It's Playtime: Fairy Fun

Fairies are a fantastic way to introduce your child to gardening.  In San Diego, several local gardens hold annual Fairy Festivals to celebrate flowers and planting season.  We attend one (that's FREE!) every year that encourages young children to enter small fairy gardens into a contest which attendees can vote upon.  But fairy gardens at home are easy too.  A little imagination and some outdoor time, and your little one can create their own fairy home.  Check out some of these ideas for fairy fun shared last week on It's Playtime. 

Paint Cut Paste shared their Fairy Herb Garden and also how to create Fairy Houses with Natural Materials.  

Visiting a fairy festival this year?  Why not pack some Fairy Wand Fruit Kebabs (created by Here Come the Girls) to take on your picnic?  Also a great snack after an exciting day of creating fairy gardens . 

 My Magical Menagerie used and old basket to create their New Fairy Garden.  

Fairies love flowers so why not attract them with Flower Petal Sun Catchers like those created by For the Children.
