Vicious Vikings

We have been having a little fun with the Vikings lately.  According to our History Odyssey curriculum, this should be one week.  However, add in 2 sick kids, Oireachtas and Daddy's birthday  - we ended up at 4 weeks!  Ah well.  They learned and they enjoyed.
We finally finished up the subject today.  In honour of the last day we made Viking Apple Juice (apples boiled in water with honey).  It was pretty good too.
The kids enjoyed writing their names in Viking Runes and reading many of the Viking Tales.
We have been really enjoying the Horrible Histories by Terry Deary.  I highly recommend the Audio versions - lots of fun sound effects!
