Activities are not my favorite part of party planning, but once kids hit a certain age it's kind of a necessity. So we put together a few simple fairy inspired activities that were great for a group of creative 4 year olds...
Now I suppose it's time for me to start planning Caitlin's 5th birthday... it's going to be here before we know it!
But wait, there's more... have you seen the rest of this party yet? Cakes \\ Invites + DiYs
coffee filters (round, not cone shaped)
watercolor paints + brushes
google eye stickers
1. Open the coffee filter so it lies flat on the table and fold in half. Dip your brush in watercolors and then water. Use the same color patterns on the left and right sides of your filter. These will be come the butterfly wings.
2. When you're done painting, pinch the center of the filter and bring the top and bottom sections down to meet in the middle. Clasp with a clothespin. This will be your butterfly body.
3. Fluff out the wings and decorate the body with markers, glitter pens etc. Add google eyes if desired.
4. Cut a pipe cleaner in 2 and fold half in the middle. Stick in the top of your clothespin for your butterfly antennae.
