After a family vacation, its time to start good ol’ Mom Camp again. The original plan was to have two or three days for our Knight and Princess theme. But, with school just around the corner and so much to do before it starts, we had to squeeze things into a single day.
We made three crafts. The Princess wanted wands. I found these at the Dollar Store and saved them. She didn’t add too much decoration, but she was happy with them…
Next we made these cute little princess and knight crafts. The idea came from Busy Bee Crafts. Although we made up the princess craft ourselves. We used some left over fabric, glitter sticker sheets, cotton balls and buttons. The Princess needed a little help getting started, but Cinco made his knight without any help!
The next craft was a dragon! The idea for this one was borrowed from Activity Village. It was originally supposed to be a dragon made from a wooden spoon. Sadly, I didn’t get the chance to buy any wooden spoons so wemodified the craft and used plastic ones. The kids still had a great time painting and designing the dragons.
For our reading, we have been listening to in the car. The audio version is abridged. But, it is read by Rob Reiner, which is kinda cool. Thank heaven it’s been keeping the kids quite in the backseat as we do our chores! As aside note, they have yet t actually watch themovie!
Cinco also spent a lot of time reading a Choose-Your-Own Adventure style book about knights.
Our movie was: The film as recently been released on DVD. I loved it as a kid and it’s a great way to talk the kids about the Magna Carta. (Have I mentioned that ever summer I plan to do a Magna Carta Day for Mom Camp and ever summer, I miss it? If I ever get to Magna Carta Day, we will be watching this again.)
Update: I did do a Magna Carta Day….
