What Can Our Fairy Wing Template Be Used For?

Like all of our outlines and templates, these fairy wings can be used for a range of activities such as

  • Templates to draw around to create fairy wings on pictures, cards and materials
  • Simple colouring pages
  • A stencil that is printable so you can add fairy wings to walls, clothes etc
  • Patterns for fairy wings

Do you need some inspiration? There are a few ideas below.

Sparkly Fairy Wings

Print out your wings of choice onto card stock or print on paper and stick them onto cardboard. Colour the fairy wing outline with pretty bright colours and then add sparkles using glitter, sequins, mosaic squares or tin foil. Cut out the amazing fairy wings and fold them in half.

Fancy Dress Fairy Wings

You could attach the sparkly fairy wings from above to elastic and your small person can float around the garden pretending to be a beautiful butterfly.

Butterfly Game / Role Play

Butterflies are exciting creatures. They

  • taste with their feet
  • can’t move when it’s cold
  • transform from a caterpillar in a process called metamorphosis
  • and don’t have a mouth so they can’t eat anything – they only drink nectar and muddy puddles through Proboscis (an elongated sucking mouthpart that’s tubular and flexible).

Use these fun facts to play a game…wearing the fancy dress wings from above ask your small person to run around the garden, then shout one of the following cues and they act it out.





Use feet to small a flower, grass or the air

Drink a muddy puddle

Have a drink or water (from a cup you got them)

Drink nectar

Pretend to drink a flower, using their arm as a Proboscis (what the butterfly drinks through)

The weather is Cold, Warm or Hot

Stand still, walk slowly, run around


Curl up in a ball and slowly uncurl to be a butterfly


To Conclude

We hope you love our fairy wing template. Whether you choose to use them for simple colouring, stencils, patterns or templates we know you will have lots of fun using them in a range of craft or role-play activities.fairy
