The Tudor Age is a colourful, exciting and action packed period of English history that historians and children alike seem to easily develop an affinity with.
Kids will have great fun finding out about the exciting lives of Tudor royalty; the likes of Henry VIII, ‘scary' Bloody Mary and Elizabeth I did not lead dull lives!
Baker Ross has some inspiring arts and crafts materials which are ideal for use in classroom Tudor history projects.
Tudor Wooden Stick Masks feature the faces of King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I (do the class know that she isn't the only Queen named Elizabeth to have ruled England?)
The masks are great fun to colour in and decorate – you will need plenty of red acrylic paint as both these monarchs had the Tudor's flaming red hair. Queen Elizabeth's and Queen Mary's faces will have to be painted white to match their ‘English Rose' pale complexions!
Tudor Rose Cushion Sewing Kits will help produce cushions fit for chairs, sofas or thrones! The Tudor Rose was formed of a red rose (representing Lancaster) and a white rose (representing the House of York) – hence the colour scheme of these comfy cushions.
A Tudor Neck Ruff Kit comes with pre-cut card templates and pre-folded paper and can be decorated with pens and paints. Ruffs were worn by many Tudor people – both men and women. The women's ruffs were often sparkled with decorations of the sun, moon and stars.
