I wanted to come up with something to keep kids entertained at my daughter’s first birthday. Since they were all older than her, I went into it not knowing much of what their interests would be. Keeping in line with the Royal First Birthday Theme, I decided to have a crown craft station where children would be able to design their own crowns to use as props in the photo booth and take home to erase and redo over and over again. It was a hit! The adults joined in on the fun too.
I know I have photos of the other crowns. I’ll upload them once I find them!
- Chalkboard paper (Michael’s)
- Party hats in any design ($.99 Store)
- Spray paint in gold or color of your choice
- Image of crown to stencil (Google search)
- Spray the party hats in color of your choice.
- Cut out a 2.5” horizontal slit along the bottom of each hat (this will be where the crown sits so you might have to do a trial and error run).
- Print out a crown image from Google or use a stencil large enough for kids to draw on and decorate
- Trace the crown on the chalkboard paper fitting as many as you can on a sheet
- Cutout the crowns
- Set out on children’s table with craft station supplies outlined below
Craft Station Supplies:
- Poms (Michaels) in color scheme of party
- Elmer’s Washable School Glue
