Fairy party activities
You can buy a Squidgydoodle Fairy Party Box to save you time and reduce your party costs. A party box takes away the hassle of designing your own party activities, yet still cuts out the high cost of hiring an entertainer. Your child and their friends will go deep into the woodland, to discover a magical world of pixies and fairies. The fairies and pixies need some help with their jobs. Your child and their friends will have fairy wings to make, butterfly wings to paint, fairy and pixie houses to decorate and fairy potions to mix.
You also receive all the materials that you need to complete the arty activities and fairy and pixie themed party game ideas. If that’s not convinced you, maybe the printable invitation and thank you notelets that are included will? You could also buy a Squidgydoodle T-shirt for the party child to decorate whilst you’re setting everything up.
Fairy party games
Lily Pad Relay
Each team has to cross the ‘pond’ and return using their lily pads, without falling into the pond’ (touching the floor) Cut 4 x lily pad shapes from some green paper (2 for each team) A child has to hop onto one lily pad and pull the other one in front of them, then hop onto it. They keep going until they’ve crossed the pond, then they return to let the next fairy/pixie hop across. The first team to have all completed the journey wins.
Pin the wand on the fairy/ pixie
Each child tries to pin a wand on a fairy/pixie picture. The winner is the closest to the fairy’s/pixie’s hand.
Save the bumblebees
This is like an egg and spoon race, but with bumblebees. You could use dried beans for bumblebees. Children have to race to take their bumblebees back to their ‘hive’ (a bowl at the other side of the room) by carrying them on their spoon. If they drop their bee they have to return to the start. The first team to have got all their bees to the hive is the winning team.
Follow the fairy / pixie
This is like follow the leader. Line the children up. They then follow the fairy/pixie at the front copying their movements e.g. flying, hopping, twirling, waving an imaginary wand. You could play some music whilst they do it. You could give prizes for the best performing fairies/pixies.
Cut out and cook star, butterfly, flower, biscuits before the party, then provide icing and sprinkles for the children to decorate them with.
Fairy and pixie party decorations
- Fairy lights look great for a Fairy and Pixie Party. If you’re having it outside, drape them across trees, or put them in jars.
- Hang paper streamers, or ribbons from tree branches
- You could create paper butterflies to hang up
- To make the children feel like they’re tiny fairies and pixies in a giant world you could make some large paper flowers
- I love this giant paper mache toadstool
- You could hide fairy doors around the party venue. You can make your own fairy door with lolly sticks. Glue on a small button for a door handle. Why not get your child involved?
- Add to the magical feel of the party venue with a bubble machine.
