Curious About: The Cottingley Fairies

Curious About: The Cottingley Fairies

Children Ages 6-11 | Storytime Room


In 1917, two girls from England claimed to have photographed real, live fairies dancing in a garden. Some people were convinced the photos were a prank. Others, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, thought they were genuine. The girls later admitted to faking the photos—
well, all but the last one…

Learn a little about the Cottingley fairies, sample some fey snacks, and make a fairy light jar. Participants will also explore photography tricks and use the library’s green screen to capture their own image with a fairy friend.
