Purim Crown Crafts for Kids
Kids can create a crafty crown to celebrate Purim! If your kiddo is looking for a way to dress up and act out the story of this holiday, check out these easy art activities.
Paper Plate Crown
Start with a dinner-sized paper plate. Your child can draw on the plate with crayons or colored pencils. While markers will add plenty of color, these marks could easily transfer onto your child’s hair, skin or clothes. Use scissors to make a hole at the center of the plate. Draw triangles, with each point starting at the hole. Extend the lines down to the beginning of the ridge of the plate to create a brim. The drawing will look like a pie divided into equal pieces. Cut a slit on each line. Fold the slits back to make a pointed crown.
Easy Paper Crown
Position a large sheet of construction paper horizontally. Draw a pointed crown shape that extends half-way up the paper. Cut the crown out. Use a hole punch to make two holes on each end of the paper. These should line up perfectly when you fold or curve the paper around. Your child can draw designs on the paper or add faux jewels with glitter, sequins and glue. Curve the paper around and tie the crown together with two ribbons.
Make a tiara type of crown with your child’s plastic head band. Fold a piece of card stock paper in half. Draw triangles, with the bottom starting at the fold. Cut the triangles out. Cover the inside of the triangles with glue and fold each one around the headband. Press the triangles together to complete the crown!
