Knights and noblewomen writing patterns for kindergarten
The grail (special cup) that knights always searched for. A lot of fun to make. Use plastic wine glasses for this. Let the kids drip some strong glue onto a lid of a butter tub. They can put small dots op glue on the cup with a Q-tip and attach diamonds to this. You can also have the kids glue the diamonds in patterns.
Stained glass windows of the castle
How nice it is to make stained glass windows for the castle in the classroom with your kids. First create a large template using the download below. Cut the shapes out of cardboard and use this template to draw the shapes on black paper with a white pencil. First, the kids poke a hole in the shape with their scissors and cut out the boxes. Put numbers on the shapes of your template an make sure you have transparent paper that fits behind each shape. Give each sheet of transparent paper a number that matches with your template.
The kids put glue on the black paper around the shapes with a glue stick. They search the correct transparent piece of paper by number and stick it on the window. It is a great activity to learn shapes and improve numeracy.
Cardboard seat covers for knights chairs in the castle for kindergarten
Draw the shape of the covers on stiff cardboard. Let the kids cut out the covers. You need two covers per chair. Trace a few lilies on gold paper. You can also put three or four papers on top of each other. Let the kids use pin poking to punch out the lilies (download the lily here) and stick them on the seat cover. Staple two seat covers on each other and slide the cover over the seats. This is how you create real castle chairs for your castle table.
Helmet for the knights in kindergarten
It’s very easy to make a knight’s helmet with kids. Cut a piece of gray or silver-colored cardboard (20 inch by 27 inch) in half. Copy the cover (see the download below) for the helmet on stiff paper. It is nice to take paper that is darker than the gray cardboard of the helmet. The kids can cut out the rectangles of the valve. Next they cut out the valve itself. Teach them to poke a hole in the rectangles with a pair of scissors first and then cut out the rectangles and the valve.
Draw the opening for the helmet on the paper strip with a marker. The kids also cut out this opening. The teacher staples the helmet together in the right size and also staples the valve through the outer slots. Finally, some colorful feathers are stapled or glued onto the helmet.
Hat for a noblewoman in kindergarten
Turn the cardboard into a tall hat for the noblewomen. The kids decorate the hat with sticky figures. Attach a piece of elastic to the bottom of the hat that can go under the chin. The kids can also attach a strip of tulle to the tip of the hat.
Making a bracelet for a noblewoman
Cut out about 2 inches of an empty paper towel roll. Cut this piece one time. The kids glue macaroni or fusilli with strong glue to the cardboard. You can spray paint the bracelet when the glue has dried.
Draw a shield with a marker on sturdy cardboard. You can also draw your own shield.
The kids cut out the shield. Two strokes of paper are attached to the back of the shield with staples. The kids can put their arms through them if they want to defend themselves. The shields can than be painted. Silver and gold are also good colors for these shields.
When the paint is dry, the kids can cut shield symbols and stick them on the shield from the printables that you can download here.
Making hobby horses for knights
Trace a horse head on double brown paper. The kids cut out these heads. They make a halter out of strokes of paper and paste the eyes to the horse. The manes are made with a wide stroke of paper.
After this, both heads are stapled together with a large stick between them. The kids can ride their horse now.
Castle, made with cutting, pasting and painting
Let the kids paint a landscape on a large piece of paper. You can lay some photos of landscapes on the tables as an example. When the paint is dry, the kids cut and paste a castle on the landscape using colored paper.
You can also lay some pictures of castles on the table to give the kids an idea of what to cut. Teach the kids how they can cut merlons easily: Cut a small cut twice in an inch. Now you have some loose pieces of paper. Always cut a piece of paper away, then leave one again and then cut another one away.
When the castle is finished, the kids can use the gate and windows from the sheets below to make their castles complete. There is a page with larger windows and doors and a page with smaller dimensions.
