We are seeking the help of volunteers with this years Known World Children's Fete at Pennsic. The Fete will be on July 31, 2013 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Great Hall. Can you sing a song, dance a jig, paint a face, smile and laugh a lot, color a picture, have fun or any sort of other activities? Then we could use you.
We are truly in need of individuals or groups that can offer their time to run and/or sponsor activities (arts and crafts, games, dancing, supplies, prizes, etc.). Some of the popular activities are:
• Face painting • Fighters for foam sword play • Storytellers • Jugglers • Puppeteers
We are also looking for volunteers to:
• Assist with the sign-in for the children. • Persons to help endure the other volunteers are getting water and other refreshments • Fete security to ensure registration/sign-in and safety. • Assistance with set-up and/or break-down. (To assist with set-up, please be at the Fete by noon)
For supplies, we are in the need of:
· Foam swords
· Paper towels
· Dixie Cups
You do not have to be there for the entire 3 hours... but any help you may offer would be greatly appreciated. The Fete is great fun. If you want action and excitement, this is the place for you!
If you cannot physically volunteer at the Fete but you, your household, local group, Barony or kingdom would still like to help in some way... maybe sponsoring an activity will be the best way for you to assist us in having a wonderful Fete.
Please continue to encourage and promote participation in the Children's Fete! If you will be at Pennsic, but you had not previously volunteered with the Children's Fete this year, we are asking you to please reconsider.
Thank you for your time, effort and consideration in this matter and the fete as a whole! Please contact me offline if you are interested in volunteering or sponsoring and activity you may contact me. Herrin Emeludt Hansler, at email@example.com

Greetings! It's my first time posting here as I kind of dropped out of using LJ since my son was born last year, but I"m trying to get back to it. I've been super busy with working full time, having a 3+ hour commute and still trying to work on projects and participate on Royal Retinue. It's been even more difficult as my beloved has lost interest in the SCA so I either bring my son and deal with his care solo, or if I'm booked with lots of responsibilities I leave him home with daddy.
So far I've been really blessed as there are a lot of people around us who love babies, and my son specifically. I've been able to ask in advance and get help in 1-3 hour increments at events so I can still participate in other ways as well and know that I won't be stuck or be scrambling on site for help. I've also been really blessed in that in addition to what I've made him we were gifted with a very generous amount of handmade garb for him, so he's often even better outfitted than I am!! :)
I've had to shift my eventing at night to only being around camp, as I don't feel at all comfortable with leaving him unattended while he's sleeping for anything longer than a biffy run, even though he generally sleeps through the night. I've started aiming for camping with other friends who tend to socialize in camp rather than wandering so I'm not left alone if I don't feel like going to bed when my son does.
What has changed for you in how you event? Are there any tips that have helped make it easier?
I find myself taking my daughter to her first Lillies this summer. She is very much so the child who reacts poorly to bites and stings, invariably scratching til she bleeds, or swelling etc. I am pondering her garb.
Would you think pants, that have a gathered ankle, or tights, would be better under her dresses? The child is nine now.
We are heading to Pennsic next week and we are looking for other homeschooling/unschooling families to hang out with. The kids are 12 (Tristan) and 10 (Bridget). We're fairly new to the SCA, but have been homeschooling since they were born.
It would also be cool to learn more about youth activities for their ages. They are bringing their bows, so archery is definitely on the list. Bridget is interested in some of the craft-type classes, as well as dancing - are kids her age (10) welcome at these, even if they're not designated as youth classes?
Any feedback or info would be helpful. Thanks!
