How To Make A Crown

We all know that Kings and Queens wear crowns.

The Tuis group got to make their own crowns and then for writing they wrote instructions so you can make your own.

How to make a crown
By the Tuis

You will need:
A pair of sisscors

A piece of cardboard

A little bit of PVA Glue

A pencil
A stapler

Some decorations like glitter, jewels and feathers

What to do:

1. Draw a crown shape on the piece of cardboard.

2. Cut out the crown shape carefully.

3. Add your decorations using the glue to help it stick.

4. Let the glue dry.

5. Pull the sides of your crown together and staple so it becomes a crown.
6. Wear your beautiful crown!

After we wrote our instructions we also got to write a recount. Here are some of our favourite sentences.

The Tuis got to make crowns with Mrs Mitchell. By Sain

We made our crowns because our topic is about Fairytales. Queens and kings like to wear crowns. By Michael

We had to get cardboard, scissors, PVA glue and decorations like glitter, sequins and feathers. Miss Walters got the decorations from the $2 Shop. By Alex

“My favourite part was the glitter because it was very messy.” Sain

“I liked having my photo taken” Alex

“Choosing the decorations was fun, there was a lot to choose.” Michael


  1. Hi Tuis group

    Your crowns look great. I am sure you had lots of fun making them. I will follow your instructions and make some with the children in Room 3. I enjoyed reading your lovely stories especially about the messy glitter. Looking forward to reading more of your awesome work

  2. Hi Rising Stars!
    We liked your writing. We liked the way you numbered your steps, it will make it easier for people to read. Then people will know it is not a story, but a set of instructions. We are learning to write instructions too. We might be able to follow your steps to make a crown!
    Thanks :)
