Have you marked your calendars yet for next week’s Medieval Fair? We’ve been going since my son was 3 and he looks forward to it every year. It’s a great way to spend the day and it can be educational, too!
In the past, we’ve tied the day in with learning about knights and castles and with our FIAR unit on The Duchess Bakes a Cake. We’ve also just gone and had a fun day without doing anything new for school. Sometimes just the experience itself is good!
In case you’re looking for a way to make your week a little more medieval, here are a few ideas you might like!
- Castle Diary Notebooking Pages—These pages from Homeschool Share are geared toward kids ages 7-12.
