2 Reviews
Kids can re-create a long-ago world of kings, castles, jousts, jesters, damsels, magic fairies, and Robin Hood—all they need are their imaginations, materials they can find at home, and the activities in this book. Dressing up in a coat of armor made from plastic milk jugs, whipping up a batch of curds and whey, writing secret messages in invisible ink, and telling time with a sand glass made from soda bottles are just some of the fun projects. Every activity is illustrated, and sidebars highlight colorful facts about life hundreds of years ago.

Don't go to an event without it. This book and a few basic supplies can turn even the rainiest, coldest event into a fun-filled, kid-friendly time (bring plenty -- all the adults will want to join the fun too). this book is so much fun that planning a children's corner becomes its own party.
