Collecting Fairy Home Materials

Last week when we went into the forest to look for fairies we also collected
                              materials to use indoors.
The children really enjoy being in the woods traipsing through the branches.

Searching for fairies and their homes.  We found two doors on the trunk of trees.

         Our focus, though, was to collect materials to take back in to school.
Ask a child to pick up a stick and they will give you as much as they can carry.
I took a few of the thicker sticks home and my husband made us this teepee.
The gnomes were the first to move in and set up a tea party for the fairies.

All this week the families have been busy building their own fairy homes.  I’ll share pictures soon.
