Fairy and Mermaid Crafts

Saturday, February 1, starting at 2:00 pm in the Community Room

We’ll kick off this year’s On the Same Page activities with
fairy and mermaid crafts for all skill levels.

When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.

Choose Your Level and Choose Your Craft!

For the younger or less nimble fingered, we’ll make mermaid tails from craft sticks and bright papers. Intermediate crafters can decorate a fairy house. More advanced hands may choose the luminary jar with a fairy, mermaid, or Peter Pan design.

Mermaid Tails

Your kids can’t get enough of mermaids? Come make mermaid tails! Super easy to make and you can even glue on some magnets and put on your fridge! Click Here to see how to make them. This is the easiest of the crafts we’ll be doing tonight.

Fairy Houses

Let your imagination grow and create a house for those magical fairies to rest. Use things you have at home and come enjoy making these cute fairy houses. This craft is the intermediate level activity.

Fairy / Mermaid Lanterns

Upcycle mason jars and turn them into a set of lanterns with magical silhouettes of mermaids and fairies set against the luminescent background of the sea or a luscious green forest. These charming fairy / mermaid lanterns are not only easy to make, but look adorable in a garden or when used as a night light. They’ll be sure to spark your child’s imagination or your childish imagination. Click Here to see how to make them. This is the most difficult of the three crafts.

There was another light in the room now, A thousand times brighter than the night-lights…. It was not really a light; it made this light by flshing about so quickly but when it came to rest for a second you saw it was a fairy, no longer than your hand, but still growing. It was a girl called Tinker Bell, exquisitely gowned in a skeleton leaf, cut low and square, through which her figure could be seen to the best advantage. She was slightly inclined to embonpoint…. The loveliest tinkle as of golden bells… It is the fairy language. You ordinary children can never hear it, but if you were to hear it you would know that you had heard it before.

All Things Pirate with Peter Pan!

Friday, January 17, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in the Community Room

This is the night! We’ll start giving away free copies of J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan.* This is our book for our annual February community reading series On the Same Page.

*One per household, please.

Captain Hook’s eyes were the blue of the forget-me-not, and of a profound melancholy, save when he was plunging his hook into you, at which time two red spots appeared in them and lit them up horribly. 

Loads of Fun for All Ages!

We will have treats, a craft, a few games, sneak peeks at the upcoming activities which will take place all through the month of February. Feel free to dress as a pirate (we will) to make the most of this arrrrrsome experience!

Come eat and enjoy some exotic sharks, fish and chips, mini cannonballs and ginger ale as we dress up as a pirate from making hooks to eyepatches and even get a tattoo! We will be walking the plank, playing Loot and ring toss using swords, we even have pirate coloring pages for your little ones!

All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, ‘Oh, why can’t you remain like this for ever!’ This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.
