Like so many girls, my daughter loves fairies. I couldn’t wait to have fun with a simple kid craft that I knew she would love.
This simple fairy craft turns out super cute! And afterwards you can use them in a fairy race.
- Craft Sticks
- Clear Tape
- Permanent Markers
- Crayons or Colored Pencils
- Drinking Straws (You will need 2 sizes, one a bit wider than the other.)
- Fairy Wings (Make your own or download these Fairy Wings.)
Once you gather all the materials for your craft stick fairies, it’s time to get busy.
Use permanent markers to decorate the craft sticks with faces and colorful dresses.
Then decorate your fairy wings with crayons and colored pencils. Once the wings are finished and cut out, use a looped up piece of clear tape to stick the wings to the fairy’s back.
Cut a 1 1/2 inch long piece from one of the wider drinking straws. Flatten one end of the straw and wrap tape around the straw and craft stick to secure it to the back of the fairy. (See image below.)
To make your fairy fly, stick one of the thinner drinking straws into the straw that is attached to your fairy, lay the fairy flat on the table, and blow.
We had lots of fun creating and racing our fairy craft as one of the fairy birthday party games for my daughter’s party.
And, if not everyone is a fairy fan, you can easily turn them into butterflies, dragonflies, or even a little dragon like my son did. (See that red dragon on the left that my son made?)
- Having trouble getting your fairy to fly? Check to make sure the straw you are blowing in is only lightly stuck into the attached straw. Also, make sure there aren’t any air leaks in the straws.
I hope your child enjoys this simple fairy craft as much as mine did.
