Overview


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.

Overview


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.

More than 100 illustrated crafts, projects, and games help recreate the culture and world of the Middle Ages, when books were handmade and read by candlelight, sundials told the hour, and going barefoot was illegal.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[A] jump-start to creative interpretation of life in the Middle Ages and a helpful augmentation to elementary school medieval studies."  —Children’s Literature

Children's Literature - Susan Hepler
Over 100 activities from the Middle Ages are presented for children. Directions and pictures are included for making clothes (hats, wigs, ruffs, tiaras, jewelry, helmet, ladies' favors), crafts (sand glass, sundial, soap, coins), food (trenchers, tarts, blackbird pie, mead, gingerbread), projects (knit bags, coats of arms, dolls, magic tricks), and games (Alquerque, draughts, Fox & Geese, 9 Men's Morris). Sketchy drawings leave room for interpretation of fabrics or designs and give children basic ideas on which to build. Most materials are easy to find and many of the projects are modest and simple enough for children as young as five (but, as a result, insulting to 10 year olds). The author's choice of projects makes this book seem most suited to seven- to ten-year-olds; teachers of older or younger students may want to pick and choose. Most projects come with a paragraph or two telling how or why the activity was important to people in the Middle Ages. All in all, a decent jump-start to creative interpretation of life in the Middle Ages and a helpful augmentation to elementary school medieval studies.

    Wonderful book

    From clothing to food to games, there are hundreds of ideas, this book gives kids a great way to use their imagination and have a lot of fun, while learning and allows teacher to tie into a history lesson. I'm very pleased with this book.
