If you’ve visited Maine in the last few summers you may have heard of the Maine Fairy House Festival held at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay Harbor. I personally was never able to attend but it was quite the tradition; fairy houses have always held a special place in the hearts of kids, especially ones that grew up near forests. I don’t recall making one as a child, but as both Bubbles and I are big Tink fans, I thought it would be something fun to introduce.
Building a DIY fairy house is not only a fun way to create a little magic in your child’s life – it’s also a free summer activity! In the outdoors with fresh air! So the next time you have a sunny day and the kids are saying they’re already bored, send them outside to make one.
