Arrow "king For A Day" Crown For Dad

What You Need

Cardboard (you can use an old cereal box)

Aluminum foil





Construction paper

Sequins, glitter, etc. (optional)

One of Dad's hats

Piece of newspaper or other long paper

How To Make It

Cut a strip about one inch wide the whole length of the newspaper. You will use this to measure the circumference (distance around) your dad's head. Take the newspaper strip and place it around the inside of the hat. (Keep one end still with your thumb and cover the band part inside all the way around. Tear off any extra.) This is how long your crown will need to be to fit your father.

Cut the cardboard box apart into panels (flat parts.) Lay the two big panels next to each other with their "short sides" touching. Use your "newspaper ruler" to measure how long the crown needs to be. Trim off any extra length.

Cut another piece off of the newspaper (about five inches wide.) Fold about three inches over. Continue to fold the paper into three inch sections. When it is all folded, cut a "v" into the top of one of the "short" sides. Open the paper and see your crown pattern!

Trace your pattern onto the cardboard and cut it out.

Carefully cover the crown with aluminum foil.

Cut pretend "jewels" out of construction paper and glue them on your crown. You may even want to cut out letters to spell "dad" or "the king" or something else. Glue on sequins or glitter if you have them.

When you are finished decorating, get a grownup to help you staple the crown together.

Present the crown to your father at breakfast on Father's Day. (For some menu ideas, see our "Mother's Day Menu.") Make sure that you do your best to "serve the king" on Father's Day. Do some extra chores that would help your father or plan some time with your father on his special day.
