Turning your mini playsilks into flying fairies is a simple project you can share with even the littlest helpers!
STEP 1: Gather your supplies. You will need a couple mini playsilks, a few cotton balls or something else round – a fallen walnut, a bouncy ball, a peach pit, a pretend orange from the play kitchen, perhaps. You will also need some sort of string and a pair of scissors to cut your string. Pretty simple materials list!
STEP 2: Place cotton balls (or other collected round object) in the center of a mini playsilk. This is a great step for the littlest of your helpers.
STEP 3: Pick up the playsilk with the cotton balls inside.
STEP 4: Tie a bow around the neck of the fairy. Be sure to have cut your string nice and long so that the ends can be used as a kite string by which you can fly your fairy. This is a great step for those learning to tie – way more fun than tying old shoes!
That’s it! Now grab those strings and run to see how high your fairy can fly!
