A Fairy House Contest

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.  

The fairies often come to these sweet homes leave behind a lot of clues!  Sometimes they even leave notes, small gifts or just a plain mess!

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.

Our random winner will receive a FREE Beeswax Crayon Holder from Little Acorn Learning

  1. My daughter LOVED making her first fairy house. She wanted to feed the fairies everything in our pantry! I told her we should probably limit our choices to things that fit on the table she picked out for them. Ultimately, she went with crackers, craisins, and a peppermint. The fairy house is still a work in progress. She keeps finding more little things to put in it. Such a fun and continually evolving project!

  4. Hello, I do not have a blog yet so I posted a photograph of my son, Ian's fairy house on your facebook page. He had so much fun putting it together and he is hoping some fairies will come visit it tonight!

  7. I love this idea! We did fairy houses in preschool last spring and I can't wait to make them again. Ours were made of natural materials, so they didn't last long, but they were loved while they lasted! 🙂

  10. We have an annual gathering with friends at the park to make fairy homes for the little people. This spring, it is in March. We also made fairy homes this past fall for our nature table – LOVE the fairy homes!
