Want to know what you can do to mark the coronation of King Charles III?
With the coronation of King Charles III just around the corner, many are wondering how they can celebrate.
And can you blame them? It’s been a while since there was last a coronation in the UK, so the celebration activities aren’t exactly a force of habit.
Rather than letting the day slip by unmarked, here is a list of ways you and your family can celebrate the coronation this weekend.
Fun for the kids
Royal Arts & Crafts
There are lots of activities that the kids can get involved in this weekend.
Particularly those involving arts in crafts.
For some inspiration, try making:
- Crowns using strips of paper
- Paper flags using rectangles of paper and lolly sticks.
For tips and alternative methods, check out three ways to make a homemade flag.
For more inspiration, including card carriages and homemade bunting, check out this article from Twinkl on 10 Regal Coronation Crafts.
Writing letters and cards to Buckingham Palace
The King also takes a great interest in correspondence with his subjects. Writing letters and cards to send to Buckingham Palace are a great way to celebrate the occasion.

Fun for everyone
For some activities that people of all ages can participate in, look no further than
Creating a time capsule
Take objects and souvenirs that remind you of 2023 and the royal weekend (maybe even some of your crafts) and bury them in the garden so that, in years to come, you can look back on this time with fondness and nostalgia.
This could include a family photo, money, letters, newspapers and stamps.
Place it all in a secure container and bury it to be dug up in future.
For a step-by-step Time Capsule building (and burying) guide, check out this article from Millets.
Hosting a garden party
To celebrate a royal occasion, there is nothing better than a street or garden party.
While the date to register a road closure to host your street party has passed, there may still be one in your area.
Failing that, a good old-fashioned garden party never goes amiss.
Just don’t forget the bunting, finger sandwiches and scones!
