Knights and Dragons Half Term Event!

Knights and Dragons Half Term Event!

For our half term special event, our mini-explorers brought their brothers and sisters and cousins along to find out what they do at Culture for kids and join in the fun…. and they loved it!!

Before the session I made Knights lances from pipe insulation, craft foam and electrical tape.

I found a great site with instructions for medieval crowns at first palette so I prepared these for the mini-explorers.

And of course, what Knights and Dragons session would be complete without our very own castle!

The Jesters hats went down really well, I made these with craft foam and used bells to weigh the strips down to look like a jesters hat, and they jingled!
