Fancy Dress Fun for Summer Holidays

My girls love to dress up and role play. They get it from their mother! At the moment, they like to play games where they are pirate princesses (inspired by Jake and the Neverland Pirates), or superheroes (inspired by DC Girls Superhero High). They also like to mix it up a little, and bring in traditional themes like castles, knights and mythical creatures. They have a very vivid imagination.

One of our favourite items from the fancy dress box is this wooden broadsword from English Heritage. We bought ours a couple of years ago on a visit to Anwick Castle in Northumberland. It is quite versatile, because the size of it makes it suitable for both adults and children, and while it is wooden, it is not heavy or dangerous to use. And, let’s face it, nothing beats a good pretend sword fight during the school summer holidays (and that’s just between Mummy and Daddy!)

While one daughter is being a Knight with her sword, the other could be the princess or queen, and wear this beautiful gold crown. She would flounce around in her big, medieval princess dress, give out the orders, and sit on her throne while the knight does her bidding.

And, finally, what medieval fantasy story would be complete without this little fella? Yes, the dragon. Not so fearsome and oh so adorable!
