After being inspired by the amazing fairy gardens other people have created, I decided we should have a go at our own.
I cleared a corner of our overgrown vegie garden and started making a little house. Miss 3 took one look at it and declared it was too dirty for her fairies, so we found a grassy patch and started again.
We collected stones and shells for the kitchen area and flowers for the house, I made a swing from some twigs and cotton thread and then the kids set to making a whole obstacle course, complete with straw trampoline, balancing beam, slippery slide, tunnel and sandpit.
Finally we got ourselves some fairies to play with in their new home, by sticking paper wings onto some Lego Friends dolls.
