An Illuminating Project

margeuriteOur friends from Restoration Place invited us to make Illuminated Letters with them. It’s a medieval art form you can read all about in the book, Margeurite Makes a Book. We read the book before heading off to our friends’ house to make our own letters.

Wanting to make the experience a good one for my young children, I took it upon myself to print out pre-designed letters they could color. I knew coloring would be their favorite part. And I figured if they liked the art, they could progress into creating their own letters. Turns out decorating the pre-formed letters was just enough fun for them. They turned out really well, too!
