Shield designing


You will need:

  • cardboard
  • scissors
  • glue/tape
  • pens/pencils
  • tin foil


  1. On your cardboard draw the design of the shield you would like.
  2. Using a pair of scissors cut round the design (please look below to see how to hold your scissors correctly)
  3. Design your own coat of arms by drawing something on the shield that is special to you. This can be a pattern, drawing of a pet, shapes, even a self portrait.
  4. Using a spare piece of cardboard cut a long oblong/rectangle shape out (this will be used for the handle)
  5. Bend the oblong strip of cardboard at either end to make a horseshoe shape.
  6. Tape or glue both ends of the strip of cardboard in the centre at the back of your shield. This will make a handle for you to hold your shield.


You have now made a knights shield!


We look forward to seeing your results.
