Craft a Royal Reading Crown
Women’s liberation may have created bold female heroines, but check out the picture books in your local library, and you’ll see that princes and princesses, such as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, have never quite gone out of style.
Want to give those reading legends a little learning oomph? Here’s a hands-on phonics craft for your child to enjoy, and keep. While you're at it, you can point out that crowns are also worn by mighty kings... and mighty, independent-minded queens as well!
What You Need:
- Disposable aluminum pie plate
- Craft glue
- Flat craft “jewels”
- Glitter glue in a dark color, such as red or blue
- Polyester quilt batting (available in sewing supply stores)
- Black permanent marker
