Retold by Tony Allen from Sonlight HBL C

For this book, since it’s kind of hard to line things up by chapter, I’m going going to list a variety of resources by category.
- Robin Hood and the Merry Men Board Game (says for ages 12 and up, cooperative game)
- The Adventures of Robin Hood Board Game (ages 10 and up, cooperative game)
Lapbooks and Unit Studies
- This Unit Study is Over 100 Pages long, but if you scroll a ways down, you will find assorted worksheets (including things like crossword puzzles and notebooking pages) as well as some lapbook pages. It’s a treasure trove of printables.
Crafts and Projects
- Clothes hanger bows and arrows
- The second or so craft down on this page is a smaller scale bow and arrow set. I’ve also seen Q-tips cotton swabs used for arrows as well.
- This Robin Hood vocabulary idea can easily be transferred over to any type of activity. I was thinking it would make a great reward chart.
- Disney’s Robin Hood-themed meal ideas
- I found this idea for a Disney movie-themed meal, and I really liked the bulls-eye cakes. I think they would be easy to make with sandwiches or other food items, using cocktail toothpicks.
- Robin Hood
- Maid Marion
- Robin Hood Hat
- Bow and Arrows with blunted tips (for those who can be trusted, choose the appropriate level based on your child’s risk level 😉 )
