This make will help to develop your child's hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they design, paint and decorate the shield. You'll have to help out with the cutting out at the beginning as they will find it difficult to cut through cardboard. And when the shield is dry your little one can burn up some energy charging around pretending to be St George battling the dragon!
