Knights in Armour

Sticking with our medieval/fantasy theme we made knights in shining armour. This is not an idea that I made up I just cannot remember where I saw it. If you know I am happy to give credit where credit is due. 


  • Aluminium Foil
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Coloured Card

  1. When cutting out your knight it is easier to cut it out section by section. As in cut out a shoe, then a shin, then a thigh and finally a knee cap. Rather than try for the whole leg as the foil can tear quite easily and the whole exercise can make you quite frustrated. 
  2. Use different materials to add details such as a shield/emblem. You could do a flag that comes of the page with fabric. You can add many elements to this activity. It really depends on how far you or the kids want to go. 
Below are some examples of what we did

Add a background for more depth

You ca also add fantastical colouring ins to make the picture more exciting.
