Fairies are mythical beings who are filled with magic. They are a popular part of European folklore. Fairies represent good and are ethical beings. In todays Pritt project, we are going to make our own flying fairy.
Cut out all the images from the documents that have been printed out. If you have chosen to print out the black and white version, you should color in all the parts.
Fold image 1 in half, so that the dress pattern is showing.
Fold the corners of image 1 on the two sides, as seen in the picture.
Use your handy Pritt stick to paste the corners down.
Now stick your skewing stick through the apex of the skirt, as seen in the picture.
Place a generous amount of Pritt glue to the full surface of image 3, then stick image 3 to the skirt as seen in the picture.
Make sure that the skirt and the skewing stick are well attached to image 3.
Glue the arms (5A & 5B) and head (6) in place on image 3, as shown in the picture.
Apply a light amount of glue to the entire surface of image 2, then lay image 2 on top of image 3 as to cover the skewing stick, arms and head.
Now place some glue on the back of the fairie’s head and apply the fairy hair (7) to her head.
Place some Pritt glue on the fairy crown (8) and glue it to her head.
Fold the fairy wings (9) in alternate directions with spacing of 1 cm between the folds. Refer to the pictures for help.
Apply glue to image 10. Then use image 10 to glue the center area of the wings together.
Now pull the wings open and fold them inwards as to create open wings. Refer to the pictures for help.
Glue the extra piece of paper (10) from the wings to the back of the fairy.
And you are done – You are ready to have some fairy fun.
We would love to see pictures of your fairy. You can ask your mum or dad to post pictures on our Facebook wall at “Pritt world”.
