Art meets history in this fun journey back to the Middle Ages. Discover how castles were built, and then design your own. Learn about the Codes of Knighthood while making heraldry flags with felt. Plan your own stained glass design and create a faux stained glass. Find out about the monks who painted Illuminated manuscripts and then grind plants for the paint to create your own. Explore the folklore of dragons and make one out of Sculpey. Literature, art images, and re-enacting add to the fun of studying the Middle Ages.
