We Made A Fairy House!

My almost four year old is really into fairies.

Like totally mega obsessed.

She dreams about them, she sees them when we are driving through town,

she draws pictures of them, makes up stories about them obsessed.

So the natural thing to do was to build them a home!

We started with a plain rectangular wooden crate we found at the

craft store.  We also bought a variety bag of mosses.

Then we went for a walk around the neighborhood

to collect leaves, sticks, bark, etc.

I got out the hot glue gun and we started covering the crate in

moss, twigs, and bark. (And I only burned myself once!)

We used some old fabric for the floor and sheets

& cotton balls for pillows.

The furniture is made from folded & scotch taped cardboard scraps.

It was Ava’s idea to put a fire in oven

and make little paintings for the walls.

We had a great time making it together and now every night

she sets it all up for the fairies.

And every morning, the beds are mysteriously messed up

and things are moved around.

A child’s imagination is amazing and I will feed it forever. XO!
