If you try any of the activities or recipes, we'd LOVE to hear from you!
And we'll post on what we end up doing, as well!
Monday, Feast day of St. Louis
For tons of information on this saintly French king of the crusades and the father of eleven children (with his devout wife, Marguerite), I went here and here. And then I found this wonderful pictorial review of King St. Louis posted by Hallowedground last year.
Make sure and read the last instructions given by St. Louis on his deathbed to his eldest son, Philip ~ all still good advice today.
For feastday arts and crafts,
we found the following resources to make:
Play swords ~ Kimberlee at Pondered in My Heart posted these awesome instructions for making safe play swords a while back.
Shields ~ Everything you need to know about knights and heraldry, and for making shields you can find and download at Owl and Mouse.
And, what's a celebration without goodies?
Here are recipes and instructions for:
a Fancy crown cake
a Simpler crown cake
