The Coronation of King Charles presents many opportunities for activities for the people you support from arts and crafts to enjoying tasty traditional food.
Decorate your care service with Union Jack bunting, tablecloths and offer handheld flags. Play classic British songs throughout the years or use a pre-set playlist on Spotify.
Serve a buffet with traditional food such as coronation chicken, Pimm’s or a non-alcoholic alternative and Victoria sponge cake.
Paint a royal portrait
Using these royal portrait frames, organise a painting session with the people you support. Can they paint a royal portrait of themselves, a friend or King Charles himself?
Can the people you support remember the Queen’s coronation or did they celebrate any Jubilees over their lifetime? Here are some facts about the Queen’s coronation, how much of it will be similar to today?
Many newspapers are likely to have a royal special segment for the coronation with photos of King Charles throughout his life. Using these and other available material online, go through King Charles’ life history. How many significant events or styles can the people you support remember?
Using card, cut and decorate a crown each with the people you support. If they were a royal, what would their crown look like? Alternatively, you can purchase already made crowns and decorate those with various crafting items.
Message for the King
What advice do the people you support have for the King? Or what would they do if they were a ruling monarch for the day?
