Discussion in 'Primary' started by cbdixon, May 7, 2010.

  1. Hi everyone,
    Our topic is Vikings and for art I wanted the children to have a messy afternoon during SATs week. I want to make Viking helmets as we have already made some mini salt dough shields! Has anyone made one before and do you have any tips as what is best to use. I was thinking a balloon and papier mache?! Just not sure!! My class are Y4/5 btw!! Thank you.

  3. I did this last year - we used mudrock, and swimming caps on heads, then applied the mudrock outside (it's a bit messy! Need old shirts worn over uniforms), then let them dry overnight, then painted them and applied foil bits for the metal 'rims' bit.
    Kids really loved it!
     
  4. Hi
    Paper mache balloons and then cut in half, add nose piece. We also made a 15ft viking longboat, complete with oars and seats!!!! Took weeks, art corner was chaos, but looked fab.
    Did shields with cardboard and polystyrene desert bowls.
