L and I made these FAIRY FOLK this morning and she’s been playing with them all day long! She loves them!!! L has made up a house, a bed, a car for them…a phone, bathtub, table and chairs, a crib and even a change of clothes! Tomorrow we shall have a “Fairy Tea Party” in their honor. The fun never stops around here!
- wooden peg people
- acrylic paints
- felt or fabric scraps
- hot glue gun and glue
First, paint the fairies’ bodies.
Next, paint hair and eyes on the fairies. I tried to make each of ours a little different.
Then draw and cut a little fairy wing stencil. You can trace this on the felt or fabric before cutting out the wings. After a few, I just winged it! Ha! I liked having some big, some small. (Cut a few extras for fairy “outfits.”)
To complete the fairies, attach the wings to the bodies using just a touch of glue with your hot glue gun. Now, time to play!!!
A toy teacup was just the right size for a bath and one of WB’s socks made a roomy bed.
The fairies also enjoyed skating on this melted-bead ice rink and, of course, driving in their jam jar car.
A change of wings for the fairies…
I’ll be sure to post our Fairy Tea Party details later this week so your lil ones can join in the fun! Enjoy!
