Have some fun

If you are looking for inspiration for home made fun, then visit the Coronation website for children's activities for all ages including dot-to-dot, word searches and a whole raft of colouring ideas.

But why stop there? There are home-made bunting templates, links to the Coronation celebration playlists and you can even get busy in the kitchen with recipe ideas, as well as print your own invitations and greeting cards. 

Are you ready to enter the Coronation Creative Challenge?  This is your chance to show your creativity and share how you will be celebrating the Coronation. There are lots of ways to get involved, from making your own street party bunting, creating a recipe fit for a King or designing a royal invitation.

Share your creations for a chance to feature in the Creative Challenge gallery, either online or you can email in your entry.

Share online using the hashtag #CoronationCreativeChallenge and tag the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DMCS) using @DCMS on Twitter or @dcmsgovuk on Facebook or Instagram. 

Email your entry to coronation@dcms.gov.uk adding Coronation Creative Challenge in the subject line, remembering to include your first name, age and town, plus a photo or video of your entry. 

Ideas Foundation, an educational charity, has invited schools and colleges to be part of the Coronation Generation and take part in a poster design challenge to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.

Submitted designs should reflect four key themes - community, diversity, sustainability and youth. Over the Coronation weekend, selected posters will be displayed across hundreds of digital poster sites, donated by Clear Channel UK, with the potential to be viewed by thousands of people each day. The challenge deadline is 30 April.
