So we decided to celebrate all of this knowledge with a little family jousting tournament that weekend. We started by going to the fabric store, choosing some ribbons and posterboard, and making some princess hats to match my girls' gowns. (The idea for this came from Days of Knights and Damsels by Laurie Carlson.) Our little ladies had to be properly attired for the tournament, of course!
|We shaped oranges, bananas, strawberries, and pears.|
|Grace turned out to be a fierce foe, princess gown and all.|
|Cameron wore our dollar-store knight helmet for the occasion|
|Abby has the facial expressions down!|
