Ah, the Royal Wedding. Once so many months away, it’s now literally just around the corner. In the wee hours of Friday morning, Canadians across the country will be flipping on the television to tune in and watch Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the regal knot.
If getting up at 4 am to watch a wedding doesn’t rank high on your kids’ to-do list, we understand. But it doesn’t mean that they have to miss out on all the wedding fun! Thanks to the U.K. website Activity Village, kids can celebrate the happy couple with printable Prince William and Kate Middleton colouring pages, and re-enact the main event with wedding-ready paper dolls.
We love the idea for adorable royal wedding souvenirs. The collectible plates pictured here—featuring your wee one’s take on the bride and groom—are a snap to make using simple paper plates and markers. And what fine china set would be complete without matching royal wedding mugs? Just pick up a plain white mug (found at any dollar store) and some porcelain markers (from a craft supply store like Michaels), and leave the rest to your budding artist.
It’s not all about Will and Kate, though; your pint-sized prince and princess deserve to feel like royalty, too! A sparkly, handmade paper crown is an easy way to help them display their regal status. For kids with more advanced crafting skills, our origami flower project can help them create a beautiful bouquet, fit for a queen.
Will you be watching the Royal Wedding this week? Will your kids?
