A few natural materials collected from nature and some common craft materials and you can make these adorable stick fairies. It it will be cherished by your little ones.
What I love about these stick fairies though it that you can make all different types. Add different leaves, head pieces, petal tutus and you have a whole new fairy to play with. You could try making seasonal fairies too!
Granted, these stick fairies won’t last forever — about the same length that’s produced with the new toy — the best part about that is the stick fairies can happy biodegrade in your backyard. Where as those ‘ other’ toys end up laying around your house for years until you finally do a spring clean and throw them in landfill.
I love toys made from nature!
