Dragon Week Giveaway and Fun For the Whole Family

Dragon Week Giveaway and Fun For the Whole Family

Summer has sped by. It’s hard to believe it’s the end of July! Before you know it you’ll be doing back to school shopping. No, quit! (sound of squeeling brakes) Let’s relax and think of dragons. Dragons: those fun creatures that spew fire, attack villages, have riders, spread luck, bring danger. Yeah, those guys. They’re the biggest preditors out there. So, Fellowship of Fantasy has decided to devote a whole week to them.

Fun for the Family

Dragon Movies

It all started on Monday, but you can catch up by doing multiple things a day. Watch your favorite dragon movie like How to Train Your Dragon or Dragonheart. If you have older kids, you might want to watch The Hobbit. Oh, one I’ve not seen yet is the new version of Pete’s Dragon. Have fun, and then tell me what you watched.

Dragon Books

Read a book about dragons, either to your kids or for your own enjoyment. There’s the classics of The Neverending Story with Falcor the luck dragon, The Dragon Rider with Firedrake by Cornelia Funke, The Pern series by Anne McCaffrey, or The Hobbit (in my opinion so much better than the movie). Another option is to go with some Indie reads.

  1. Cora and the Nurse Dragon by H. L. Burke
  2. Dragonfriend by Marc Secchia
  3. Mercy’s Prince by Katy Huth Jones
  4. Magic is to Dance by A. J. Bakke
  5. Dragon Airways by Brian Rathbone
  6. The Dragon Courage series by Kandi J Wyatt
  7. Minstrel’s Song series by Janelle Schmidt

Dragon Hoard

Summer always was the yearly cleanout for my kids’ rooms. Why not listen to a dragon book on audio with your kids and create your own dragon hoard of everything that “must go”. Then unlike dragons, give it away!

Dragon GIFs

Spend a few moments and search #DragonWeek online. Find out what dragon gifs are floating around out there. Share them with friends and family. Spam them in messages or posts. Here are a few I like. (How could I have forgotten Pokemon in my list of dragon movies or books. My boys ate up the world of Pokemon for several years.)

Dragon Friend or Foe

Hold a debate with your friends or family as to whether or not dragons are friendly or fearsome. My opinion is it depends on the dragon. Another idea is to create a list of dragons who are protagonists and those who are antagonists. Which list is longer?

Dragon job

What’s the best job for a dragon? We’ve all heard the standard capture a princess or fight a knight, but what about help a whole valley finding peace?

Dragon Pictures

Oh, yes! This is one of my favorites; I love exploring dragon art. There’s a plethora of art out there available for all to enjoy. As you share, my only request is to credit the artist. Such as these wonderful artists: Naseilen, Sandara (who’s let me use her work for a quote with Ruskya), DawnMLC, and MaRoC68.

    I collect dragons and love to read stories about dragons. My favorite piece of jewelry with a dragon i found at an art fair–it’s a dragon carved into the shell of an emu egg. Thanks for the chance to win dragon prizes!
