Fairy Land

Once upon a time - A little fairy dreamt up the most enchanting child birthday party idea ever seen. And here is her very own child birthday 'fairybration'.

Alternate Names:Tinkbell's Garden, Fairy Haven,


  • Take a rectangular piece of paper (so that the long side is horizontal to you) and fold in both of the sides to the middle so it looks like a gate.
  • Cut out magical wands (a long rectangle for the stick and a star for the top of the wand). Using a silver gel pen, or any other nice pen, you can write a poem on the rectangular paper before rolling it up.
  • Wording for invitations

    • "Fairies, fairies, did you hear? (Your child name)'s birthday is this year! You'll dance, you'll eat, and you'll have sweet fun - you'll be a fairy before it's all done."
    • "Wear you fairy best, a tutu will do. You wings and accessories await you. The party is at (time), please say you'll fly by. (Birthday child's name) god-mother awaits your reply!"
    • "Far, far away, in a magical place, sits a small little fairy, with her soft smiling face. She waits for her friends, in the warm summer sun; won't you come on (date of the party) to join the fun? With fun foods to eat, and fun games to play, your arrival at (time of the party) will make (kid's name's) day. She anxiously waits, as each day passes by, while her fairy parents await your reply" (and then write RSVP and your phone #).
    • "Take a peek through the garden gate". Then on the inside put lots of fairy and butterfly stickers peeking out through holes you've cut in the gate itself. Inside you can write: "The garden fairies have gathered to celebrate a special day for a great little fairy" (and add her name and age). "Please come join the fairybration".

You can also write that all the fairies come dressed in their fairy best - and boys in their pixie best. Don't forget to add a lot of fairy dust (glitter and confetti), and possibly fairy stickers to the invitation (you can also enclose fairy tattoos).

Side Note - For thank you notes, you can write something witty like "Thank you Fairy Much".


  • The dominant colors of your Fairy birthday party should be lavender, pink, purple, blue cream and silver (and more pastel-like colors).
  • Hang Metallic foil curtains in the doorway so the kids will feel like they are entering a magical place.
  • A fun child birthday party idea is to throw some sparkle glitter on the guests as they arrive or set up a cool bubble machine in the entrance to shower the guests and get them into the fairy mood as the arrive.
  • Take flowers (even real ones) and tie their stems to clear fishing line and hang them from the ceiling. For a different effect hang them from colored yarn.
  • Place flowers in vases all around the house and disperse them on tables and shelves.
  • If you have a garden or a nearby park, it can serve as a great setting for the kids to eat and play.
  • If the party is at night, another idea is to line the pathway to your house with different colored lunch bags half filled with sand and with a candle inside. The bags glow magnificently once you light the candles (you can also punch holes in the top part of the bag to create twinkling stars).
  • Add the magical touch by decorating the party area with white Christmas lights.
  • Scatter confetti in a path leading to the house and on the floor in the party area, telling the kids that those are "fairy footprints."
  • To make an outdoor fairy garden, cut out cardboard toadstools, giant paper flowers and beanstalks. Attach all cutouts to garden stakes to create the fairyland scene. Make a gumdrop tree by hanging small bags of gumdrops on tree branches using ornament hooks.

Dress up your little girl as a fairy with ballet clothes and a garland.
If you have some spare time on your hands, you can make your own fairy wings. It's lots of fun, let alone rewarding.

If you've made or purchased fairy wings, have each guest earn them as they arrive by going outside and looking for a little fairy hidden in the yard. Once a guest finds a fairy, they can go choose wings and put them on. This can also be used as an ice-breaker game.

Ice-Breaker Activities

  • Transformation Stations -make your guests feel like dainty little fairies with a sparkly makeover.

    • fingernail station - you can offer a couple of different non-toxic nail polish in bright sparkling colors (use a blow dryer to dry them quickly or ask each little fairy to flick her fingers in the air for about sixty seconds).
    • lipgloss station - you'll need your choice of lip gloss that sparkles
    • Glitter station - glitter blush or eye shadow, and tiny prismatic stickers to jazz up the activity.

  • Beaded Wand Activity - Have the kids make wands out of wooden steak skewers. Prepare star shapes out of any thick paper. Have the kids glue on a star to the tip of the wooden skewer, and then glue another one, to the back of the first star, so that the wooden skewer isn't seen (so for each wand, 2 stars are needed). Once the glue is dry, either spray paint the whole thing silver, having the kids decorate it, or let them color their stars with markers, stickers, etc. And, of course, have them sprinkle different color fairy dust (glitter) over their wands to make then truly magical.
  • Beaded Fairy Ring Activity - This is a fun fairy activity in which the girls make their magic rings and can then swirl them above their heads and watch the ribbons flutter in the air.
  • Fairy Craft Area - Necklace-Making Child Birthday Party Idea or this box-of-beads kit. Or, for the sake of simplicity, have the kids make tasty edible necklaces out of licorice string, fruit loops, cheerios, and gummy lifesavers.

  • Magic Punch
  • Fairy fizz - Place a full glass of red punch in front of each guest and add some fairy dust (a few Pop Rocks candies) to each cup. The kids just love it when the candy crackles, pops, and splits when it comes into contact with the liquid.
  • Sparkling apple cider
  • Fairy punch (raspberry sherbet and Sprite)
  • Pink lemonade
  • Strawberry tea (If you want to add more of that strawberry taste to your strawberry tea, do the following: make half a pot of strawberry tea with three bags, let it steep a bit and then add a few drops of strawberry extract and three or four drops of red coloring. Then add milk and sugar to taste


  • Fairy Wand Cookies - Simply use your favorite sugar cookie recipe or get the Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookies. Roll out the dough, and cut it out using a star-shaped cookie cutter (then bake according to instructions). As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, and are still warm and soft to the touch, carefully push a plastic straw or wooden skewer (with the tip cut off) between any two points of the star (this makes the handle for your magic fairy wand). Then frost the cookies with glossy icing. You can also add a few drops of food coloring in the dough for different colored wands (these wand cookies are a bit fragile, but they're very tasty and fun treats to eat!
  • Fairy Bread - Lightly butter white bread, spread with lots of sprinkles, and cut into triangles.
  • Fairy Burgers - Cut the hamburgers into star shapes with star cookie cutters.
  • Hotdog wands
  • Cream cheese and strawberry jam sandwiches (you can cut these with star, heart, diamond etc. shaped cookie cutters)

  • Fruits out of wine glasses (or in a watermelon basket where you can cut the watermelon with heart, star, diamond etc. shaped cookie cutters)
  • Magic wands (pretzel rods dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with star-shaped decorations or just plain sprinkles)
  • Fresh-fruit wands (take wooden steak skewers and put grapes, strawberries, and other cut fruit on them and at the top put a melon cut into the shape of a star using a star-shaped cookie cutter).
  • Chocolate-covered Fruit
  • Heart-shaped or star-shaped rice crispy treat wands (you can add a stick in them to look like wands; also you can dip in chocolate and add sprinkles for more of the wand effect)
  • Magic gems (A bowl of pastel colored jelly beans, skittles, etc.)
  • Cotton candy wands
  • Marshmallow wands
  • Fairy dust (pixie sticks)
  • Dainty Sandwiches - Prepare your child's favorite sandwiches. Cut them into various shapes (such as stars, hearts, and flowers) using cookie cutters. Have the guests choose their preferred sandwich shapes.

  • Star Jell-O Jigglers - Prepare Jell-O according to package directions and cut with star-shaped cookie cutter.

Extra Note - sprinkle fairy dust onto the food, use small containes and a puffy paint write on them "sweet fairy dust" for sugar, "sea fairy dust" for salt, "kicking fairy dust" for pepper, "green fairy dust" for parsley, etc.

  • Lost Magical Stones - have the children find stones/gems around the area that were hidden by busy little gnomes
  • Fairy Dress Up Relay - This kid game is a relay race in which the kids dress up as fairies and race to the finish line. You can even separate the two groups into Fairies against Pixies. Arrange for each group to have funny, colorful and oversized fairy attire - including wings of course. Determine a starting line and a turn-back line about 15 feet apart. Place each set of clothes in mound at the starting line. Blow the whistle or say go! The first players in each line dress up us fairies and fly (flap their wings) to a designated point, turn back and return to the starting line and take off the fairy clothes. The next player in line does the same. The first team to finish wins. The more clothes you add, the funnier it gets!
  • Fairy Tag - This is a kid game of tag in which everyone flies around with their fairy wings and the fairy who's IT can only use her wand to tag the others.
  • Fairy Hunt - Print a map with clues and a poem to guide the kids to each location. At each location they'll find a garden or fairy-related prize they can keep. In the backyard you can have different fairies hidden. And every clue they find leads them to another clue.
  • Panning for Gems and Gold - This kid game has a royal history. During the late 19th century each woman guest was invited to hold a handful of sand and let it sift through her fingers to find a precious gem left in her palm that was hers to take home. You can set up a similar game by getting a shoe box or larger box filled with clean sand or white cornmeal and bury inside a few small plastic rhinestones and golden nuggets. Have the boys sift for gold while the girls sift for gems.
  • Bobbing for Apples - For this classic kid game, hang cored apples at the kids height (you can do this from a piece of long wood, which can be held up securely with a ladder and the side of the house), then the kids have to bite the apple with their hands behind their back.
  • Bibble's on the Move - Play this game just as you would "Hot Potato".
    Position the girls into a circle. Pass a toy "bibble" from player to player around the circle while music is playing. When the music stops the player holding Bibble will sit in the center for one round, or she can be in charge of
    the music for one round.
  • Stick the Butterfly on the Flower - Played just like "Pin the Tail on the Donkey".Draw a picture of a flower with on poster board. Cut several butterflies
    from card stock paper. On the day of the party, add double stick tape
    to one side of the butterflies and write the girl's names on the other.
    Use a fun fabric sash for the blindfold.
  • Freeze Tag - Play this game just like "Freeze Tag". Give each player a small pouch of glitter before playing. One player will be "it". When you say "GO" the girls run. If she tags a player, that player is frozen until another player sprinkles fairy dust on her. Make sure that each player has a turn to be "it" and that each round does not take too long.
  • Flower Pot Toss - Set up large flower pots around the area with a single flower stuck in Styrofoam in each pot. Give the players rings to throw and to ring the flowers

Give the first person on each team two lily pads. Lily pads are the only thing they can step on as they travel from the front of the line, around a chair and back to the line again. On the command "Go", children place one lily pad on the ground and step on it. Then they place the other lily pad on the ground in front and step on it. They then pick up the first lily pad and place it on the ground in front of the other. When they cross the moat they hand the two lily pads to the next person in line. The team to make it all the way across the moat first wins.
  • Fairy, Fairy, Troll - Play this fairy birthday party version of Duck, Duck, Goose. Children sit in a circle, and one person taps others while saying "Fairy."
    When she says "Troll" she must run around the circle trying to occupy the spot where the Troll was sitting before being tagged by the Troll. Have the players flutter their arms as if they are flying.
  • Floating Balloon Game - Give inflated balloons to all your fairy party guests. The object of the game is to hit the balloons up into the air, and keep them afloat for the longest time possible.
  • Magic Present - Put small prizes in little-sized boxes before the fairy birthday party. The total number of "prize" boxes should equal the number of your guests.Have the kids sit in a circle, and get them to pass a large box (filled with smaller "prize" boxes) around the circle, while music is playing. When the music stops, the child holding a large box have to open it and choose one of the "prize" boxes. She then leaves the game, and the play continues until everyone has a prize.
  • Fantastic Fairy Tale - Here is a perfect fairy birthday party activity to unwind. To start, ask one of your guests to begin telling traditional fairy tale. Move around the circle and get each guest to add her installment of the story. It's a great opportunity for the kids to use their imagination to come up with their own fairy tale.

And all that's left is to wish you a FAIRY fun party!
