Supplies for Paper Crown

  1. Cut a pointed crown shape from construction paper. Use the entire length of the paper. We used yellow, but you can let your child choose their favorite color.

  2. Pour 2-3 colors of washable acrylic paint (we like this one from Crayola the best) on a plate for the child to paint their crown with.

  3. You can also provide sequins, rhinestones, and/or glitter to glue on the crown. But those can get quite messy, so that’s up to you.

  4. While the child is busy with their painting, take another piece of construction paper and cut it into long strips approximately 2 inches wide.

  5. Measure the child’s head to see how many strips you will need to wrap around their head.

  6. Staple that many together end to end.

  7. When their painting is done and dried, staple the strips to the sides of the crown.

  8. Measure their head one last time and place a mark where the strips should meet.

  9. Staple the two strips together then slide on the child’s head.

  10. Now enjoy the crown in pretend play for the rest of the day!
