We were snowed in another day here at Little Acorn Playgarden and boredom was setting in with my girls. I decided to take out the sweet book Fairy Houses by Tracy Kane and challenge them to spend their afternoon making the most beautiful Fairy House they could create. I presented them with a flat surface and a cardboard box and the rest was up to them. They ran around the house gathering all of the other supplies they could think of and it was beautiful to see them working together and sharing ideas.
It amazes me how creative children can be. Our fairy house comes equipped with a food cabinet (with food in it!), bedroom, bathroom, climbing tree, flower entrance, dining room, kitchen, balance beams, sitting area and all of the seashells, gems and flowers you could imagine. The girls even went as far as to make a small jump rope for their fairy friends to use.
I wonder what they'll leave tonight....
I'd love to challenge you to create your own Fairy House with your children. Indoor or outdoor homes are more than welcome.
