Sword and Shield

Sometimes it's the kids who come up with the best ideas.

Fil made some wooden swords and shields for Theo's recent 'Knights and Dragon' birthday party. Nice and small and light weight for the kids and not too pointed...

After the party the kids had the idea to paint them. They love painting wood and often come in from the workshop with bits of wood to paint.

We painted them with some poster paints and used sponges and rollers to get some good effects.

Theo gets very absorbed in his painting and often paints himself too! Great fun.

We have some lovely new swords and shields freshly out of the workshop for you folks too at our shop. 

Have a great week.
