Colour, create and decorate

Bring the past to life with your imagination and unleash your creativity with these downloadable activity sheets.

  • Mary, Queen of Scots had a vast collection of outfits and loved to dress up. Become a 16th-century fashion designer and create a dress for Mary.
  • Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where he hosted balls, dinners and great ceremonies. Become an artist and imagine a setting where you might see the Prince.
  • Queen Victoria and Prince Albert loved collecting art, and they also enjoyed picking up a pencil or brush and doing some painting and drawing. Imagine you are an artist who has been asked by the royal couple to draw their portraits.
