Creative children designed handmade birthday cards to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday during a workshop at the Windsor and Royal Borough Museum.
Museum staff kicked off the session, which took place at Windsor Guildhall, by telling 15 youngsters about the life of Britain’s longest reigning monarch.
Children then got a close-up look at a commemorative glass blue beaker which was given as a gift to every child in the borough to mark the Queen’s coronation in 1953.
The workshop ended with a card-making session which saw the young artists design their own special birthday tributes.
The children then popped the cards into an envelope and hand-posted them to Windsor Castle.
Louisa Knight, museum resources officer at the Windsor and Royal Borough Museum, said: “All the children knew all about the Queen’s birthday and were really interested to hear about her life.”
The workshop took place on Thursday, April 7.
