Cutting, sticking, decorating, gold or silver card and jewels - what more could one need for this very royal crown craft! Of course this is a perfect craft for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022, or perhaps for a fairy tale topic?
It's a fun birthday party activity too. Just cut out the crowns in advance (with each child's name written on the back to avoid confusion later) and provide a table full of glue pots and lovely shiny bits and pieces! Tackle the craft near the beginning of the party so that there is time for them to dry, and children can then take their finished crowns home at the end of the party.
For a Platinum Jubilee craft, you could include number stickers for "70", lots of silver jewels and sequins and glitter and tiny Union Jack flags to glue on!
You will need:
- Gold or silver card (silver for the Platinum Jubilee!)
- Glitter, gems, stickers
- One of our templates (optional)
- Use one of our templates to help you cut out a crown from gold or silver card. Decorate the crown with glitter and gems.
- If you like, you could cut a strip of card to go around your head and glue your crown to it so it can be worn.
