the Barbaric Archipelago. Click the link above to get the free download and directions to assemble your own.
By using dice, we turned a simple writing prompt activity into a game of chance. It was simple enough and open ended enough that it became a fun way to introduce students to the idea of writing their own fan-fic. Click the link above to get the free download.
Other things we had our fan club meetings that were a lot of fun….
HTTYD coloring pages and HTTYD drawing grids and HTTYD how many words can you find in…. pages.
Hard copies of all the How To Train Your Dragon books in the series, as well as digital copies of the audio books read by David Tennant.
And a memory/matching game that we made by downloading some dragon species cards and printing out two copies of each card.
Also (not pictured) we made Viking Shields and helmets.
