Princesses, kings and dragons, oh my!

We had a fun play date with some friends, everyone brought dress-up clothes and made crowns for our kings and princesses. The crown is simply a piece of construction paper cut in half with a zig-zag line, tape one side together, then decorate with stickers, felt pens and we punched some shapes out of tin foil to add a sparkle.

Fun! So simple, but so cute and exciting for the kids!

I love it! My kids are so into crowns and to make their own would be the crowning glory...dumb joke.
