Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Medieval Birthday Party for your Knight-in-Training

Our Elias is turning 6 this week! Pinch me! I can’t handle it. Time really does fly. Last year we thought that it was a good idea to begin our chivalry challenge with our boys at home so we decided to celebrate Elias’ 5th birthday with a Medieval Feast to officially kick off his training into biblical knighthood. I’m sharing everything swords, dragons, and bravery with you on the blog today. Hopefully this inspires you to begin or continue your own training with your boys at home!

We had a feast fit for a king!

  • Mini chicken drum sticks (mild buffalo wings)
  • corn on the cob
  • bread with butter
  • fresh fruit
  • Goblets filled with Cola of Courage and Soda of Strength
  • Dragon’s food (Rice Crispy treats)
  • Dragon flames (licorice)

Slaying the Dragon

We couldn’t find a dragon, but our dinosaur piñata did the trick!

We filled the piñata with plastic knights, golden coins, and dragons for the goodie bags.

Here are just a few parenting books and read-alouds that inspired our themed party…

The Door in the Wall was our favorite read yet!

Most of our supplies were found at Dollar Tree. I’ve been able to keep the decorations and pull them out throughout the year as we continue with our unit studies on knighthood.

We even took a few of these ideas and used them for our Easter devotional with our boys. You can read the blog post about it here.
