Fairy houses

Spring flowers and buds on trees are coming and legend says with them our little fairy fiends. I know, beacuse my little girl keeps talking about them all the time. She is starting to plan her garden for the fairies. Legend says that if she builds a fairy house in the spring that fairies will come and live in it.

This is a fun activity for both boys and girls. Boys can make houses for gnomes or maybe a mini troll. It is the perfect project to do as a group or alone with a parent.

How to make fairy homes
All of Nature’s materials can be used to construct a fairy house. The only limits are if you don’t believe fairies are going to live there. Use twigs, branches, leaves, rocks, feathers and shells. Flowers are always a homey addition for any house.

Start with going for a walk in your neighborhood or look in your backyard and gather natural materials. Let the kids decide what to collect.

Find a perfect spot for your house, by a tree trunk is a good place. When you have found the spot start building and create your masterpiece.
