For this months Castle Defenders, I asked what is a knight without a sword. So while our Castle Keeper girls were learning how to make journal covers, our boys were learning sword making skills.
My husband taught the class and started off telling them a few stories.
and then it was time to make their swords!
This link has a good tutorial – How to Make a Boffer (Foam Sword).
Then the rest of the day they fought and fought and in between chased chickens. 🙂
My older boys even got in on the action and took on all of them.
And they all went home tired but happy “Castle Defenders.”
I have a couple of boards on Pinterest where I pin Handicrafts & Skills for Girls and Handicrafts & Skills for Boys. You won’t find cut and paste art projects but projects more in keeping with what Charlotte Mason taught. I wrote about Charlotte Mason Handicrafts here. If you think you would find the Pinterest boards useful, you can follow them here.
