Fairy Wand Kids Craft

Today we're going on a magical adventure. An adventure where we shrink down as tiny as a blade of grass, visit a fairy garden, slip through the tiny door, and learn how to make our very own fairy wand.

If you have a fairy costume (especially pretend wings), now is the time to put it on!

Do your children love the magical world of fairies? Enter their world of pretend play and make this fairy wand kids craft together! You can customize the colors to make it truly one-of-a-kind for your child. This could also be a fun play date activity!

My kids love pretend play. Through observation, it's quite clear that they frequently require a wand of some sort. If not a wand, then a lightsaber or a sword. When they are pretending to be superheros, they tend to find an excuse to grab a stick to wave around. Even a princess needs a wand! (Especially a fairy princess.)

This activity is great for encouraging pretend play. This kids craft would work as a play date, birthday, or sleepover activity too.

How to make a wand kids craft project.

Squeeze glue all over the dowel. Don't have a dowel? A sturdy stick from your yard works too!

Starting at one end of the dowel, begin tightly wrapping the yarn around. Continue to wrap the yarn as tight as you can until you reach the other end. You can use one continuous piece of yarn or you may cut different colors. When one piece ends, just start wrapping the new one where the other one left off.

Take the ribbon and cut six 10 inch pieces. Gather the ribbon pieces (on top of each other) and tie them together in the middle.

Use scissors to make ribbon curls. (This may need to be done by an adult to ensure scissor safety.)

Completed princess fairy wand craft.

Tie the curled ribbon bunch on the end of the dowel. Reinforce with a dab of glue around the knot and allow to dry.

For extra fun, you can have your kids say “abracadabra” or a silly nonsense word to complete their wand. You may also consider sprinkling a bit of pixie dust (glitter) over it.

Are you ready to go on your own magical adventure? We hope you enjoy making your very own fairy wand. Kids craft days can be full of magic!
