Still time for summer adventure

The summer is halfway over for many of us (maybe more than halfway for others!). Have you lost your momentum for creating some fun and adventure? Are the kids glued to the television? Even if they are, there are ways to get their creative side out with inspiration from the shows you're watching.

This summer Netflix introduced a new original series: Dragons: Race to the Edge. Sound somewhat familiar? It includes Hiccup and Toothless from How to Train Your Dragons film. To get ready to watch the television show, try coming up with some crafts (or let you kids do the brainstorming) for snacks and props you can use while watching the show or acting out scenes during play time.

Need some ideas?

Make labels like "Dragon Scales" or "Dragon Claws" to put on bags of Doritos or Bugles. Use inflatable or plastic swords (do you have those around from Halloween or in the dress-up bin?). Make your own dragon wings with a black blanket or pantyhose stretched over bent hangers. Draw dragons and castles with sidewalk chalk on the driveway. Make some JELL-O Jigglers dragon eyes (I did some Halloween ones a few years back that fit the bill - check out the eyes - they're just like the dragon's!).

Of course you can come up with creative ideas for any TV show or movie. What are your ideas?
