Little kings or queens will enjoy making and decorating their own crowns. It's a cheap and easy activity for a rainy day which keeps the children entertained for a while to make the crown and then play dress ups with it after. We added a design using embossing powder and stamps but you could embellish using paint, pens, stickers, or any other decoration items.

Draw a design for the front of your crown in the middle of the piece of card. Draw a rectangular strip on either side. We made a spiky zigzag for the king and a more rounded shape for the queen.

Cut out and wrap the band around the child's head to work out the right size. Trim the band to the right size leaving a little extra to be able to overlap the ends to join securely.
Decorate the crowns with pens, stickers, gems etc. We had a go at using an embossing stamp, embossing powder and heat gun to make our metallic design.
