Make a fairy garden

Following on from the success of our Dinosaur Garden, this weekend we’ve been working on a Fairy Garden. The film below shows how we made it – now we’re eagerly waiting for the seeds to start growing so the flower fairies can really feel at home.

The music on the film is kindly provided by Anne van Schothorst and is from a piece called A Bird Came Flying.

Happily shared with Today’s Creative Blog and WeareTHATfamily’s Works for me Wednesday

    Hi, I’m a fellow MADs nominee, thanks for the mention below. We made your dinosaur habitat the other day in a bucket. It’s still going strong, something gets added every day. It’s a great idea!

    I thought I already commented on this – must have been on BMB or maybe I just “thought it” and forgot. Naughty me! Love this project – nice way to “present is as well” – def different!!! Bet your girls had lots of fun. May have to make a snail garden for Red Ted, he currently LOVES snails… 😉

    Thank you!

      Thanks Maggy. A snail garden would be fun too – you could make a spiral path to match their shells?

    Fairy gardens are just the best. I have written posts on setting up a fairy theme within an Early Childhood setting. Glitter or stars work a charm :)
