Family Crests or Coat of Arms

In continuing our study of the Middle Ages and the importance of family names, we made family crests or coat of arms.  We learned that the primary colors used on these were red, blue, black, green, purple, gold, and silver…bright colors only no pastels!  Usually they only consisted of two colors and simple lines.  The Shelbys and our new friends the Battaglias came over to do the craft with us. So I showed them examples of their families’ crest.
