Children of a King

Last night we had a “Tangled” themed Family Home Evening, thanks to the idea I found HERE. I knew the minute I found it that it would be perfect for our family because it was simple and straightforward. The “hard” part was making the crowns, and honestly: I had the most fun with it. If we didn’t live so far away from any kind of store, and if gas prices weren’t so high… I would have just made a quick run into town and bought something.
While I was cleaning the house yesterday, I threw away an empty cereal box and I went through the end of a roll of paper towels. I took the cereal box and the paper towel roll and I went to work.
I free hand cut out the crowns, and then I added cut up pieces of the paper towel rolls to each of them using hot glue. I spray painted them grey.

I had to use whatever I had on hand. I wished I had a more metallic spray paint, but grey worked well enough. When they dried, I embellished each of them with craft scraps I had on hand.
The girl loved hers. She wore it all night.
The boy didn’t come around to liking it until right before bedtime, when a few of the embellishments had come off.

The pictures aren’t the best, but you get the general idea. The kids had a lot of fun with the lesson, and we all snuggled up in blankets to watch a family movie and eat banana pudding and vanilla wafers.
A great end to a great day.
