Our themes this week in MFW have been Rocks and Jewels. Today's activity was making a crown. I wasn't sure how I was going to convince Corbyn to make a crown but he wasn't at all hesitant about making one to be a Prince. lol :-)
I took 11x14 sheets of poster paper for the "cardboard" and folded them in half long-ways and cut them, so I had 2 strips for each crown. I taped the strips together with clear packing tape (my kids are super-hard on stuff... scotch would NEVER hold long lol). Then measured heads and trimmed the strips to fit.
Fold the strips in half and draw the desired design on one side and cut out. Ta-Da! Lol Zoë wanted hearts, Corbyn wanted snowmen. lol Very unique. :-)
Let them paint them and let it dry. Once they were dry, we hot-glued gems, beads, pom-poms, googly eyes, etc on them wherever they wanted. Then we taped the ends together. :-)
