|Queen's Crown Supplies:|
We picked glow in the dark and dark blue beads. White and Dark Blue are the colors of the Israeli flag. We picked glow in the dark instead of pure white since most boys think ( and girls) that glow in the dark beads are great. Also it will look great at night when we dress up for either Purim or Halloween.
||Take 2 pipecleaners and twist
the two ends together to make on long stick.
| Add another gold pipecleaner under the first blue bead of row 2. Twist
neatly the end so it will not show.
|| See picture above
for adding next pipecleaner.
Take the first row's pipecleaners and twist the ends together to make a back of crown. The tinsel works like velcro to hold on the hair. Some children need a third pipecleaner to make the back longer.
|I did this project at camp.
Therefore I had to come up with something for the boys. The glow in the dark
beads are always a hit, especially with the boys. We often need a King's crown
for Purim. So we improvised.
(5 for larger head.)
|Row 1: Twist the ends of two pipecleaners to make one very long one. String the beads on in a pattern of B, 5G, B. 5 more times. ( 6 sets)|
2: Add a pipecleaner through the first Blue bead of row 1. Twist the end neatly.
String the beads: 4G, B, 4G, thread the pipecleaner through the next blue bead
of row 1. Repeat 5 more times. (6 total) You will have to add another
pipecleaner half way through by twisting them together.|
Take the ends of the first row of pipecleaners and twist to make the back of the crown. You may have to had another pipecleaner for larger heads.
| ||At a recent class
for 12 - 3 and 4 year olds, I modified the crown. |
We gave out a bowl with 13 glow in the dark pony beads. We put a cookie sheet full of assorted colors of pony beads in front of a group of 4. Less to spill and to reach. We counted together 1 from bowl and 5 from tray 6 times. Then we did the same for the top of the triangles. With the teacher twisting in the extra pipe cleaners as needed.
This crown worked for girls and boys.
