When everyone was here we had a lot of vegetables and that meant opening some canned good. Since I buy a lot of groceries in bulk, the cans come in 6 or 8-pks and there is a nice curved-rectangular piece of cardboard at the bottom holding the cans. I put a stack of the cardboards aside just for this activity.

|Make one-half the shape.|
|Trace the sword shape onto one cardboard.|
|Make one for everybody!|
|Mark and cut two "straps" on the second cardboard.|
|I like to put the child's name or initial on the shield. They like to color and decorate the sword and shield.|
