Embrace your child’s wonder of the magical world of fairies by building the perfect size landscape for their imaginary friends.
This bridge is made using found items from the recycling bin. You might need to help the kiddos with some of the cutting and gluing. But children will have a blast decorating the bridge, adding a watercolor river that flows underneath, and collecting rocks and other items to bring their fairy bridge to life.
This little bridge makes a fun, free addition to your fairy garden.
What you will need:
- Corrugated cardboard
- Craft knife
- Eco-friendly paints (make them yourself or buy them)
- Glue gun
Make your fairy bridge:
- Cut the top and bottom off of a small box.
- Use a pencil to draw the curve of a bridge on 2 of the opposite sides of the box.
- Use the craft knife to cut the top section above the curve off of both of those sides.
- Then, cut the other two sides of the box completely off.
- Cut the leftover pieces of cardboard into the slates for the bridge’s floor.
- Then, glue the slates across the bridge overlapping them as you go.
- Use the craft knife to cut a circular shape under the bottom of the bridge on both sides.
- Now your child can use eco-friendly paints, markers or crayons to decorate the bridge.
