Cutting, sticking, decorating, gold or silver card and jewels - what more could one need for this very royal crown craft!
We've built up quite a collection of royal crafts at Activity Village, having celebrated a Royal Wedding, a Diamond Jubilee, and a Coronation in recent years. Many of the crafts you find below can easily be adapted for a fairy tale theme. The crown crafts could accompany a visit to the Tower of London to see the Crown Jewels. Or have a go on the King's Official Birthday, perhaps?
