DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Random Thought: Guy Fawkes Day

Guy Fawkes Day Paper Craft

We have viewers all over the world and on occasion they ask for a craft or two to be added for celebrations from their neck of the woods. A few years back, I added Guy Fawkes Day. I hope a few people get some use out of it this year too! (http://www.dltk-holidays.com/guyfawkes/index.htm)

There’s a relatively famous poem that sort of goes with the day (yes, I like poems *smile*)

Guy Fawkes Day Poem

Remember, remember, the 5th of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot ;
I know of no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
 
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
‘Twas his intent.
To blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below.
Poor old England to overthrow.
By God’s providence he was catch’d,
With a dark lantern and burning match
 
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, let the bells ring
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, God save the King!
 
Hip hip Hoorah!
Hip hip Hoorah!

Wife, mom and the woman behind the scenes of the DLTK's Crafts for Kids websites.  The websites are a terrific hobby -- run by (me) Leanne, a mom with two girls as my official craft testers and my husband as my technical support.  DLTK are the first initials of each of the people in my family (I'm the L!).  Whenever we send out little cards or whatnot, we sign 'love DLTK' ... when I started the website I used the initials.  Had I known the website would get actual strangers visiting it, I would have picked a less mysterious name but we're all stuck with it now!
