Free Toys! Just add mess…

If I weren’t afraid of what all that glitter would have done to my camera lense I would have taken some pictures of the afternoon’s activities. We downloaded some fairy wand patterns from the Toymaker and then I gave the girls glue sticks, glitter and a cookie sheet to catch the mess.


Some of the mess got caught. Much was dumped on Elise’s feet right before she peed. That was difficult to clean up.

We’ve used the patterns from The Toymaker many times in the past. Mostly we’ve used fairy items, the fairy house, the wand, etc. But we’ve also done some of the cool action toys, like the spinners and pinwheels. I just print them out in black and white on scrap paper and let the girls color them. If the project becomes a favorite toy I cover it with packing tape and it lasts longer, otherwise they usually last about one play time, which is pretty good for free.
