- Corrugated cardboard
- Craft knife
- Craft or scrapbook paper, stickers, or glitter glue
- Glue stick or glue dots
- Handful of buttons
Print and cut out the template. Trace the template onto corrugated cardboard, and cut out the tracings.
Use a craft knife (adults) to cut out the circles.
Use the craft knife (again, adults only) to score the underside of the cardboard where indicated by the dotted lines on the template.
Fold the bridge floor, bending it as necessary to form an arch.
Glue the end of the floor in place. Then fold up the sides and glue them to the sides of the floor.
Now your child can decorate the sides of the bridge with coloured paper, stickers, or glitter glue.
Cut out ten or so cardboard floor boards (roughly 2½ inches by ½ inch) and have your child glue them in place, as shown.
To create a mini sign, print "Fairies Welcome" on a small cardboard rectangle. Insert a toothpick post through one of the corrugation channels in the sign. For a stand, stack a couple of buttons with the holes lined up. Apply a drop of glue to the bottom of the toothpick and insert it into the buttonholes.
Now your child can set up their fairy bridge with a trail of buttons leading up and over it.
