St. George’s Day is a red-letter day in the English calendar and it’s an important time for budding young artists too
– there are so many St. George’s Day crafts to make! St. George’s Day decorations look great in classrooms and living rooms – the red and white of the St. George’s Day flag is such a classic colour scheme.
Shields, swords and visors are fantastic to make and decorate with acrylic pens and paints – don’t forget to add jewels for a shiny finish. Role play involving dressing as St. George or the fair maiden he rescued can really breathe life into classroom projects about England’s dragon-battling patron saint.
Learning about history and myths while making art is such good fun – what better time to pick up a great English artistic hobby than in the run-up to our national day? Our supplies make great resources for teachers and families with budding young artists. Art and craft teaches children so many skills and it doesn’t cost a king’s ransom to make great art!
