4. Make Lanterns
Make pretty lanterns by painting jars. Use special glass paint (or household paint and a layer of varnish). You can paint black fairy silhouettes on your lanterns, too.
5. Light the Lanterns
Place tea light candles inside the jars. Ask an adult to light them in the evening. You could also add sparkly solar nightlights to light the fairy ring. They come on automatically at dusk. When it rains, cover the jars with plastic.
6. Look for Fairy Rings
Look for mushroom fairy rings in nature. You can also create your own with small flowers.
