We first used this craft as part of the Go Fish “Kickin It Old School” VBS. Click here to learn more about that program.

After testing this craft in our children’s ministry, I learned that you will need extra paper strips for most of the children. So be sure to print out the extra crown strips template above and have them on-hand.

This activity worked well with younger children. The preschoolers also enjoyed it but we had the class leaders precut their template to remove scissors from the project.

You should have a backup supply of staplers for this project in case of jamming. Most children will need help from the workers to staple the project together. If you are short on volunteers, I would suggest using tape instead of staples.

For an easy variation, you could use construction paper or different color card stock. Then you can have the kids decorate their project with stickers or foam craft pieces.

    Thank you! This is awesome. We’re doing a lesson on praising Jesus as he made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem. This is perfect for illustrating our point.

    It’s great to find simple yet fun craft activities for children, where the adult doesn’t have to do most of it! Our theme is ‘God is King’ so this is perfect, thanks Tony.

    Thank you so much, I’m going to use this tomorrow when I teach the children about Israel demanding a king, and use the verse Psalm 10v16 “The Lord is King for ever and ever.”

    I’m going to use the crown craft to remind the children about our lesson on Humility and King Nebuchadnezzar.

    God knows our needs. I teach a Mustardseed class once a month for 3 year olds along with other volunteers. We take turns. Finding your website has benefited me tremendously, and inspired my own creativity. Thank you for your love of God Children

    My class is having their Christmas party today with the theme, “Happy Birthday Jesus.” This crown will make a perfect party hat today. I am using the wordless one and I will write in “Jesus is My King.” Thank you for this idea, I know the kids are going to love it. God bless and Merry Christmas!

  9. Andrea Walker-Davis says

    I bless the name of our Lord and Savor Jesus Christ for you. The youth of our church is preparing for our 2012 Christmas Program. Our theme is Take Me to the King, what a fun activity the making of the crown with the younger group of students.

    We worked on the crown craft this past Sabbath and it was a great hit with the children, they had sooo much fun decorating and the older one cutting them out. We provided stickers and they enjoyed wearing their crowns after craft time. Thank you very much for your commitment to childrens ministry.
