My Brave Shieldmaiden

Today was rainy, the kids are still on Spring Break, and having been away on business for the last week, I tried to spend some time playing with them.

Inevitably, since I am a project-oriented person, I get them started on a project, and then they are off playing long before I finish it. This time, we attempted a Knight's helmet from the Usborne Activities "Knights and Castles things to make and do" book.

Here is my brave princess, in her helmet. Looks pretty good, even before decorating it:

She reminds me of that great scene from Lord of the Rings:

Death Rider: No man can kill me!
Eowyn: [pulling off her helmet] I am no man! [Kills him.]

Ha! That's my girl!
