Make your own Coronation nature crown
We all know King Charles III is a nature lover and environmentalist. Love or loathe the monarchy he has done a lot for our planet and we're hopeful he will champion mother nature during his reign.
To celebrate the nations big day why not make your very own crown to celebrate how amazing our native wildlife is?!
What you need:
• Strip of cardboard (long enough to wrap around your child's head with a small overlap)
• Glue stick or double sided sticky tape
• Leaves, flowers (not from the wild!) twigs, drawings...anything that celebrates nature!
What to do
Measure the card around the head it is to fit and make sure there is a small overlap so you can join it together. But keep it flat for now.
You can cut it into pointy zig-zag shapes, make it as decorative as you like or leave it with straight edges.
Now, head out into the garden or the park or the woods - wherever is accessible to you - and collect lots of different textures, colours and shapes.
You could find leaves, twigs, blossom, dandelions, seed pods...anything that you find easily without disturbing nature. Please don't pick wildflowers (other than weeds) or from other people's gardens. If you're not sure, leave it where you find it.
Once you have your brilliant collection, lay your crown flat and add wither a few strips of double sided tape or lots of glue.
Stick on all of your natural jewels to make an attractive design. You could add some drawings too or use our print out to add some of our favourite British wildlife amongst the foliage.
Once finished decorating, stick the. two ends of the crown together so it it circular - staples work best but you can use tape or glue too.
Wear your crown with pride and show off your love for our natural world and British wildlife.
