Magic and Fairies on It's Playtime!

Finally, a moment to write!  My 8 month old has decided to take naps.  Yup, 8 months later she is sleeping.  Maybe I'll get more done now....ha!  Who am I kidding?  But here I am now, ready to write with plenty of It's Playtime activities to share.  

Kids love to pick flowers.  Why not put those petals to use and create some Fairy Soup?  The Happy Hooligans share this magical and simple idea.

JDaniel4's Mom created some magic in their yard by Building a Gnome Home.  Think those gnomes might like some fairy soup?

We've created Fairy Gardens before but how about a Toyrarium?  Inspiration Laboratories shared this gardening idea which promotes play and imagination alongside nature.

If you were featured this week, don't forget to grab your special "featured button."

These activities plus more can be found over on the It's Playtime Pinterest Board.  Happy Pinning! 

Now, on to this weeks play date! 
It's Playtime is a community and Thursday link-up hosted by:

How to Play :

  1. I have a growing education oriented blog and am looking for some other education oriented bloggers to swap buttons with. If you are interested, you can add my button to your side bar and I will add yours. It will stay up at least until October 31.

    Please let me know if you would like to swap.

  2. Fairy soup, you are a genius. I have been trying to figure out what to do with all the sweet flower and weed offerings that my children bring to me every time we go outside. I think fairy soup just might be the thing.
