How to host a Medieval Party for your Kids
- Book your entertainment for the day; Waggle Dance, who will train your knights and fair maidens in the art of medieval sword fighting.
- Source or make a medieval outfit for your young squire or damsel. There are plenty available to buy on eBay if you get stuck.
- Buy or make medieval inspired decorations such as; coat of arms buntings, DIY goblets (spray paint plastic cups gold and decorate with jewels from the craft shop), lanterns, and a faux candle chandelier if you are an adventurous crafter.
- Prepare a cake or arrange to have one made; ideas include a shield, dragon, castle or a crown.
- Download some instrumental themed music from the middle ages for your iPod or music device.
- Make a simple medieval kids banquet; baskets of bread, apples, grapes, corn on the cob, sausages or meat balls.
- Source party bags and fill with gold coins, lolly frogs, sour lizards and temporary knight medieval tattoos.
