King’s Guard Paper Template

The paper King’s Guard doll helps kids with their cutting and pasting skills, as well as the opportunity to get creative with other materials too – like sticking on pieces of fabric or sequins or using glitter glue.

If you are going to be celebrating over the Coronation weekend (May 6-8) this would be a fun activity for that, and don’t forget to grab the Free King’s Coronation Printable Decorations and Bunting Flags that I’ve made for you!

Of course, you also need to download the Build King Charles III printable too!

How To Use the Build the King’s Guard Paper Template

The regular-size printable is for children that are more skilled at cutting.

The large size should be a lot easier for younger children. 

Or you can cut them out for them.

Of course, you know your children, so will know what suits them best!

Once cut, place the pieces in the correct order to figure out where everything goes before sticking them in place.

You can stick the pieces together with a glue stick, or sticky tape.

I like using this roller glue because it is easy to use and has less sticky mess!

For an extra crafty dimension, why not mount the character onto a larger piece of paper and use other craft materials to embellish it?

For example, glitter, furry fabric, craft foam, or tissue paper to name a few.

You can use a laminator and laminate the pieces if you like and use them over and over again.

Why not use split pins to construct the characters instead of glue so that the character becomes moveable!

You could use popsicle sticks and regular size characters to make little puppets for role-playing or storytelling.

You could attach the characters to some ribbon or string and hang them as bunting around the room for a Coronation party!

Or why not number each piece and turn it into a fun game with dice? Throw the dice and each time a number is rolled, you take that piece – the first one to complete their character is the winner!

Most of all, just have fun with this King’s Guard printable!

Download your chosen printable from the list further down the page (they’re surrounded by a purple box), and print onto thick paper or thin card. Cut the pieces out, then build a King’s Guard!
