Your wings are identical. That is why they sparkle. – Dewey (The Keeper)
I never liked Tinkerbell. In Peter Pan she is so selfish and rude. But, I love these new Tinkerbell movies. They have helped change her image. My girls especially love Disney’s Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings. Princess pretends to be Tinkerbell and Goofy likes to be Periwinkle.
Tinkerbell’s wings are identical to her sister Periwinkle’s. We learned a little about symmetry with this fun art activity.
Fairy Wing Art
- Paint & paintbrushes
- A cup filled with water
- A pencil
- A paper towel
- Paint shirts/aprons
- A tablecloth/plastic bag
How to Play
- Lay out your tablecloth or plastic bag to protect your table.
- Have each child put their paint shirts on.
- Put down a paper towel, a cup full of water, the paints, and the paintbrushes.
- Fold the cardstock in half.
- Draw an outline of wings.
- Cut out the wings.
- Let the kids paint the wings.
- Paint on one half of the wings and fold. (Watch the blue spot on the top of the wings above).
- Open the wings and you will have identical marks on each side. (Now there are two blue spots.)
If your kids are little artists like mine they will love this activity. They painted for a full hour.
Proud Princess. Don’t the wings look so beautiful?!
You could use glitter glue, glow-in-the-dark, or neon paint if you wanted the wings to sparkle like in the movie. The kids could paint together on a single set of wings, fold those in half, and then place another set of wings over the top to get two sets of identical wings.
*This activity could be used with the other Tinkerbell movies. The fairies paint butterfly wings in Disney’s Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue.
