These butterfly wings are an easy kids craft for the summer or anytime you are studying butterflies - and they are fun to wear, too! And of course by changing the colours you could make a pair of fairy wings instead.
Just a small assortment of fairy craft ideas right now, but something to keep the children busy. Fairies often live at the bottom of the garden, so we've got some nature inspired fairy creations to try out. Or your little girl can dress up as a fairy with the help of our tiara craft and some homemade fairy wings...
Even the youngest children will enjoy making this pretty fairy collage, and the template provided makes the activity a breeze. You may want to cut out the shapes in advance and leave the decorating and sticking up to the children.
Autumn is a fantastic time to take leaf rubbings and this craft is a lovely way to use them. Maybe it could be used to record a special walk or you could make a whole family of leaf fairies over the autumn period!
This fun paper plate toadstool craft is useful for autumn - or a fairy theme, perhaps! Paper plate crafts are always good for your youngest children, and this one is quick and easy.
Have a go at making your own shimmering fairy wings with this craft idea from Disney, inspired by the film Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Fairy Wings.
This gorgeous tiara craft is perfect for girls of all ages and can be adapted in many ways - see our photos below.

These gorgeous mini wands are fun to make but take a bit of patience while you wait for them to dry at the various stages. If you are throwing a fairy party, perhaps the party child could make one for each of her guests in advance and pop them in the party bags to take home?
These little toadstools - which the kids can make using craft cupboard supplies - look so realistic that you may mistake them for the real thing! Remind your child that the real toadstools must be avoided, though - they are very poisonous!
This is just the sort of house that a fairy (or some little toy people) might find useful... and this toadstool house is such a fun craft to make! We love crafts that have added play value afterwards, and this one definitely has.
Make these cute toadstool labels with the kids and use them for their own names, to label seeds you are planting in the garden (in which case you will need to laminate the toadstools carefully) or perhaps to label objects and places around the house and garden.
