My girls are slightly obsessed with fairies.
They love Tinkerbell and have several fairy dolls.
We’ve read more of Rainbow Magic Fairies books than I can even count.
So, you can image they came running when I suggested this simple egg carton craft.
Fairy houses are tiny little things and rather magical and colorful, at least that’s how we imagined them. Of course, the very best thing about Egg Carton Fairy Houses is that they are very fun to make.
We painted our fairy houses with acrylic paint for better coverage.
My girls are older, so I don’t worry as much about mess, but if that is a concern, you can use washable craft paint instead.
Paint the fairy houses however you imagine them. We had stripes, polka dots, color blocks, and plenty of pastel colors.
Each and every house had a tiny door so the fairies could come and go.
While we were painting, we talked about all our little fairy friends that were going to move into our village.
Do you have fairy lovers at your house?
You should spend some time together crafting these egg carton fairy houses.
Not only is it a fun craft to make together, but they’re also perfect for hours of imaginative play!
