I loved making these peg people angels / fairies out of scrap and felt. I also loved watching the children play with them.
They are very simple to make! Cut out a dress shape in felt or scrap fabric. Tie on using wool or ribbon crossing over the chest and knot at the back, where you can knot some scrap organza or ribbon as wings. The idea is to use no glue. Finally draw on your face and hair.
Next I made a fairy garden play box for them, using sand as the main medium.
They are super little sensory toys and with all the places to peg them in the box, they are a great fine motor skill activity too!
