A pretty fairy card to make for a best friend


This pretty fairy card is easy to make and is an ideal birthday card for a best friend. You could also make one without wings and add a tiara to make a princess birthday card instead. It could be made independently by 5 to 10 years olds, but can also be done as a joint project with a younger child. I made it with my 3 year old - I cut out the shapes and my daughter enjoyed finger painting the hair, dabbing on glue, shaking glitter and drawing the fairy's face.

Cut out wing shapes from the tracing paper. The tracing paper gives a nice translucent effect for the wings but you could also just use plain white or pretty coloured paper instead for your wings
Cut out a dress from the shimmery paper cutting petal shapes in the bottom of the dress

Mix some purple and white paint together to give a soft lilac colour. Use a finger with the paint to fingerpaint hair onto your fairy. Young children might want to practice a few finger prints on a spare piece of paper first

Dab glue onto the wings and shake glitter over the top. As the hair paint is still wet you will also get some nice sparkles in the hair.
