Make your own Fairy Wands

Miss 4 had the deepest desire to have a ‘fairy princess’ party. So Miss 4 and I set to work planning the event. We loved looking over the amazing ‘pinterest’ parties, as I am calling them. I am not sure how you all feel but ‘pinterest’ has changed my world!!! After much planning with Miss 4, we had come up with some fun ideas for the party. This was one of them!!!

DIY Fairy Wands for all the ‘Fairy Princesses in the world’

You will need:  some cardboard (I used a box), bamboo sticks (I found these in our Bargain Shop), ribbon and spray paint.

The children and adults loved decorating them and they were able to take them home as party favours.
