Have you ever seen a quail family walking in a straight line? It's adorable! We made this Quail Crown that would be a fun addition to a quail unit study or just because.

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Cardstock
  • Stapler

Create it!

Step 1: Cut a length of cardboard and staple it together to form a crown. Set aside until the last step.

Step 2: From cardboard, cut a shape that is roughly a half circle with a circle on top of it for the bird.

Step 3: Paint all but the top half circle of the bird and allow it to dry.

Step 4: Paint some dots to the bird body and a detail line to outline the unpainted portion of the bird's head.

Step 5: Cut additional pieces from cardstock for the bird's face - a leaf shape, two eyes, a plume, and a beak.

Step 6: Glue the plume to the quail's head.

Step 7: Glue the eyes and beak to the leaf shape to create the quail's face.

Step 8: Glue the face to the quail's head.

Step 9: Glue the quail to the band made in Step 1.

Such a fun bird to learn about and we like that it wears a little cap of its own - complete with plume!

A teeny, tiny crown for a teeny, tiny princess. We made this crown to fit a favorite bear but it could easily be customized to a different size for your little one's favorite!

Start with:

  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Pom Poms
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Create it!

Step 1: Measure the crown wearer's head and twist the ends of the pipe cleaner into a circle to fit. Snip off any ends.

 

Step 2: Twist another pipe cleaner around the band created in Step 1 and bend to a point. Twist around the band and create another point. Repeat as many times as you'd like to make points for the crown. Cut off end of pipe cleaner once the end is wrapped around the band.

Step 3: Glue pom poms to the pipe cleaner for a little added flair.

These are so easy and fun to make - for princesses of all sizes!
