A Baby Fairy Nursery

Welcome a fairy into your garden
Reconnect your children with nature.
Get them outdoors enjoying the natural world.
It is a good way to encourage them to appreciate and
Respect Mother Earth and our environment.

~ Our Baby Fairy Nursery ~


Crafting a fairy house is easy, just look to Mother Nature for your supplies. We created this Fairy Nursery out of all natural elements, bark, moss, grasses, twigs, stones, feathers, nuts, dried flowers, etc......
We took a journey into the woods and found all the materials we needed.
It was a fun afternoon in itself!


We started with sticks and turned them into a tree.
Tiny gourds strung from the tree swaying gently in the breeze.
These gourds held our new born fairy babies, wrapped in leaves.


A nurse fairy sat in the tree to watch over and take care of the baby fairies.



She consisted of a hickory nut head with hair made from the blossoms of an oak tree and an acorn top hat.
Her dress of dried flower petals and wings of a dried lily pod.
She sits in the tree rocking a baby fairy.


On the forest floor sits a tiny house made of sticks, leaves and moss.
A feather bed inside to change the little ones
and a comfy mushroom chair to sit in.


Moss coveres the ground floor, with a path of pebbles that lead you through the garden to a cozy camfire, to sit a spell, tell stories,
rock the babies and sing to them.
(Complete with marshmallows on a stick to munch upon)
 
Introduce your children
to the wonderful, rewarding and magical art of a fairy garden.
Get them outdoors and enjoying nature.
Help them create their own special space to experiment with plants and garden art. Where they can sit and play, plant flowers, read stores, decorate with their own garden art and let their inagination run wild.
Keeping them busy every year tending and adding to it.
Bringing them hours of enjoyment, accomplishment and
Respect for Mother Earth ~

"When the first baby laughed for the first time,
the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about,
and that was the beginning of fairies"
