10 crafts for kids to celebrate the Queen’s Sapphire Jubilee

crafts for kids to celebrate the Queen's Sapphire Jubilee

Last month, on February 6, the anniversary of the day she became Queen, Elizabeth II has reigned for 65 years. She is the first British monarch to reach their Sapphire Jubilee, with royal gun salutes to mark the historic day. I heard some rumours that we might be getting a public holiday this year to celebrate her Sapphire Jubilee. This would be great for the children. I don’t remember celebrating the Queen’s Silver Jubilee back in 1977 as I was too young but it’s always fun to create memories at special occasions.

The Royal Mint is marking the 65th anniversary with a range of specially designed Sapphire Jubilee commemorative coins, as the Royal Mail issues a Sapphire Blue £5 stamp. I’m sure there will be some other special commemorative items to collect too.

I hope we do something otherwise we will have to wait for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which seems a long way off. I’ve brought together 10 fun crafts for kids to celebrate the Queen’s Sapphire Jubilee this year.

    I am old enough to remember the silver jubilee. For years afterwards you could see the marks on one of the roads we walked home from school on, where they had marked out distances for races during their street party. They seemed to have been allowed to use proper road marking stuff.
