I've been trying to have an event for The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe for over a year now. And, despite some bad weather, we finally got to do it this month.
Pinterest is full of awesome Narnia snowglobe ideas. Amazing ones where the lamppost actually lights up(!) or really pretty waterless ones. For our purposes, I thought it'd be best to do a simple version with a resin lamppost, evergreen tree, some glitter, glycerin, and water in a jelly jar.
I had a table with hot glue guns and the miniatures separate from the other craft tables.
The trees turn the water a little green at first, but it clears up.
We also made an Origami Aslan. Well, modified origami.
I got the template and instructions (though I added new photos) from First Palette, which offers a whole range of foldable paper zoo animals (fun!). The template is for the "Big Cat" and the lion's mane is added by gluing on orange crepe paper.
The instructions look a little more daunting than it actually is. I printed the template out on tan construction paper and cut them out ahead of time.
We also made White Witch crowns. This idea came from International Elf Service (and hers looks much better than mine, so be sure to have a look there).
For this craft I used paper (cardstock for the headband part and regular printer paper for the cones), scissors, tape, and a stapler. I bought thin silver sparkle washi tape from Hobby Lobby.
It was fun to see the modified versions the kids made of these.
We also decorated our own shields with markers. The shields came from Oriental Trading and were a nice large size, but we had to take them over to the hot glue guns to glue the handle on the back. Lame.
We also had to try some Turkish Delight. My boss ordered two kinds--one tangerine (right) and one marshmallow chocolate, which I'm not sure really counts as Turkish Delight, but whatever.
We ordered Marmara Turkish Delight from Amazon. We also watched the movie adaptation of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe:
The only decorating I did was to hang some sparkly snowflakes from the ceiling and set out all of our Narnia books.
