Fairy Door Craft

Make a fairy door (or elf door!) from craft sticks.  This magical five minute craft couldn't be simpler.  Place your fairy door outside in your garden or along your skirting board and see what magic your little one will dream up.

Our fairy door has been left outside for a while and is starting to look a bit weathered, but I think this adds to the overall look of the fairy door.  We added some glitter on the ground by our door for a bit of extra magic!
