kids spring fairy

This project is intended for kids ages 4+. These cute fairies are a fun and creative project to make. Using washable markers and water, kids can create fun watercolor effects on paper.
Step 1

ADULT: First, click here to download and print the circle pattern, if needed.
TIP: This project can be made with a round coffee filter or white construction paper.

Step 2

Trace and cut out a circle out of construction paper or use a coffee filter.

Step 3

Create a design on the surface with washable markers.

Step 4

Apply water to the surface which will turn the marker design into watercolor. Set aside to dry.

Step 5

Poke a chenille pipe cleaner through the center of the circle.

Step 6

Make a loop at the top to represent a face with the chenille pipe cleaner and below the paper circle, make a large circle as a stand.

Step 7

Crumble the circle shape to make a dress around the stand.

Step 8

Cut pieces of a chenille pipe cleaner to make a halo and arms. Bend the arms around the body.

Step 9

Use glue to attach the halo to the head. Let dry.
TIP: Use glitter glue to add a bit of sparkle to the fairy.
