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.
