The best monarchs have a golden sceptre to carry as a sign of their royalty! Here's one the kids can make themselves.
You will need:
2 Polystyrene balls
2 lolly (popsicle) sticks
PVA (white) glue
Glue the lolly sticks together to form a cross.
Glue a polystyrene ball on to each end of the cardboard tube.
Carefully cut a small slit in the top of one of the balls, fill with glue and push in the lolly stick cross.
When the glue is dry, paint your sceptre gold. Glue on lots of gems to decorate.
