Beefeaters for the Tower of London

I’ve been talking to the boys about the Tower of London over our ‘England week’, which particularly my eldest has been fascinated by. So I thought we should make some beefeaters so they could guard our Tower of London (also known as the climbing frame in the garden!).


For this I used a wooden spoon, some paint and some felt tips. I made one whilst the boys were playing in the garden, and then showed my preschooler who thought it was ‘so cool’ so wanted to make one himself. He had specific ideas on what he wanted his to look like!

If you want to have a go, here are links to the supplies we used. Please note that these are affiliate links, which means that if you purchase the items here I get a small commission at no cost to you.



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!
