We took the kids to the Scandinavian Festival at Cal Lutheran today! It was a blast! Perfect timing, since we are studying the Middle Ages this year and had already finished up the Vikings, etc. The big kids also memorized all the countries and capitals of Scandinavia.
They learned about the fighting habits of Norsemen, including their weapons! They did crafts, learned about food and games, and tried Ebelskiever! I'm pretty sure this counts as their hands-on and crafting for the rest of the school year!! ;-p
Enjoy the pics!
