Crowns

Every royal needs the proper headdress. Provide each child with a plain cardboard or poster board crown shape and let them decorate the crowns any way they want. Have a station set up with tin foil, glue, paints, plastic coloured rhinestones, glitter and bright feathers. After the crowns have been set aside to dry for a bit, encourage the children to wear them for the remainder of the party.

Swords and Sashes

For another craft idea, have the boys decorate their own plastic swords. They can paint on designs or their initials to personalise the swords. If the girls would rather do something else, have them design their own sashes that they can wear around the party. With some craft glue, they can add rhinestones and glitter to the fabric. If they want to give themselves a regal name for the day, help them write it across the sash with glitter glue or paint.

Medieval Flags

Every royal family has its own crest. Give each child a rectangular poster board to design and paint his own family flag. When they are done, you can glue a wooden stick to the back so they can hold it. They will look like true aristocrats as they carry the flag with pride throughout the party.

Royal Treats

Instead of decorating cookies or cupcakes ahead of time, have the kids do it themselves. Have the kids draw on crowns, swords and wands with frosting. Designs can be embellished with edible sparkles or bright candies. Have them share the treats with one another or let them take them home. You can also use a cookie cutter to create crown or castle shaped cookies before the children decorate them.

Craft Stick Puppets

You will need just a few basic supplies to make miniature puppets that the children can keep. Have each child wrap a wooden craft stick with royal blue or bright pink fabric. They can tie a thin ribbon around the fabric or use a little glue to ensure the fabric stays on. Use pipe cleaners or yarn to make hair that will be glued to the sides of the top of the stick. Have the children cut out a small crown from poster board and decorate it before gluing it to the top of the stick. Finally, draw on a happy face with a marker to complete the prince or princess puppet.
