Create and personalize your own gauntlet inspired by knights in shining armour.
We’re throwing down the gauntlet by challenging kids to make their own customized hand and arm protectors. Take a break from admiring shining Renaissance suits and swords in the Museum’s Armour exhibition. We’ll show you how to craft a gauntlet using card stock and paper fasteners instead of plate metal and rivets — no metalsmithing skills required! Find out why effective and practical armour requires a balance between mobility and protection.
