So said my son, about my making the Irish Stew as our hands-on project when we studied the Celts. Apparently, he was not happy that we did not try to do more than eating, so he insisted that we actually make something!
Alright, it's his education so I'm more than happy if he wants to do additional work on a certain topic. I let him choose a project from the same project book that was used in the previous week. He wanted to make a Celtic dagger and scabbard, so we got to work.
The original instructions in the book suggest using card to make the items, but I used cardboard instead, for a stronger weapon. A card dagger will be too flimsy.
I drew the patterns on the cardboard and cut them out. Tiger did the rest.
Now he is happy. We can move on to the next topic.
