Children love to play dress up and to pretend to be kings, queens, princes and princesses from medieval times. If your child enjoys pretend play, create a perfect medieval crown that can be customised to suit your child's particular tastes. Once finished, these medieval crowns can be used for dress up, as an accessory for a Halloween costume or in a school play.
Cut a piece of cardboard to the dimensions of 5 x 20 inches. Cut one edge of the cardboard so that the edge is jagged. Place the cardboard around your child's head to make sure that it fits. Cut off the extra length if it is too large.
Paint one side of the cardboard strip with Tempra paint. Allow the paint to dry completely. Decorate the crown using glitter glue, sequins and plastic jewels. Allow the glue to dry completely.
Staple the crown into a circle.
Cut a piece of crepe paper into a 12-inch square. Glue the edges of the crepe paper into the inside rim of the crown. Push the crepe paper so that it sticks up when the crown is worn.
