Fairy House Craft Project for Kids Post Preview: Use this cute free printable fairy house project to create your own little paper fairy house craft.
When our daughter was little, she loved making fairy houses and fairy gardens. Well, she liked to call them fairy habitats. And she loved to make them in our yard and especially when we went camping.
If your kids love making fairy houses, they will probably love the free printable craft on the site today. It’s a fun paper fairy house craft project!
To allow children to be as creative as possible with this project, the fairy house template is blank other than a door and windows. That way, they can decorate it however they would like.
Fairy House Craft Project for Kids
The fairy house craft project is good for a variety of ages. However, younger children may need assistance to assemble the craft after decorating it.
Fairy House Craft Materials Needed
- Free Printable Fairy House Template (available toward the end of this post)
- White cardstock (or regular printer paper and a cardboard tube)
- Art supplies for decorating the house, such as crayons, markers, or paint (art supply suggestions)
- Additional optional art supplies for decorating, such as stickers, foam sticker shapes, glitter, glitter glue, self-adhesive jewels, etc. The possibilities are endless!
- Double-sided tape, glue, or Mod Podge
- Battery-operated tea light, optional
1. Download the fairy house craft project template at the end of this post.
2. Print the fairy house craft pages. This includes the walls and a roof. You can print this out on white cardstock or on regular printer paper. (Note: If you use regular printer paper, you may want to use a cardboard tube to help keep the project sturdier.)
3. Before cutting or assembling your project, let kids color or paint their fairy house craft project. Have other craft supplies available for them to decorate their house, if they choose to do so.
4. Cut out the house and roof, following the cutting prompts. Roll the rectangle to form a tube and secure it with double-sided tape. (You can secure it with glue instead, but double-sided tape will work more effectively.)
5. Fold the circle to form a cone following the directions on the printable. Secure with double-sided tape. The folded piece on the inside of the cone can be secured flat with tape or cut off completely.
6. Dab a few drops of glue on the top part of the tube (the walls) and place the cone (roof) on top of it. Hold it there for a few seconds to make sure it stays in place.
7. Leave to dry completely before moving.
8, This is an optional step: use a battery-operated tea light inside the tube to make the fairy house glow. You can also poke a few holes in the windows or roof to let the light out and make a fairy house luminary!
