What started off as a little tube slide (from a wrapping paper cardboard tube) soon developed into a full-blown fairy house and playground. Before I knew it a couple of hours had gone by and nothing had been done since breakfast! Oh well, sometimes you’ve just got to go with the flow and forget about your to-do list.
We had loads of fun making this. I used a sharp scalpel to cut out the windows and doors from the plastic cartons and acrylic paints to decorate. I found PVA glue was the best to stick the sparkly flowers onto the bottles.
I wrapped crepe paper over the top of the cartons and secured with string to create a roof for the houses. It also hides the opening of the cartons quite nicely.
The children both had lots of fun playing with this. I have a feeling it is going to get lots of bits added to it as time goes on. Lily has already said she wants a see-saw and roundabout so I can see we are going to be busy working on this for some time. They added a little tupperware pot to the bottom of the slide and filled it with water, so it now resembles a water park!
