Shout out to all the Mothers out there! 

Although some places are beginning to open, it looks like most schools won't start again until the fall and we will all continue to social distance and stay home as much as possible. Staying occupied at home can be a challenge. The Kingdom has been compiling a list of fun activities to help pass the time! 

Have you played the Swan Princess Latice Card game yet? It's perfect for adults, small parties, kids (ages 6+ years) or families, fun for everyone!

Want something to do while you wait for your purchases to come in the mail? Here are a few activities we've been doing here at the castle! 

Indoor Scavenger Hunt

Outdoor Scavenger Hunt 

Going for walks is a popular activity to get out of the house right now. Brighten your neighbors day by adding some art to the sidewalks. You can write fun sayings, draw pictures, or create your own masterpiece. 

Sidewalk Art (Stained Glass)

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Chalk

  • Painters Tape

DIRECTIONS

  1. Start by adding tape to the ground in a fun geometric design. You can let the kids make it by giving each child a long strip of painters tape & letting them make the next line.
  2. Next, give them as many colors of sidewalk chalk as you can find in the house! The more, the merrier! 
  3. Then, let each child color a square until you have a beautiful stained glass chalk design.

Not everyone has chalk lying around the house so a fun alternative is to make your own version of Chalk for your sidewalk or driveway. 

Sidewalk Chalk Paint

WHAT YOU NEED

  • 2 cups Cornstarch

  • 2 cups Water

  • Food Coloring, various colors

  • 8 Small Clear Cups or a Cupcake Baking Pan

  • Paintbrush

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the water and cornstarch and stir until the cornstarch dissolves and it is smooth. It will be kind of runny.

  2. Divide the mixture evenly into the small plastic cups or into a cupcake baking sheet. Use food coloring to make different colors in each cup.

  3. Use paintbrushes to paint pictures on the sidewalk or driveway outside. The mixture is thinner and runnier than regular paint, but just paint your pictures like you would with any other paint. The paint dries quickly, and it will resemble sidewalk chalk. The colors are very bright once they dry! It washes off very easily with rain or the hose.

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

These delicious cookies are a real feel-good treat and can be stored for up to a week - if you have any left by then!

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tbsp corn starch

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup

1 stick unsalted butter, softened

2 medium ripe bananas, peeled and mashed

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup peanut butter chips

Instructions

1. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, corn starch, and salt in a medium bowl before setting the mixture aside. 

2. Cream the butter, bananas, and sugars together.

3. Add the vanilla extract and mix. 

4. Stir in the flour mixture. 

5. Stir in chocolate and peanut butter chips.

6. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes. 

7. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

8. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out the cookie dough onto prepared cookie sheets.

9. Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes or just until they start to turn light, golden brown on top.

10. Let the cookies cool completely on cookie sheets.

As a side dish, you can add some strawberries and bananas to a plate of these scrumptious cookies!

Mayday!
In May, Prince Derek normally puts up a maypole in the village and all of the children dance around it whilst holding a colorful ribbon. As they dance, the ribbons wrap around the maypole until they reach the end.
