We are celebrating the Danny's Urban Fairies project this week! In the spirit of urban fairies, here is an art activity we did the first week of July with our camp for 3-6 year olds. It is quite an in depth activity and we did it over the course of 5 days. It could be a great one for a long rainy day or for splitting up over a week like we did.
Most supplies can be purchased at a Dollar Store, Michaels Craft Store or other art and craft store
Pictures for each step are below. Have fun and make sure to share pictures with us if you try it! We'd also love to hear any changes or additions you think of, leave a comment so everyone can benefit.
DAY ONE - Creating Fairy Gardens/Playground
A place for fairies to play, hide and play with their garden bug friends. We also love to find places to have tea at the Toadstool table and smell the colourful flowers.
-white or green round floral foam or Styrofoam disc
-green &/or brown moss
-Small twigs or branches, pieces of bark
-Green fabric leaves on stems
1. Pour carefully the white glue over the disc as it is lying on a flat surface
2. Gently press on the moss to cover the disc (this is the base for the garden)
3. Stick into the disc the sticks, leaves and bark
4. Wrap the ribbon around the edge of the disc and secure with straight pins to make it look finished. Look for green ribbon to add to the garden look or sparkly ribbon for fairies.
