Get into the fairy mood by accessorising with fairy wings and a tiara. A pink net tutu skirt (over leggings) and pink T-shirt will also help to complete your look. A little bit of glitter to use when casting your spells with your fairy wand is also quite effective.

Songs and music

There are two specially written fairy songs to incorporate in your party plan:

  • Here We Go Off To Fairyland
  • See The Little Fairies

Other good choices are:

  • Twinkle Twinkle
  • Happy and You Know it

There are lots of music that would be good for warm-ups, props and bubbles (all are available on iTunes):

  • Sugar Plum Fairy Remix by Grove Factory – this is a pop dance version of the classical piece
  • Fairy Dance from the Disney Peter Pan Album
  • Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy

 Activities

It is also good to incorporate some prop based action songs into the plan, for example ABC Ribbon Song, Bean Bag Song and Pom Pom Song all work well. You can say that these are all part of the fairy training school to keep with the theme.

Use the ‘Ralph Goes to Fairyland’ from Ralph’s Big Parachute Adventures and also the fairy version of the Musical Mayhem. You may have to adapt the material slightly if the party is for children 2 or under.

Hokey Cokey – Use the version without vocals and adapt this to do it fairy style, for example sing, “Put your tip toe in, your tip toe out”. Arms go in with a ballet movement and turning around should also be done on tip toes with arms raised in a ballet fifth position above the head. When you go into the middle, fly into the middle like fairies.
