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.
– Wooden dowels (we used these from Amazon)
– Felt or heavy paper
– Arrowhead and Feather printable (see below)
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!
We have these easy and fun paint markers we got from Amazon that we used to decorate the dowels with.
After painting the dowels, I used my cricket to cut felt into the shapes foe the arrowheads and feathers. they picked favorite colors for each, and then we used hot glue to attach them to the dowels.
Another way to do it, is cut them just on normal paper and decorate those as well. Then you can use normal glue or a stapler to attach them to the end of the dowels!
