There are 5 different crowns included in the download which are perfect for both the upcoming coronation or for a fun Kings and Queens party.
There are 8 pages to print out, 5 with the different crowns, and 3 for head expanders. Each of the downloads need to be colored in and decorated.
King Charles III Coronation Paper Crown
This crown features the Union Jack with King Charles III written in the middle.
The word coronation is written on the headband, and to each side has the date 6th May 2023.
This crown is the easiest to cut out as there are no intricate shapes, so kids can probably do this on their own.
When the crown has been colored in there are headband expanders to attach to either side of the headband and cut to the child’s head size. You can use either glue or tape, but tape will hold better.
After you have created this why not encourage the kids to write about what if I were King for a day with our free writing prompts?
Coronation Crown for King Charles III
This crown features the date 06.05.2023 as that is how it is written in the UK. If you are in America though just remember it is May 6th, 2023, and not June 5th!
It has the Union Jack and the words King Charles III Coronation under the flag.
St. Edward’s Crown Paper Template
This crown is the most similar to the actual crown King Charles will wear.
The St Edward’s Crown is the crown Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II wore on her coronation back in 1953.
Fun Crown Printable
This crown can of course be used for the royal celebrations in May, but it can be decorated of course in any color the kids choose.
As you can see we have used coloring pens and glitter to decorate this one, but let your children decide.
Again the crown printable can be decorated with whatever embellishments, color, or glitter you have to hand.
We have used a mix of coloring pens, glitter, torn tissue paper, and pom-poms to decorate ours.
Fun Facts about the St Edward’s Crown for Kids
Here are some fun facts about the St. Edward’s Crown that kids might enjoy:

- The crown is made of solid gold and weighs almost 5 pounds! That’s about the same weight as a small bag of sugar.
