Old King Cole's Crown

This arts and crafts activity gives kids a chance to make their very own crown.

Their Old King Cole's crown can be decorated to be as simple or as ornate as they want it to be.

Here's some hings you'll need handy for them to create their very own Old King Cole's crown.

  • Piece of string at least 30" long
  • Poster board or heavy construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Crayons or markers
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Jewels, buttons, bows, lace, macaroni or any other crafts item

Use the string to measure your child's head and cut with a slight overlap.

Then take the string to mark the poster board or construction paper the right length needed for the crown.

Cut the poster board or construction paper to the marked length.

Draw zig zag lines or curves along on edge of the cut section.

Cut along the lines to create the top of the crown.

Allow your child to decorate their crown however they would like.

Let the crown dry.

Staple the ends of the crown together with a little overlap to fit your child's head.

There you have it! A crown fit for a King!
