Kids love to dress up, and play make believe and more and more research suggests kids these days aren’t getting enough old fashion play like make believe, so make these crowns and get to it!
- Gather your materials. I am using 2 pieces of card stock scissors, glitter, foil star stickers and crayons. You can use glue or even staples to fasten the two pieces together but I am using double stick tape because in my experience no kid wants to wait for their crown to dry!
- Have your child young or older decorate the crown with the crayons and stickers. Wait on the sparkles though. *** Please do not let little toddlers play with stickers, they need to be past the things go in the mouth stage for them. They are a choking hazard. I know my guy choked on one a few months ago , so learn from my stupidity and put them on yourself if your children or skip them all together.
- After they are done decorating you can put the two pieces together, decorated side down and draw your crown design on the back, and cut it out. The reason I do it this way is that many a crown has ripped while coloring it where there are sharp edges to catch.
- Fasten the pieces together, add glitter!
- Fit it to your child’s head and fasten the other edges.
The Grand old Duke of York!
The Grand old Duke of York,
he had 10000 men,
he marched them up to the top of the hill,
and he marched them down again!
When they’re up they’re up,
and when they’re down they’re down,
and when they’re only half way up,
they’re neither up nor down !

“Where the wild things are “by Maurice Sendak is a classic about imagination and the power of childhood. Max imagines himself the king of his own land!
