This is a fun and satisfying paper craft using simple materials that kids can create on their own.
The finished product is a decorative angel which can be hidden in a tree or used as a display. Great for Christmas time on the mantle piece as an understated home made decoration or as a paper doll for extended play.
When it's not Christmas time, she can easily be converted into a fairy using different colours and perhaps a little glitter on the dress!
You can choose to leave the faces blank, or fill them in with as many details as you like - it's up to you and you are only limited by your own imagination.
As a note, there is a fair bit of cutting involved in her creation, which is why this one gets a medium rating and not an easy one. She is relatively easy to stick together but younger kids will get lots of practice at cutting out which is great for those fine motor skills that need to be developed for handwriting, so this is a great way of keeping those skills in over the holidays.
