A Little About Tinkerbell
No discussion of Tinkerbell party supplies should start without first learning a little more about this famous sprite. Tink first showed up in 1911 as part of J. M. Barrie’s play, Peter Pan. Tink was Peter's co-conspirator and best friend -- as well as Wendy's rival for his friendship.
Though the character is over 100 years old, most youngsters first caught a glimpse of Tinkerbell during her appearances in the more recent family films including the 1953 animated Peter Pan film, the Steven Spielberg film Hook, and the animated films in recent years including Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Never Beast, The Pirate Fairy, and Walt Disney’s Tinkerbell.
As her name suggests, she's known for being a tinker, meaning she's skilled at mending, fixing, and inventing. Disney describes her as a few inches tall, with a small frame, and big fairy wings. She is usually happy and kind, but if you get her angry, look out!
Why Do Kids Find Tink So Alluring?
Kids love Tink because she's an upbeat, spunky, free spirit. She's also a problem-solver and is always happy to lend a hand to those in need. At the same time, Tink isn't perfect. She has a temper and a jealous streak something we can all identify with. And everyone wants a bit of fairy magic in their lives.

Tinkerbell Party Activities
Since all of the Tinkerbell party supplies are in place, no party is complete without fun activities. There are many great fairy inspired games and activities that are a blast during any Tinkerbell party. These are activities that both girls and boys can enjoy.
Hunt for pixie dust
To prepare for this game, hide little pouches of pixie dust (gold confetti or glitter) and hide them around the event space. Then have the guests hunt for them. Have an adult dressed as Captain Hook offer clues to where to find the treasures.
Fairy tale Theater
Fairy tale theater involves the participation of all the girls and boys at the party. Have everyone dress up as Tinkerbell, Terence, the Lost Boys and all of the fairy friends then put on a show. Make paper hats, magic wands, and wings during the party and then perform with your props during the big show.
A fun way to make fairy wings is to attach nylon to plastic hangers. Once you secure the wings, have the kids decorate them with stickers, glitter and puff paints.

- Ideal for nail art, including nail tips, gel polish, gel or acrylic nail powder.
- Give hair a little something extra and sprinkle on hairspray or gel for festival or rave accents, dance recitals, cheer...
Freeze tag with fairies and lost boys
After the show, you can play a rousing game of freeze tag. For this version, pick out one guest to be the bad fairy and one to be the good fairy. When the game starts, the rest of the guests run around the area. If the bad fairy tags a player, they have to freeze. The only way to be unfrozen is by the good fairy.
Magical mushrooms is basically a play on musical chairs. To prepare, create mushroom cutouts with cardboard and markers and place them in a circle on the floor. Have the kids skip around the play area while you play light, fairy-themed music. When it stops, they have to find a seat. Last fairy or lost boy sitting wins!
The only thing necessary to play this game is imagination. Here, one player will be the “Fairy Catcher.” That individual will change the other guests around. If they get tagged, they must go to the fairy trap. Once there, they have to say “I believe in fairies” 10 times fast. If they can do it before the Fairy Catcher returns, then they are set free!
