What I'm making my son for Halloween :)....Martha Stewart kid's Knight Costume using mostly aluminum foil pans & silver paper lined cupcake liners. My husband make a sword from wood & painted it along with a hat silver and I made a no sew cape from an old red fleece blanket.
Medieval Wall of Knights Backdrop Decoration (Each)
Purim/Esther: These Jeweled Goblets are decently priced, but make your own (or have children make their own) using plastic cups and stick-on Jewels. Use them for a Persian feast that reenacts Queen Esther's meals with the King.
