Welcome to our First Michaelmas Celebration!
Beth and I made golden capes for all of our children to wear. She used silk scarves which she dyed with sunflowers, and I used some yellow cotton fabric from my stash.
the kids all made dragon bread. Beth made the dough from Tasha Tudor’s white bread recipe from THIS COOKBOOK,and used goat milk!
While the dragons slept in their cave (oven) the kids had a shooting star throwing contest out in the garden.
these cute daisy-on-a-stick marked the distance every 20 feet.
the stars in action!
Beth’s Hubby made yummy potato soup to go with our dragonbread.
Allyson and Felicity made Texas Sheet Cake to bring for dessert. we put walnuts on half the cake so the kids that don’t like nuts would be happy too.
I printed up these fun cake toppers with pictures of Ostheimer dragon and knights and Allyson glued them together with a toothpick between. (dragon on one side, knight on the other side)
After dinner, Beth’s kids did a skit of St George slaying the dragon…
… and then our kids sang the song A Boy’s Resolve (found in the clump-a-dump and snickle-snack song book … by Johanne Russ) that we taught the kids on that Monday.
just a note… teach the kids the song at the beginning of September next time!
We wrapped up the celebration with the kids fighting the awesome dragon pinãta that her son made.
After the kids gathered all the candy, I had them put all of it together and divide it up evenly.
