Cool New Netflix Series for Kids

Looking for a cool Netflix series for kids and tweens? Good news! Netflix recently released an exclusive new original series — Dreamworks Animations Dragons: Race to the Edge. Both of my kids enjoyed the How to Train Your Dragon books and movie series, so this new series was a big hit with them! I love that it is available for them to watch whenever they would like using the Netflix streaming service. It is great for a rainy day, or if the kids need a bit of down time in between activities.

Netflix for Kids

In Dragons: Race to the Edge, Hiccup, Toothless, and their friends are leaving the Island of Berk in search of new dragons! We have been watching this Netflix series for kids as they discover new worlds and take on epic adventures! The kids are planning to craft up a “Dragon’s Eye” of their own for imaginative play time fun. My friends at Netflix even provided us with great dragon-themed promotional materials so the kids can create their own adventures in dragon-training.

Other Fun Dragon Activities:

  • Build a Dragon Garden or Terrarium — add some plants and toy dragons to inspire creative play!
  • Play “Pass the Fireball” — Just like “Hot Potato”, only more dragon-themed.
  • Draw Dragon Scenes with Sidewalk Chalk — Have your child pose like he is training the dragon!
  • Photo Booth Fun — make photo booth props like pretend swords, shields, or Viking hats.
  • Serve Dragon-themed snack treats like nachos labelled as “Dragon Scales”, corn chips labelled as “Dragon Claws”, or grapes labelled as “Dragon Eggs”.
  • Read other Dragon books together like “Dragons Love Tacos” and of course any title from the “How to Train Your Dragon” series by Cressida Cowell.
  • Use paper bags and construction paper to craft up dragon puppets. Write up a simple script together, and then put on a show!

  1. You guys need to read “Dealing With Dragons” by Patricia Wrede. It’s the story of Princess Cimorene, who is tired of doing proper princess things and runs away from the castle. She ends up volunteering as a housekeeper for a dragon, and while there discovers a nefarious plot by the local wizards… Your girls would love this series! 🙂
