Dancing Sugar Plum Fairies
Make your own tiny dancing sugar plum fairies for Christmas and watch them dance all by themselves!
What You'll Need:
Colored tissue paper
Cut out tiny sugar plum fairy shapes from tissue paper -- use your imagination about how you think they look! Charge a comb with static electricity by running it through your hair or rubbing it against your clothing for a few minutes.
Lay the sugar plum fairies on a table. When the comb is held near the fairies, they will wiggle and move around. Do you know the tune to the "Nutcracker Suite"? Hum it for your fairies while they dance!
If you're tired from all of the dancing, the next project will help prepare you for a little R&R. On the next page, learn how to make sugar plum fairy pillowcases.
