This month, those in the U.K. will be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.  The Diamond Jubilee marks the 60 years of the Queen’s reign. The only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee was Queen Victoria in 1897!

Click here for ideas and instructions for kids’ Jubilee-related crafts including: make your own crown, a state coach craft, paper chains, a Union Jack bag, your own royal barge for the Jubilee flotilla and more! Kids (and adults as well) can also send a congratulatory message to the Queen by clicking here.

To learn and teach more to kids about the Jubilee, there’s a great page on the event’s official website that covers everything from the Commonwealth Time Capsule to the Queen’s history,  and even quizzes to test your knowledge of the Queen. For all of that and more, click here.

In honor of the Jubilee, the Jubilee Woods Project, launched by The Woodlands Trust, is creating a 450-acre public wood in Leicestershire. They are also aiming to plant six million trees across the U.K., to create hundreds of new woodlands. To learn more about the project and how you can help, visit The Woodlands Trust site here.

Events in honor of the Jubilee will be taking place across the U.K. to find events in your area, click here and here.
