Fairy Gardens

Fairy House from Orlando Sentinel
Have you heard of Fairy Gardens?  You use natural materials to create a little "habitat" that a tiny fairy would love to inhabit right in a garden nook or maybe better, in a container. 
The blog, The Magic Onions details how they made this lovely fairy garden. It's got little furnishings and a pool!
Melissa, from The Inspired Room made this sweet table top version for her porch.  (You need to check out her blog it's one of my favorites.)  One idea I heard about was for the kids to check each morning and see if there was any evidence that the fairies enjoyed the garden in the night.  Of course, mom or dad made some modifications in private.  I think you don't have to be a kiddlet to enjoy a fairy garden.

  1. I absolutely LOVE these. I cannot wait to do one with Rosemary. It reminds me of a charming book I loved when I was little, and maybe you would like it, too. It's called "Seven-Year-Old Wonderbook."
