A Narnia Ship

The Chronicles of Narnia book series written by CS Louis, has taken myself and the children into a world of fantasy and adventure. I have enjoyed reading them as much as they have, it’s been hard to put the books down.

The books sparked much creativity and the building of this wonderful ship. We have no craft materials with us in France just yet so the children are finding whatever they can to be creative with. We’ve received some packages in cardboard boxes which have been used for their making of their Narnia ship and a castle. The figures were made from Stockmar beeswax.

The mast made from a stick they found along with matchstick railings, ropes and windows embellished the ship. Ladders were constructed to climb from the lower deck to the upper deck with sticks and cardboard.

Bows and swords

They carved many bows and arrows from bendable sticks they found in the nearby woods. The boys cleaned them up and sharpened their arrows with their knives. They are good strong weapons.
