We provided tutus and wings for the girls to dress up in. The boys had Peter Pan and Mad Hatter outfits to wear. The children played tea party in dramatic play, in their enchanted fairy garden. We made fairy houses out of styrofoam cups and bowls decorated by the kids. The children also painted egg cartons to create caterpillars.
We also made a "butterfly bush". I painted the children's feet the colors they chose and used their footprints to make butterflies.
The children loved their enchanted garden, and were sad to leave at the end of the year. It was so pretty, we hated taking it down after the school year ended.
I hope our enchanted fairy garden inspires you to bring some "magic" into your classroom this year.
