|Peasant - aka Robin Hood|
|Another peasant (ok, they also called me Belle)|
|And our jester! (What a good sport!)|
|We got metal plates and cups at the market, made a candlelit chandelier, torches and more...|
|We even had stocks.|
|Our friends, the Dwire family, joined us in our Medieval Day. Eric was our knight.|
|We had something between a peasants meal and a Medieval feast.|
Bread bowls with stew, grape juice, fruit, and pudding for dessert.
|The kids had to prepare a poem, creative writing, or write about the person they came as.|
|Then we played games.|
First was a the quest for the Holy Grail.
A scavenger hunt like the search the knights had for the cup Jesus used at the last supper.
(You can read more about the quest for the Holy Grail yourself!)
|Then we had an obstacle course to go from a page, to a squire, to a knight.|
|Throw the caber - the Scottish would see who could throw a huge log (tree!) the furthest.|
We used a basket that looks like a log :)
|Last of all art. |
The kids made a family crest which tells everyone who you are using pictures that describe you.
We also made stain glass windows.
|You can't have a Medieval day without a castle. Luka and I had fun making this one.|
|This is what I love about homeschooling - I get to be with my kids, know what they are learning, learn with them, I get to be creative, have fun, and make great memories together!|
