King Tutankhamun collar and headdress

We read about King Tutankhamun as part of ‘Egypt week’ – see my post on books for Egypt week – and my 4yo loved the idea of a young king who wasn’t much older than him! So we decided to make a collar and headdress so that he could dress up as King Tut. We used a paper plate and some craft jewels for the collar, and a paper plate and some paint for the headdress. Then we added a piece of card to make the headdress wearable, and some string for the collar. My son even wore this into his nursery for world book day!

Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
