Drawing the Queen on her 90th birthday

kids portrait of the Queen

This week we received another super box of craft supplies from Baker Ross. Included was a pack of Baker Ross Self Portrait blanks which are perfect for drawing friends, family or your favourite story book character.

With Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday next week, I challenged my children to draw a picture of the Queen. First they used pens to add her features and clothes.


They glued on white hair, “just like Nanny!” they said.

Then they added a gold crown.

They accessorised with sparkly jewellery and they were finished. My 6 year old asked if we were going to send them to the Queen. I’m sure she would love to see the finished result!
