Who doesn’t love fairy tales? The whimsy, the adventure, and the magic? Fairy tales and storytelling go hand and hand with childhood and for a reason, read about the importance of story telling and fairy tales. If you are like me and are not a natural story teller, I found this post Storytelling 101: Tell Stories Your Kids Will Love to be incredibly useful. I thought it would be fun to make a fairy wand craft this week since it is National Tell a Fairy Tale Day on February 26th!
To make a fairy wand you’ll need:
- cardboard (I used an old Amazon box I had lying around)
- ribbon to make streamers
- Acrylic Paint
- Hot glue gun
- glitter (optional)
How to Make Your Fairy Wand
Let your child paint the dowel
Cut out a star from the cardboard and let your child paint, decorate, and add glitter to the star.
When it is dry, use the glue gun (adults only) to glue the star to the dowel.
Tie ribbon in a secure knot to make the streamers
Now your little fairy is ready to get to making some bippity-boppity magic! This not only was a fun craft to make but it is something you can keep for dress up!
To finish off Tell a Fairy Tale Day, we acted out a fairy tale! My daughter acted out Cinderella with the shoe and all!
It was so fun to do this fairy wand craft and see my daughter’s eyes light up. Fairy tales bring such wonder and whimsy to childhood and this is such a simple way to add to it.
