3. If using cardboard from a box, peel off the top smooth layer to expose the internal ribbed surface. This can take quite a while! To save time use pre corrugated cardboard paper so it’s already done for you.

4. Paint the crown. Add a sprinkle of gold glitter to give it extra sparkle.

5. Whilst waiting for the crown to dry, practice roaring your terrible roars and gnashing your terrible teeth in preparation for the Big Wild Rumpus.

6. Once dry, stick the two ends together using double sided sticky tape.
