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?
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.
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 who would like to sit and tell stories to the children
I need 2-3 volunteers to put on a puppet show
Supplies: puppet stage, puppets
Mini Haffla and Courtly dancing
I need 1-2 volunteers to teach basic steps for middle eastern dance as
well as some fun court dances
Supplies: Music, jingle scarves
1-2 volunteers to give basics in illumination
Supplies: stencils, paper. Pencils and markers are already supplied.
Fill the Gap Kumihimo Bookmarks
1-2 volunteers to teach this simple craft
I have some foam fill the gap wheels and some floss but more would be
1-2 people to teach various outdoor and board games
Supplies : none I have most of the games given out at Yule to work
1-2 volunteers to teach some of the bardic arts
need a youth Marshall or 2 for this
Supplies: loaner gear and weapons
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.
