- Hard plastic – e.g. fruit punnets
- Bottles & cans
- Paper & cardboard (though a lot of this may be “food dirty” and you may need to put it in the regular bin

How to make your Royal Crown for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
After downloading the templates for this crown, colour in all three parts of the crown and jewels. Have fun with pens, pencils and watercolours! Make your paper crown truly spectacular!
When you have finished coloring your paper crown, start cutting out the crown. Make sure to cut the top parts (that will look like feathers) up to the jewel chain (see photo).
Glue the three parts of the crown together. You can add tape from the inside to make it sturdier. Then, punch out the holes we will use for the split pin to hold together the top part of the crown. Put the main body of the crown to the side.
Time to craft the top part of your Paper Crown!
Fold the top along the line and then cut. Before gluing shut the top part make sure to fold the bottom to a 90° angle. The bottom part will then be glued on top of the crown.
Find the two white circles on the jewels page right next to the top part of the crown. Make a small cut with your scissors or if you have craft knife (get your parents to help if using a craft knife). Then push the split pin through one of the paper circles.
From the bottom of the crown start pinning the smaller flaps/feathers.
In the top photo you can see what it looks like from the inside of the crown. Now start adding the longer “feathers”/flaps on to the split pin. Add the 2nd paper circle and split the pin so it will hold all flaps in place.
Add glue to the bottom part of the top and glue it on top of the crown.
All that’s left now is to add as many jewels as you like where ever you like!!! Have fun!
