Fairy Soup

Fairy soup; a perfect interactive summer activity to ignite the imagination and creativity of any lover of fairies.


Fairy soup is an unstructured, no rules activity that gives kids the freedom to create unique concoctions and push the limits of their imagination...and, in the process, entice fairies to come and visit your garden.

 

Ingredients include anything that might attract a fairy.


We decided our fairies would be tempted by glitter, food coloring, sequence, beads, flower petals, glass gems and water.


I think the only thing truly not necessary, when making fairy soup...the kitchen sink.  Everything else is up for grabs.


Making fairy soup is even better when friends are involved...


And, better still while wearing fairy wings.


 The fairy soups we made took almost two hours to perfect.  *Moms, that is two hours of pure bliss for you...no, 'mom, can you get me this', 'mom, can we do something else', 'mom, I'm bored'.  Basically, fairy soup is my new favorite recipe!


When the girls' fairy soup was perfectly created, it was then doled out in bowls and containers and placed around our garden. 

The girls patiently waited, while munching on Goldfish crackers and then magically...this happened. 


I think our recipe was a success.

Happy Houligan's inspired this water sensory play activity.

    1. Thanks Amy. Sometimes, though, you can have a good idea and the kids could care less...this, though, they LOVED. I might have to do another fairy soup day before school starts.

  10. I LOVE this idea (of course I do... anything fairy is a-okay in my books) - my girls would get such a kick out of this. I can't wait until we're settled and have a backyard to pick our ingredients. :)

  12. Great idea Amy! This one would be great for all my kiddos, the boys could brew up potions like mad scientists! My daughter would love this as she is always trying to make perfume out of flower petals.

    Thanks for the inspiration xx
