Creating a “fairy garden” is all the rage now, and why not, those enchanting and delightful whimsical creatures have been capturing people’s imaginations for centuries. A fairy garden is the creation of a tiny, fairy sized world, where the fanciful possibilities are only limited by your own imagination. Most garden centers now have display areas devoted primarily to “everything fairy” where you can find fairy sized plants and landscaping supplies, along with a few fairies themselves! Designing and constructing a fairy garden can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Children love to be involved in picking out the perfect accessories for a fairy garden that are provided by nature itself, such as small stones, pinecones, twigs, leaves, and even shells. These fairy garden accessory scavenger hunts are also a perfect opportunity to for a nature lesson. Before you know it, the whole family will be involved in creating the perfect tiny habitat that any fairy worthy of their wings would love to abide in. Even big strong “he men” can’t help but become enamored with fairy gardens, and why not, it helps us connect with that “inner child” we all have clamoring to get out.
