Did you see our ‘make a fairy’ idea yesterday? Well, of course our fairies needed somewhere to live! To make a simple fairy house all you need is: card :: scissors :: pens or pencils :: sticky tape :: cake cases

Everyone started with a strip of card, the right size to fit the scale of our fairies. We drew on a door and some windows…

and used scissors to cut them out. I love the loveheart windows! {If you have younger children, or lots and lots of children joining in, you might like to prepare this stage in advance.}

Then each child drew on the design of their own fairy home. This is a wonderful way to include art, story telling and imagination in your making. Where would your fairy live? Would she have flowers round her door? A cat sat under the window? A stream or grass meadow outside?

Some children might like to take their time and draw a detailed design, some might want to draw quickly so they can make their house and start playing with it straight away.

Then we simply curled the house template round and fastened it at the back with some sticky tape. A cake case popped on the top made the roof {more sticky tape on the inside to hold it in place} and we were ready to play.

Come back tomorrow to see the fairy land where the fairies all live.
