Easy Coronation craft
After downloading the King Charles III template, the first thing to do is design the glasses.
Get your kids or students to draw something that represents England to them.
Otherwise, they can colour, cut and paste the images provided.
Next, place the glasses on top of the face template, so that they know where to draw the nose and mouth.
There is no need to draw the eyes. Then they can finish drawing the hair and colouring the face, uniform, etc.
Finish off by gluing the glasses onto the face.
Ideal as part of a display, or bulletin, board.
