Here’s a free printable that lets you design your own wedding dress.  Use stickers, glitter, crayons, markers, ribbons, lace, or jewels.  For inspiration, check out this article from British Vogue that shows royal wedding dresses through the years.

Have a Tea Party

Whether you use pretend tea or real tea, tea parties are a fun way to engage little ones.  For younger kids, you can sing I’m a Little Tea Pot.  Older kids may enjoy tasting a variety of different teas with sugar, honey or cream.  You could even take your party a step further by baking scones or lemon elderflower cake together.  Click here for a recipe for lemon elderflower cake from HGTV.

Wear Your “Crown” Jewels

Don some play jewelry with your little one and pretend you are at St George’s Chapel rather than your living room as you watch some wedding coverage.  Or make your own necklaces by stringing beads, colored noodles, or cereal.  Making jewelry is a great fine motor activity for little ones!

Make a Fancy Hat

Hats are a must at royal weddings.  Here’s my easy, spring hat craft that you can make out of construction paper:  Kids Craft: Tea Party Hat
