Do your kids love fairies and fairy gardens? Here is a fun fairy garden idea children can enjoy no matter what the weather is like outside. This fairy garden village uses small wooden bird houses to create homes for the fairies. Kids can paint the bird houses and then cover them with foam stickers and adhesive rhinestones to make fun fairy houses. The houses are placed in a box lid with moss, rocks, and fake plants to create the village. If your children are young, you can use this as an opportunity to talk about words that begin with the letter f: fairy, friend, flower, fox, food, fox, frog, etc. So cool, right?
