This crown craft is easy peasy with minimal mess, and minimal supplies needed! You probably have everything you need at home already. If not, you can easily improvise and use a different color paper (or even computer paper) or whatever stickers you have lying around. Blue paper + fish or mermaid stickers, white paper for snow + Elsa & Anna stickers, even black paper + cars & trucks. Anything works!
Crayons or Markers
Green Construction Paper
Scissors (grownup or kid friendly)
Stapler or Tape
Step 1: Cut the construction paper in half. Then trim one edge of each half with scissors to make the grass. Depending on the age of your child they can do this (supervised) with kid friendly scissors. Draw a line down the middle if you are worried about them getting too excited and cutting all the way through.
Step 2: Snip at the edges of the grass to make it look more authentic, or don’t… this got tedious after awhile.
Step 3: Have your child color the grass with crayons or markers. Once they start to lose interest break out the stickers to add flowers, bugs, or anything else they like.
Step 4: Staple the two pieces together, then measure it around your child’s head to fit the crown.
