Wearable Wings

One of our creative first graders, Emma DiLorenzo, was crafting by herself during free time when she came up with the idea of making her own life-size pair of fairy wings. She started with a piece of poster board that she folded in half. Next, she traced out the design of one of the wings onto the paper. Keeping it folded in half, she cut out her design. When she opened up the paper she was left with a gorgeous pair of symmetrical wings. All that was left to do was add some color and tape elastic cord on the back to use as straps and she had become a fairy! We turned her craft into a real class the next day and she helped turn kids into butterflies, birds, dragons and even a pokemon!
