When my daughter was younger she was obsessed with fairies. She watched Tinkerbell, read fairy books and even made a tiny fairy bed to keep on her nightstand in case the fairies wanted to come visit her at night. I guess she was hoping they would get tired and decide to take a nap with her! This easy spring craft is a great way to use up all those empty toilet paper rolls I know you are stashing in your art closet. You can find decorative muffin papers at most craft stores and other than a bit of paint, that is all you really need. In real life, a fairy circle is a ring of mushrooms that occurs naturally in woodsy or forested areas. Mythological history says they are gateways into elfin kingdoms. According to wikipedia: A fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without a trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it.
If you have a little girl as wild as mine was about fairies, this easy spring craft should be just the right way to keep her busy!
Easy Spring Craft: A Fairy Circle!
Toilet paper tubes
paper muffin cups in assorted colors
1. Using scissors, cut your paper tubes to the desired heights.
2. Lay down some newspaper to prevent messes. Paint each tube with a variety of paint colors. Let dry and do a second coat if desired.
3. Using the hole punch, cut holes scattered around the muffin cups.
4. When the paint is dry, set up the tubes wherever you would like your fairy garden to be located
5. Place 2 different muffin cups on top of each one, staggering the holes so the bottom cup shows through a bit
You can add some fake moss from the craft store and a tiny fairy figurine for decor if you like! This is an easy spring craft for kids to do with very little supervision.
Do you believe in fairies? What sort of easy spring crafts are YOUR kids planning?
