Create a Fairy Garden
Irish Folklore is full of fantastic tales of fairies. Why not bring some of that wistful magic to your garden as a fun way to get your kids interacting with nature?
For this exciting project, your children can look for a perfect location for the fairies to live, whether it’s at the base of a tree in your garden or a hollow in the ground. After that, it’s time to decorate and make a home for them.
Kids will love collecting stones for paths and twigs for fences. You could add ferns and other small plants around the trunk. Help your little growers to tie ribbons to branches, make a fairy door for a tree or wall by decorating a piece of cardboard or wood.
This is a time where both you and your family’s imaginations can run free and create a story for your garden!
