Show your patriotic spirit with these festive Fourth of July Crowns! A great group project, paper crowns are easy to make for kids of all ages and skill levels. Hooray for the red, white, and blue!
Tools & Materials
1 small roll each of red, white, and blue crepe paper (makes three crowns)
Kraft paper, long enough to wrap around each child’s head plus 2 inches, and about 7 1/2 inches wide
Thick white glue
Packing tape or similar (optional)
Step 1: Cut
Cut the kraft paper to appropriate length and width. Measure each piece so that it wraps around the child's head and then add 2 more inches before cutting for length. Then cut the width, so that each piece measures 7 1/2 inches.
Step 2: Fold
Fold cut kraft paper pieces into thirds so the resulting strip is about 2 1/2 inches wide and glue it closed.
Step 3: Tear
Tear crepe paper into approximately 4-inch strips, then roll strips into balls. Make enough balls to cover the paper strip.
Step 4: Glue
Working in small sections, spread glue onto each kraft paper strip and cover with the crepe paper balls. You can create a pattern or just put them on randomly. Cover the entire strip except about one inch on each end.
Step 5: Measure
Measure one more time around the child's head, and staple the paper strip closed into a crown shape.
Step 6: Finish
Finish covering the blank section of the crown with crepe paper balls. Use a piece of packing tape to cover the staples on the inside of the crown, so they don't get caught in the child's hair or scratch.
