How To Easily Make Fairy Bread For A Kids Party

I don’t know about the rest of the world, but Fairy Bread is a staple for any kid’s party in Australia.

I grew up in England and I had never heard of fairy bread, let alone tasted it.  In fact, these arn’t exactly food combinations I would ever have thought of trying.

I’m not exactly sure of the fairy bread origin, but what I do know is that the kids absolutely LOVE it, and really that’s all that counts!Easy Fairy Bread


See also:

  • A party favorite that the kids adore are chocolate crackles.  For the kids that love chocolate, this is the ultimate party food!
  • Just like chocolate crackles, honey joys are also a party favorite.  Except these ones don’t include chocolate.
  • Boys and girls love tiny teddy cars.  It doesn’t matter what the theme of the party is, these are always a winner.

If you are planning to hold a kid’s party, I would SERIOUSLY recommend you give fairy bread a try.   It may not seem like the logical choice at the time, but trust me…..the kids will totally thank you for it!

What Is Fairy Bread?

The fairy bread recipe really is very simple.  It consists of white bread, spread with margarine or butter and sprinkled with 100’s and 1000’s or sprinkles!!

As far as kid’s party food goes, it doesn’t get much more simple than this!


Typically the bread is cut into squares or triangles, but as this has been done so many times before, why not be a bit creative.

Fairy bread is an easy food that can be prepared for a kid’s party. It is incredibly easy to organize, the kids love it, and it will be a hit party food. This is a total win win when it comes to catering for children’s birthday parties.

If you have a cookie cutter handy, why not use this to cut out the bread shapes.

There seem to be cookie cutters for every occasion  so you should easily be able to find a cutter that will fit into your chosen kid’s party theme.

Alternatively, why not roll them into small wheels.

This will make them look a bit different and would suit any theme.

Fairy bread is an easy food that can be prepared for a kid’s party. It is incredibly easy to organize, the kids love it, and it will be a hit party food. This is a total win win when it comes to catering for children’s birthday parties.

If you havn’t given fairy bread a try at your kids party, now may be the time to change that.  It is seriously the easiest kids party food that you will come across.  And besides, they will totally love it!!


If you love the idea of fairy bread and your looking for some other party food for the kids, then I would recommend you check out the following.  Trust me…they are all SUPER EASY!!

What are your thoughts?  Is it something you think your kids would love?  Is fairy bread normally a staple at your kids parties?

      The beauty of this Audrey is it literally takes 5minutes. Give it a try 🙂

    Could Los spread bread with Nutella or Strawberry cream cheese. Such a cute idea!

    • Catherine Holt May 21, 2013 at 9:12 am #

      Interesting idea Delphine! Fairy bread is only ever normally made with butter or margarine, but there is nothing in the rules that says you can’t experiment! Give it a go and see what it tastes like….I cant see any reason why it wouldn’t work just fine 🙂

    How do you make the fairy bread!? I would love to try this for my kiddos! 🙂

    • Catherine Holt August 4, 2013 at 4:51 pm #

      It’s incredibly easy Carly. Simply choose the style of bread you would like, spread on butter or margarine and top with sprinkles or hundred’s and thousands! That’s it!!!! The kids will love it 🙂

    Love it love it love it!!! And totally going to do this for M’s upcoming fairy party next month 🙂 Yay!! So simple I should’ve thought of it myself, lol, xx

    • Catherine Holt April 14, 2014 at 9:07 am #

      Fairy bread is pretty much a staple party food here in Australia. The kids love it!! We would love to see photos of the fairy bread in action at the party if you are happy to share!!

      Enjoy the rest of the party preparations 🙂

    I think i will use the fairy bread for my daughters frozen party. I need to think of another name. I rolled a piece like the sushi roll a minute ago. It didn’t look nearly as pretty. I will have to experiment. Thanks for the idea.

    • Catherine Holt January 3, 2015 at 9:02 pm #

      Great idea Leona! I’m not sure what you mean by the “Sushi roll” tho? Fairy bread is literally bread, butter and sprinkles. If you prepare it the night before, and then leave it in the fridge, it will stay rolled up a lot easier 🙂

      Enjoy the party!!

  6. Audrey January 22, 2015 at 4:45 am #

    These are adorable! I know many a little girl that would love these.

    found you on Tasty Tuesdays.

    • Catherine Holt January 22, 2015 at 9:21 am #

      Thanks Audrey. The kids seriously go nuts over fairy bread. Not a fan myself, but they enjoy it and that’s all that matters….lol.

    I made Fairy Bread a few years ago for my “Around the World” kid’s class when we were studying Australia. I could not believe how much the kids LOVED it! They thought it was the best thing ever! I love your ideas to roll it up as a spiral or use cookie cutters – I will be doing that next time we “visit” Australia!! Thanks for sharing!

    • Catherine Holt April 17, 2015 at 5:26 pm #

      Kids totally go nuts over it don’t they Kendra. Personally I don’t like it, but who am I to argue with a bunch of kids…lol

  8. Ashley Mullen April 21, 2015 at 11:54 am #

    What a cute idea! Thanks for linking up to last week’s Tasty Tuesday Linky! I have pinned your recipe to the Tasty Tuesday Pinterest Board. Hope you stop by and link up tomorrow!

    • Catherine Holt April 21, 2015 at 1:27 pm #

      Thanks for pinning Ashley. The kids will certainly thank you for this recipe 🙂

    What a cute idea! And so simple too. Think I should try this for my daughters upcoming 4th birthday. Fairy bread would be cute for a Tinkerbell party.

    • Catherine Holt April 28, 2015 at 11:00 am #

      Oh it would be awesomet for a Tinkerbell party Kristen. You could even pick just one colour of sprinkles to fit your theme. It’s absolutely perfect for a 4 year old. My daughter is 3 and she gobbles it up…lol

    I’ve never heard of fairy bread before, I think kids would love both making it and eating it! Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have pinned your post to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Board.

    • Catherine Holt April 28, 2015 at 10:15 am #

      I think it’s definitely an Oz thing Janine as I hadn’t heard of it before moving here either. But I can tell you that the kids absolutley love it. Not personally my cup of tea…lol…but who are we to argue with the taste buds of children! Thanks for pinning 🙂

  11. Bren May 11, 2015 at 11:25 pm #

    What a great idea Catherine! I love sharing traditions from other counties with my American kids. They will really enjoy this one.

    • Catherine Holt May 12, 2015 at 3:33 pm #

      Oh they totally will Bren. I havn’t yet met a kid that doesn’t like this…they seem to go nuts with it at parties 🙂

  12. Mari May 11, 2015 at 11:59 pm #

      If your looking for an easy kids recipe Ashley then this is certainly it. They don’t come much easier 🙂

  15. Valerie July 17, 2015 at 2:39 am #

    How fun! My daughter would love this, everything is better with sprinkles!

    • Catherine Holt July 17, 2015 at 12:54 pm #

      Kids go nuts over sprinkles don’t they Valerie. I swear my daughter would have it on everything if I let her get away with it 🙂

  16. Kandie July 30, 2016 at 6:09 am #

    Can I make this the day before the party and refrigerate?

    • Catherine Holt August 2, 2016 at 12:27 pm #

      Absolutely you can Kandice.

      If you wanted to do the rolled version it would mean it would actually stick together better than if you made it on the day. If however, you were just wanting to do normal fairy bread slices, it might be better to make it on the day of the party. It would still be fine made the day before, but would be a lot fresher on the day and the sprinkles wouldn’t loose their coloring into the butter. But…with the rolled version, color merging doesn’t matter!
