Time: 10 mins
Age: Toddlers to Little kids
Difficulty: Easy peasy
You will need:
- Paper cups
- Felt pens
- Card – ideally coloured or patterned card
Step 1: Draw on the door and windows
Take a paper cup.
Use a black pen to draw the outlines of the door and windows.
Step 2: Add more detail and colour
Take some time to add more detail to your original outlines and to add colour.
You can make your fairy houses as decorative as you like.
Step 3: Cut out circles of card to make the roof
Place a small side plate on your coloured or patterned card and draw round it to make a circle.
Cut out the circle and also cut a line to the centre.
Step 4: Secure the roof
Roll the two sides of your card circle inwards to make a cone.
Once it’s the right size to fit on your paper cup glue, staple or tape the edges in place.
Glue the roof onto the paper cup.
You can make them light up in the dark by placing a battery operated tee-light underneath the cups!
You can make another fairy house and build up to a little fairy village!
