Design and make your own Viking Shield

Think about the Viking shields that we saw in Yorvik and the ones we made at the YHA.  What sort of designs did they have?  What colours did they use?  Draw a circle and design your own shield - will it have a dragon on it or a pattern?  Then try making your shield using cardboard and paints.

Design and make your own Viking Longship

Use the clips below to have a look at the longships that the Vikings sailed to Britain in.  Why not have a go at making your own?  There are plenty of images of these available and remember the ones we made in York!  (Don't worry - it doesn't need to be as big as this!)

Paper Loom Weaving

When we were in York, at the Yorkshire Museum, we tried our hand at weaving with a loom and some wool.  Use the worksheet provided below, to make your own paper loom and create your own paper weaving.  It might be a little tricky at first but it looks great when you finish it!  If you manage one why don't you send a picture to the office email address so we can have a look at how you got on!
