Jousting

Top Tips

1. First, you need a target. This can’t be a real person as you don’t have real metal armour to protect them. Make a practice dummy, the knights did use these sometimes, they made a kind of straw man.
2. Use old clothes and paper to make the target dummy.
3. Make your lance from bamboo or a stick with a soft ball tied on the end. We used tin foil instead of a soft ball.
