Baby Hints & Tips

{CRAFT} Make your own fairy garden

Fairy Garden | Baby Hints & Tipsby Kristin

Have a little fairy in the family, or want to get the kids more involved in the garden?  Why not create a fairy garden?

What you’ll need:
– A large pot (with a wide enough opening to create a scene)
– a ‘house’ (a small birdhouse works well
– a small bag of pebbles
– some plant tags/picks (for the fence)
– some ornaments (if you look hard enough you’ll find some goodies at your local hardware store and spotlight)
Step 1
Put the pot where you want it to live (don’t make my mistake & create a masterpiece in the garage & then have to move a huge pot that weighs a tonne)
Step 2
Fill the pot with soil
Step 3
Decorate (or let the kids go nuts)
Enjoy!  This has brought HOURS of fun for my little girl & I will quite often pop a surprise in the birdhouse as she checks it every single morning on our way out for the day.
