These are the perfect guests and nature crafts for a  Woodland Party.  

  • Gather and label supplies for each of the guests
  • Lay out multitudes of markers in the middle to your makers, along with adhesives as the invitation for each guest to create their own Fairy Leaf Puppets

  • Before getting started on these puppets, we warmed up by making leaf masks which was a fun way to get into the mood and to also, start working with leaves. Through this, the kids experienced: painting and drawing on leaves; along with cutting them into new shapes and glueing. The meeting a nature and art brings such surprises and although these activities sound so familiar they brought new thoughts and imaginations.

When the kids arrived to my Woodland Event, I had already make one Leaf Fairy Puppet per child and had also decorated cupcakes with Leaf Fairy Puppets, as inspiration; but, then set the table for each child to create puppets of their own.

By putting together “Art Party Packs” for each of the kids beforehand, I wanted the day to feel as though the activity would feel as magical as unwrapping a beautiful present — although, what I wanted to unwrap was their own creativity and was so happy to see what they did. I also created extras which the kids were able to take home with themselves for continued creating.
