Oscar's Mum and Dad (Linda and James, our round-the-corner neighbours) are a bit party mad like us. So when the invitation came for Prince Oscar's Birthday Battle, we knew we were in for a good one.
The idea was very simple - the guests were instructed to make some armour out of cardboard and come dressed ready to do battle.
Linda and James had prepared flags (banners) for each army, and bendy swords to match (which were the take-home gift).
The armies marched to battle to the park at the end of the street where they constructed forts out of packing boxes around their Flag. The idea was to destroy the other army's fort and steal their flag while protecting your own. The first army to have two flags planted was declared the winner.
