Fairy crafts foster the imagination for your young ones and provide a fun opportunity for you as a parent to work with your child to create something magical. Fairy crafts are incredibly diverse and can be adapted to be appropriate for any age group. Below you will find a few examples of fairy crafts that you can make. Some fairy crafts (such as tooth fairy crafts) are just as appropriate for little boys as they are for little girls so no one should be left out. Also, do not be restricted to the house; there are many opportunities for fairy play outdoors as well. You can use the ideas that you will read about here, or feel free to take some of the ideas that you like and create something uniquely you.
Tooth Fairy Vial
Boys and girls love receiving visits from the tooth fairy. Why not enhance their experience by making a craft for the special occasion. A tooth fairy vial is a nice way for the tooth fairy to keep all of her collected teeth in an organized manner. Kids will have fun making the tooth fairy something that will help to make her job just a little easier.
You will need a small vile (you can also use a spice jar, empty baby food jar, etc.), some paper, tape and yarn or ribbon. Follow the instructions below to make your tooth fairy gift.
1. Trim the paper into a strip about 1/2 inch shorter than the vial or container that you are using. The paper should be wide enough to include all of the important information that will be listed on it. 6 inches wide is a good recommendation.
2. Write or type out specific information about the tooth that was lost (time, place, child’s age, details like how the tooth was knocked out, etc).
3. Tape the tooth on the paper (or you can put it in a small baggie and tape that to the paper). Roll the paper into a scroll so that it fits inside the vial, and tie with the thread or yarn. Drop the scroll into the vial and secure the top.
4. Write your child’s name on a label that you can stick on to the vial or use a picture a tooth or of the tooth fairy to label the container.
