In the run up to Christmas there is often the need for some simple costumes. Here's a very simple crown for a king or queen that's also sturdy enough to wear for more than five minutes.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Gold cardstock
Red cardstock
Tissue paper
Glue
Stapler

Method
Cut some gold card with zig zag points along one side. If you're doing this activity with lots of children, you don't need to measure up for each head as the crown will have an extra band at the back.

Cut different colours of tissue paper into squares to make jewels.

Glue and stick on the coloured tissue paper.

Using a strip of red card (or any colour you like), staple it to one end of the crown. Using a stapler is more robust then glue or tape.

Roughly check the circumference of the child's head and then staple the other end of red card. Don't make it too tight, a little give is more comfortable to wear.

Crowns aren't just for Christmas and make a great dressing up accessory for imaginative play.
