This past weekend Little Lady and I enjoyed a Movie+Craft. We watched the much anticipated Secret of the Wings. Little Lady and I were so excited to see Tinkerbell and to meet the new fairy, Periwinkle!
The story is about Tink discovering a secret but not before entering the forbidden Winter Woods. We learn why pixie hollow fairies aren’t allowed to enter the Winter woods and also who created that rule.
As we watched the film I noticed Little Lady into the movie hardly ever taking her eyes off the screen. She loved to get up and dance when the music came on.
I enjoyed the movie too. Hubs mentioned as we watch that he didn’t expect the movie to be so interesting to watch. He kept peeking over while cooking dinner. I asked him after he would watch it again with the kids and he said yes.
I also enjoyed seeing a diverse group of fairies. Even though Disney movies are fairy tales it helps to have characters your children can identify with in regards to ethnicity and/or skin color.
Before we watched Secret of the wings, Little Lady got her face painted with a fairy wing. We wanted to get in full fairy mode!
While the movie got started the hubs and I prepared a craft we found off pinterest called “Fairies in a Jar” We thought this would be perfect to surprise the kids with.
Carefully cut open the uncracked glow stick. BE VERY CAUTIOUS DOING THIS GLOWSTICKS LIQUID IS VERY TOXIC. The process to release the liquid in glass is very slow. We carefully cut open the top of the glowstick as well to have it release faster. After both glowsticks are emptied add the chunky glitter A fair amount will do fine. Shake the jar fast and surprise your little ones!
