Merida’s love of archery is something that my dragons relate to, and definitely keeps their interest when watching the movie. We decided for our craft, we would tie it in with the quivers we made when we did our Robin Hood Disney Day.
The first thing we did was decorate the wooden dowels. The dragons and Princess wanted their arrows to be personalized, and who can blame them? This lengthens the life of the craft, too, if you don’t want it to be super short!
This season of life is so busy. Our family went from having nothing (thanks to moving during a pandemic) to having all the things. Life tends to be funny that way. My little space of sharing Disney magic seems to be a little less consistent thanks to our busy schedules, but I hope you enjoy when the posts pop up!
We left our Robin Hood Day hovering with Little John’s Beef Stew. Now for a quick and easy craft to make your very own quiver!
– empty Pringle’s can
– construction paper or felt
– stickers, crayons- whatever you want to decorate with!
– String or elastic
– First, we wrapped our paper around the Pringle’s can and marked where the paper would overlap. Rather than cut it, I left it to overlap to make sure we didn’t see any of the can at all.
– Next, the dragons decorated the paper as they liked.
– Then we glued the paper on and gave it a minute to dry. My oldest added some lining to make it look like a “real quiver.”
– Last, I measured the dragons with their quiver straps. We used elastic so it had room to stretch without worrying about it snapping off. I also used hot glue to secure it to the bottom and inside the empty can.
Maybe we need to make something to put in the quiver… what do you think? Check back soon for more fun!
Have you made one of our crafts or recipes? Tag me on IG! I would love to see!
I remember seeing Tarzan in theaters. I was at an age when cartoon movies were on the brink of “uncool”. As an adult, I realize how silly that is.
Tarzan is underrated, if you ask me. The music and humor in it are fantastic. It’s a family favorite, for sure (it’s kind of hard to find a disney film that isn’t).
For our Tarzan Disney day, I was really challenged to find some things that appeal to my littles and oldest (who is on the brink of thinking I’m not cool). My oldest loves to learn all the things, so this first one was geared toward him.
Super simple but fun. This printable contains some facts about gorillas and a couple familiar faces from the film.
After coloring and reading the facts, we talked about ways we can help gorillas today. We found the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and read up on Dian Fossey and her work. We decided to give a small donation, as everything always helps!
Coming up on the blog: a recipe that is B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
