A special thank you goes out to Disney Home Entertainment for sending my family a Thor: Ragnarok Blu-Ray and DVD and providing ideas as well as sponsoring our Yard Games AKA Contest of Champions!
You will LAUGH and be on the edge of your seat when you watch Thor: Ragnarok, NOW OUT on Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand!
My family has seen this film a couple times now and I was excited to have an opportunity to own a Blu-Ray copy.
There are so many awesome special features including deleted scenes, Gag Reel, and Exclusive Short called Team Darryl (FUNNY), as well as a Directors Commentary and more!
Not only is Thor: Ragnarok a great film to watch, but it can inspire a fun bunch of Yard Games to enjoy with your family.
We used ideas from the film to create a Contest of Champions that included Korg Tic Tac Toe, Hulk Smash, and Thor’s Hammer Toss. Check out how we put our Yard Games together below!
Korg Tic Tac Toe
Korg is a character in the film that happens to be made of rocks. My husband suggested that we take river stones (that we use to paint for Kindness Rocks) and turn them into Tic Tac Toe pieces.
All you need to play is 10 smooth circular rocks, a magic marker, and chalk to write on the sidewalk. The usual rules apply.
This event features a cardboard box wall and the player has one opportunity to run through the wall.
The largest number of knocked down boxes wins the event, and this is pretty easy to do. See how my little HULK did it!
😂 #ad We are celebrating this weeks Blu-Ray and DVD release of MARVEL Studios THOR: RAGNAROK with a few yard games! We even made Thor’s hammer from a tissue box, a pool noodle, and duct tape. Needless to say, during one of the games, The Hulk got a little carried away! LOL! 😂 . . . 👏 FYI you will LAUGH & be on the edge of your seat when you watch this film! It is NOW OUT Digitally in HD & 4K Ultra HD, Movies Anywhere, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand! Look for it online and in stores! 👏 See it HERE>> http://marvel.com/movies/movie/222/thor_ragnarok#relatedProducts #ThorRagnarok . . . . #FunLearningLife #liveboldly #liveoutloud#livecolorfully #mommylife #momblog #lifewithkids #childhoodunplugged #magicofchildhood#illuminatechildhood #candidchildhood #simplychildren #pixel_kids #thatsdarling #darlingmovement #lifeofadventure #flashesofdelight #cameramama #momswithcameras #DisneyFamily #DisneyLOVE #PixieDust #superheroes #marvel @marvelstudios
Thor’s Hammer Toss
Use your imagination to fabricate a DIY hammer with light weight and less damaging items you find around the house.
To assemble our Homemade Thor Hammer, we used an empty tissue box, pool noodle, brown construction paper, and duct tape.
To get started, we first cut the pool noodle to size, then we wrapped a piece of brown construction paper around it and kept it in place with duct tape.
We then put the handle into the tissue paper opening and started wrapping the box. We also anchored the handle with tape all around and wrapped this with more duct tape to secure the handle to the box.
The object of Thor’s Hammer Toss is to see who can toss the homemade hammer the furthest.
My kids ended up doing the best out of 3 throws and used the Tic Tac Toe Rocks to mark the spot. FYI, be sure to remember to pick up the rocks when you are finished.
Looking for more Contest of Champions Yard Games? Check out these other ideas!
Odin’s Spear Javelin Throw
Using pool noodles as a simple target, fashion one pool noodle into something similar to a javelin/Odin’s spear. The event then gives each ring a specific point total and the player gets 5 throws. Highest Cumulative score wins.
Valkyrie Dagger Toss
Similar to Odin’s Spear Javelin Throw, only this time competitors will use toy daggers similar to Valkyrie’s daggers in the film. Highest point total wins.
Balance on the Bifrost Bridge
Balance beam could also be used in a competition where players battle each other with pool noodles to push each other off the bridge.
Team Thor vs. Team Hulk Tug of War
Players split up into two teams and then battle it out as Team Hulk and Team Thor in a massive tug of war.
Which special feature or features are you looking forward to seeing on Thor: Ragnarok?
Thor: Ragnarok Digitally in HD & 4K Ultra HD, Movies Anywhere, and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand! I hope your family enjoys the film as well as these yards games!
