Make a Medieval Shield!
Got a jousting knight at home? Try this project with him! Medieval shields were used to protect a knight or soldier during battle. The shields were decorated with symbols so a knight could be recognized, both at a tournament and on the battlefield. Help your young jouster create his own shield design using a sponge printing technique.
