Creating a magical fairy garden with your kids is a lovely way to make memories together that will last a lifetime. I still remember making them with my granny when I was a child and now I love to make them with my own children during the summer.
My sons’ in particular feel a strong connection to fairies and are forever leaving their own “Tooth Fairies” little notes filled with questions along with their milk teeth. Their faces are a picture when they read their replies the next morning and they treasure them as much as the shiny coin she leaves them (well almost).
I toy between feeling sad that I am playing this game with them and feeling happy that they still live in a world of make believe. They will grow up all too soon and experience the harsh realities of life, so who am I to deny this innocent little pleasure. I am having to get more creative each time though!
They have both made their very own fairy doors for their bedrooms now (with no help or prompting from me) and they both love to create mini fairy gardens outside in the garden with me. There little sister hasn’t lost any teeth yet, so fairies don’t have quite the same appeal to her yet, but she does enjoy making mini gardens with us.
