I had a bunch of kids over at my house this week for a writing camp. Mostly girls going into 5th grade, a boy, and my daughter – who will be starting 3rd grade this fall.
The theme was Percy Jackson and to prepare I did some internet searches (I’d never read the books or seen the movies, but my daughter had watched them and I’d caught glimpses. I knew there were swords, and Pinterest validated this.)
A pvc “+” and a pool noodle, and the kids can safely sword fight all week between writing prompts, trivia, and PJ movie sessions. All set.
Off to Lowe’s and the dollar store for sword making supplies and a few prizes to give away at the end of camp.
Funny thing, though…
This kid is going into second grade, and she just turned eight years old.
We pop into Walmart all the time…
