CONFESSION: I know everything there is to know about the British Royal family. Go ahead, ask me what Kate Middleton wore to the Christmas day church services, what bright, monochromatic matching skirt suit and hat the Queen wore on her last royal public outing, I know the answer. Okay, maybe I'm just a Royal family fashion expert. Speaking of royal fashion. . . . .
I found a picture book all about the Queen of England's underwear! I didn't know I needed a picture book about the Queen's undies until I read a picture book about the Queen's undies. It's glorious.
The Queen's Knickers by Nicholas Allen is a hilarious tale of how much the Queen loves her fashionable undies. She has a different pair for every occasion - including a corgi print pair for hanging around the royal apartment, a plaid woolen pair for when she travels to her Scottish home Balmoral, and a Union Jack print pair for visits with foreign dignitaries. #personalgoalsfor2017
One day, the Queen went on a trip, and her undies trunk got mixed up with a picnic basket, and the picnickers found underwear in their lunchbox instead of food! This book was fun for everyone - I loved the playful take on the Queen's fashion sense, and my kids are still at an age where saying the word "underwear" out loud is hilarious.
For a no-prep art project inspired by the story, let's use markers and crayons on white paper to design our own funny underwear! What crazy designs can your kids come up with?
