Our Day With the Vikings

This week in history we visited the Vikings or Norseman. We made Viking boats as our activity. Little did I know the creative play it would provide. These little Viking ships are the perfect size for playmobile men (and women). We threw a blue sheet over the couch and ventured into the open sea in search of a place to raid or land to discover. We then encountered a huge orange sea monster that attempted to eat us alive (a.k.a. crabby, our stuffed crab). We barely escaped with our lives and then landed on an island with fire breathing dragons (not so much Viking history:o). We got away just in time, to then set sail again on a new adventure. The Vikings are now tucked away at camp till the sun rises tomorrow. Though we know they did not have digital cameras in the time of Eric the Red and his son....we thought you might enjoy a pictoral walk through our Viking day. Please disregard the very Roman soldiers on our dragon island.....we don't have any playmobile Vikings.
