The afternoon began with the children gathering to hear the Michaelmas story and then they helped to finish dying the capes.
While the capes dried in the warmth of the glorious day the littles enjoyed many games of tug of war.
Emma recieves her Cape of Courage.
Let the dragon chase begin!
We must make one of these.
And one of these!
Learning to play "Knights and Ladies, where is the sword". Think "Red Light, Green Light" but with a medieval theme.
It was a truly glorious day! The girls had such a fabulous time that it took me close to two hours to get them to leave. Our only disappointment was that David could not be there with us. With any luck, next year he'll be able to join in the fun! Thanks everyone for making our first Michaelmas festival so much fun!
