"Robin Hood" hats were a quick and easy craft this month

Testing our ping pong skills
Instead of using a bow and arrow or a bow staff (like Robin Hood might have),

Robin Hood themed snacks
For snacks we ate "Robin" sugar cookies,
Target cheese and crackers,
and ginger ALE served with "golden arrow" straws.

The kids took home some of Robin's gold (caramel corn)
--and were reminded to share with the poor.Robin Hoods Caramel Corn Gold
Here is a link for a good caramel corn recipe

The book we chose to read
Though there are many versions, we chose to read this one.
My kids also enjoyed this graphic novel version and this one too.
