My girls can't get enough of fairies. Ever since our Downtown Chamber of Commerce put decorated fairy doors all throughout the downtown area, they love to walk around and find the doors and sprinkle magic pixie dust (a.k.a. glitter) to help guide the fairies home at night. When they can't make it downtown, they love checking out their new My Fairy Garden from Playmonster, which they set up last week.
The girls loved planting their garden and taking turns watering it daily. And, we made a point to check it each day and draw pictures of the garden and to show the growing seeds. This was a way to talk about the life cycle of a seed and proper gardening techniques as part of our homeschool. The girls even went as far as to journal about their new fairy garden and write their own story about the fairies who live there.
Savannah named her fairy Pixie Little, while Bella named her Sparkles. They left little notes next to the fairy garden for when their fairies returned home. They asked the what their likes were and if they liked their new home they had put together, and added a garden to. I surprised the girls by leaving a response to their notes, and they were in awe that their fairies took time to write a note for them.
With the holidays right around the corner...only 46 more days as of today...why not consider picking up a My Fairy Garden for that special fairy loving child in your life. They will love setting up their fairy house and decorating it with the seeds and patio furniture and other fun garden accessories, and tending to their quick germinating garden each day. And, once the garden starts growing, it will make for a magical place for their fairies to return home to every day, to enjoy from their cottage window.
