Royal Crowns

I’m researching books and websites to find little kid party ideas for upcoming birthdays. I found a really cool idea in one of my children activity books called Days of Knights and Damsels: An Activity Guide by Laurie Carlson. She used a one gallon water or milk jug to make crowns. So on Sunday after looking at the diagrams and with kitchen shears in hand; I decide I should give it a try. A few snips here and there, some left over yarn and a hole punch we made a crown for a prince and for a princes from one jug. The kids were thrilled and have been wearing them nearly every day.

This looks like it could be a good form to design a costume crown for a masquerade or Halloween costume.
