I have started collecting cardboard boxes and have about 5-6 so far.  I am 
guessing that you want closer to 20-30 of them to make good forts that will 
fall down when hit with a siege ball?

Greetings all,

I am so excited about the Children's Activities at Med Faire this year!!!!! 
We are going to be doing some totally AWESOME things for all the smalls.  To 
make that happen though, I will need some willing volunteers and some 
donations.  Here is a list of some of the activities I am planning, please 
let me know if you can help out in any way, no matter how small:

A Quest for the Baroness' Bells
    Her Excellency has lost some of the bells from her favorite dancing 
skirt, search around embassy to find them.
    I will need 4-5 volunteers to be bell keepers
    Supplies needed: small jingle bells, ribbon and largess

tongue depressor catapults (kids had a blast making these last year)
   I need 1-2 volunteers to run this if possible
    Supplies needed: tongue depressors, regular rubber bands, and 
    these are super easy to make and the kids get to take home a toy.

Mini Siege
    I'll need 2-3 volunteers to help control the chaos (yes you can play 
    Supplies needed:  lots of paper boxes(enough for 2-3 forts) 3-4 exercise 
bands, fabric tubes cut into 24" lengths.  Foam balls are already supplied.

    1-2 volunteers to teach this simple craft

1-2 people to teach various outdoor and board games

    This is for our own smalls to be helpful at the embassy.
    I need 1-2 adult volunteers to coordinate placement of pages with those 
who need their assistance.  Shift hours to be determined by job.

Let me know what you are interested in and when you are available to work 
and I will make up a schedule and post it as soon as I can.  If you have 
some other ideas on how we can showcase our children and what we have for 
them to do please let me know and we'll see if it will fit in the schedule. 
If all you can do is donate supplies, bless you! and thank you!  Email me at 
ithilinpalandriel at yahoo.com and we'll make arrangements to get those picked 

To everyone who helps in any way, my undying thanks and gratitude.
