England Activities for Kids

Our favorite way to start a cultural unit is with our activities bundles offered in our Etsy shop.

In the England activity bundle, you’ll find all you need to give your child a good overview of England, starting off with our England At a Glance sheet, which provides an overview of some of the important features of England (there’s also a review sheet that your child can complete at the end of the unit to see what they’ve learned).

England activities for kids- word search, I Spy game, matching game, flag craft, etc.

The bundle includes fun activities for kids like our word search, matching game, and I Spy worksheet.

I included two versions of the printables, one with the flag of England and one with the flag of the United Kingdom, so that you can adjust depending on which flag you want to focus on.

There’s also a flag craft for both the flag of England and the flag of the United Kingdom where kids can make their own miniature flags.

England Crafts for Kids

King’s Guard Puppet Craft

Let’s just into our crafts! First of all, we have these super cute King’s Guard puppet craft.

The King’s Guard, known for their iconic red tunics and bearskin hats, stand as stoic and ceremonial guardians outside royal residences, symbolizing the dedication and tradition associated with the British monarchy.

This is one of those immediately recognizable symbols that people think of when they picture England. When you make this puppet set, you have the chance to talk about what they guard’s symbolize and even have your own little changing of the guards reenactment.

Big Ben 3D craft

One of the most iconic landmarks of England is Big Ben, the famous clock tower in London.

Now you can make your own 3D Big Ben Craft with our easy-to-use template.

This is a really fun craft that leaves kids with their own standing version of this beloved symbol of England.

Celery Stamp Roses

The rose is the national flower of England, so it felt only fitting to include a rose craft in this England cultural unit.

And this celery stamp rose craft is absolutely adorable! The roses are formed using celery stamping and the leaves can be made with the child’s fingerprint in paint.

In the end you’re left with a really lovely art project that you can proudly gift or display.

Lion Paper Plate Craft

Although lions are not native to England, they are in fact the national animal.

The lion has long been used in heraldry and as a symbol of the royal family, representing strength, courage, and majesty.

As such, we’ve included this paper plate lion craft as one of our crafts for our England cultural unit for kids.

Use our free template to make a lion craft that is both cute and fearsome!

London City Skyline Watercolor Craft

For a fun England-themed art project, paint the London skyline with this city skyline watercolor craft for kids.
