Here's all the best Platinum Jubilee craft and activity ideas for kids to keep them busy over the Bank Holiday weekend.
If you've got kids, however, you may be struggling to think of ways to get them excited and involved in the celebrations.
And if, like us, you've left it until the last minute to consider crafts and activities for them, we've got you covered.
We've got tonnes of ideas for you and your little ones, including crown making, biscuit decorating and treasure hunts!
Get your kids involved with the Platinum Jubilee by getting them to write a letter to the Queen congratulating her on 70 years as Monarch.
Use this sheet from PlanBee for prompts in case they get stuck!
Grab all the pens and pencils out of the cupboards and get your kids to design a cake worthy of a Queen.
If you don't have a printer at home, you can draw out your own templates!
The kids will love this word search all about the Royal Family.
Make the game a little more fun and educational by looking up the meaning of each of the word with them.
Print out this crown template and get your kids to create a colourful crown for themselves.
Simply connect each end with tape once complete and they can pretend to be the Queen for the day!
Jazz up a game of hide-and-seek for the Platinum Jubilee weekend by hiding fake Crown Jewels in your house or garden.
Tip: If you haven't got anything that can act as the jewels, use tin foil to craft a crown, orb and sceptre.
If you've got time to bake over the weekend, create some simple plain biscuits (or buy some from the supermarket) which your kids can decorate for the Platinum Jubilee.
You should be able to pick up edible glitter, coloured icing pens and everything else in your local supermarket.
If you've got time, take your kids round to neighbours, friends and family to give the biscuits as a special Platinum Jubilee gift.
