James (10) is our little inventor. He has a wonderful imagination and is always making up new comic strips or building something out of junk. He loves history and his current area of interest is Knights and Castles. He has been reading up about them for the last few weeks.
This last week he has been busy making a scroll. He took a long sheet of paper and ripped the edges. Then he stained it with a wet teabag. Once it was dry he copied the lettering out of one of his books. When it is complete he is going to put a wax seal on the bottom. I'll post a picture of it when it is done. So far I think it looks very authentic!
He also came through to me the other day and asked if we could have a medieval banquet for his birthday dinner and can we all dress up in medieval clothes, him as a knight of course. He is going to go online and research what sort of food they would have had at a celebration. His birthday isn't until January!!!!
