Fairy Gardens To-Go

 Every year in the spring we like to hold a Fairy Garden planting class.  In this special class adults and their wee ones are invited to work together to create a little garden inviting enough for the fairies to come and to play. 
 We suggest the small plants that will do well in this little upcycled clementine crate (which the fairies find and paint).  Perhaps creeping thyme for the fairies to nap on.   Fragrant Lavender for relaxing and calming.  Chamomile is a favorite tea of Peter Rabbit and the Fae.  Rosemary offers the perfect privacy fencing.
 We also supply stones and wood pieces and other found treasures.

 It is fun to watch the children's imagination run as they select their plants and the treasures to create paths, tables, beds, rooms and just a perfect little garden for the Fairies to find.
And of course, no fairy garden is complete without lots and lots of sparkly glitter!

Oh how fun! What a great idea for the adults to work on this with the kids! Great intro to gardening, and if there is glitter, I am happy!

I'll bet there's great joy in watching everyone make these! Love the comment about the sparkly glitter, too!
