With fairy gardens in mind we gathered what we could find in the craft box: glitter, paints, brushes and glue. Our three girls and their friends went on a nature hunt around the garden and found twigs, pine cones, shells, old tiles (that we smashed up) and pebbles.I have a lot of succulents growing so we were able to pick a few to plant in the fairy gardens. Succulents need very little care, just a bit of fairy love!
The girls had so much fun filling their pots with soil and then making their own little fairy village.
We cut up a pine cone and painted the tips red and dotted with white paint. These made beautiful little toad stools!
The girls placed their gardens onto the deck, the next morning they were sure the fairies had visited because a few little stones had been moved!
