What Is The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee?
The Platinum Jubilee marks 70 years of a monarch's reign. It's a significant milestone, and Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, will be the first British monarch to reach it. There’s even an extra Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday on Friday 3rd June.
With street parties taking place across the UK, you might be looking for fun royal-themed activities to help you all celebrate. If you’re hosting your own event, or want some fun activities for your family, here are our favourite Royal Jubilee Craft & Cooking Activities to help get the party started.

4. Decorate With A Platinum Jubilee Door Wreath
If you’re having a street party, why not decorate your doors on the day? Proving that wreaths are not just for Christmas, we love this idea from Little Button Diaries for a Jubilee-themed door wreath. To make your own, raid the recycling, cut a circle out of card (cereal boxes would work well) and decorate with everything red, white and blue.
5. Whip Up Some Red, White, And Blue Pom Poms
Pom poms are another classic craft activity that kids will love. Give yours a Jubilee twist by making them with red, white and blue wool. You can then string them up to make pom pom party bunting.
