Instructions

1. Start with a piece of aluminum foil approximately 12 in. x 20 in. (30 cm x 51 cm) or long enough to fit around your child's head.

2. Fold the long side over three times to make a 2 inch band. The top 2 inches will become the tips of the crown. (see below)

3. Trace shapes onto foil and cut them out to make "jewels" to decorate the crown.

4. Transfer a pattern onto the foil for the tips of the crown, or simply draw them by hand. I used a paper crown that came in a holiday popper!

6. Spread glue on the foil shapes and sprinkle glitter over the glue to make "jewels". This is a great fine motor activity!

7. Glue the "jewels" to the band.
