10 Fantastic Fairy Crafts for Kids
This Fairy Day, bring magic into your life and home by making these fantastic fairy crafts for kids! Perfect to play with or to gift your friends!
When I was a kid, one of my favorite book series was the one with the Faraway Tree. Firstly, the idea of different lands appearing at the top of the tree was too exciting. Secondly, what fun characters lived in the tree!
While all the characters had their good and bad points, there was one who was almost perfect – Silky the fairy – and that gave me the impression that all fairies were like that. Of course, now I know that’s not the case, and that even leprechauns are fairies!
However, that doesn’t stop us from celebrating Fairy Day on the 24th of June, and we’re going ahead by making some beautiful fairy crafts for kids. These are fairies that’ll remind you of Silky – they’re almost perfect!
