We made our own magic wands using materials from around the house and it was very satisfying.
I drew star outlines, using cookie cutters as the template, on plain cardboard (it was the backing from a notebook).
The kids painted the card with watercolour, then when it was dry they added some oil pastel scribbles.
Sprinkling confetti is like hitting a saucepan with a spoon: parents loathe it and kids adore it.
The stars are a bit wonky, but if we wanted perfect we might have chosen plastic ones from the shop.
Finally: some spotty washi tape, reinforced by a spot of glue, to hold the star to the sticks that we had we collected at the park.
Sim Sala Bim!
