Royal Crown Kids Craft

PicMonkey Collage crown 2

 As royal baby number 2 has just been born I thought I would share a crown craft to celebrate.  This was a craft that O made a couple of years ago, just before he was 2 (love looking at old photos of him when he was wee).

You’ll Need:

* Cardboard

* Scissors

* Paint

* Stapler/sellotape

* Sponges/roller

* Craft foam

* Glue

1.  Cut out a simple crown shape from cardboard, taped it down on the Tuff Spot and O used sponges and a paint roller to paint it.

2.  I then cut out a train shape and steam (he was obsessed about trains even then!) from craft foam and he glued them down onto the crown.

3.  Once it was all dry I measured it around his head and then stapled the two sides of the crown together, cutting off the excess.


Of course you can add whatever embellishments you would like including sequins, glitter and stickers.

Ta da, a cute crown!


I would love to see photos if you try making one too!

    What a lovely craft to welcome Princess Charlotte, I really wish I’d have been more on the ball last week and prepared some royal activities.

    Thanks so much for linking up to #toddlerapprovedtuesday this week, Leandra & Becky xx

    I love that you did this craft outside – that definitely keeps things cleaner! He looks so cute. I love looking at old pictures too, I can get sucked into it for hours!

    Very cute! At the moment anything placed on my tot’s head is immediately ripped off and hurled to the floor, but maybe next year 🙂

      Thank you! Yes, anything placed on my 15 month olds head is the same, maybe later this year he’ll keep it on! 🙂 x

    Aww what a lovely idea! Much easier than the crown I attempted to make Luke for his first birthday (disaster!) I think when he’s feeling a bit better, we’ll give this a go. And we’re still dreaming of our tuff spot hehe. Thanks for linking up to #ToddlerApprovedTuesday. Ray xx

      Get down to B&Q and get a cement mixing tray, exactly the same thing and cheaper at only £15! This was easy and fun to do for kids, but if you want to make a birthday crown yourself you can make one from felt really easily. I’ve got a post about birthdays coming up soon! 🙂 xx

    Love this crown – what a great craft activity and never thought of using a tuff spot for painting in – great idea! 🙂
