Fairy magic is real. Let’s help support the fairy population by making them warm winter houses. We’ll use all the bits of nature we can find to craft a house, plus a collaborative project – a fairy garden somewhere on the property in Indian Hills.
Bring nature elements that your kids have found. Sticks, rocks, feathers, moss, sand, shells, pine cones, acorns, leaves – that’s the type of stuff you’ll need. We’ll also need glue or clay for shaping things and probably some heavy-duty clippers/scissors too. Little homes live well in garden pots or old drawers, something portable, with a bed of dirt or pebbles that won’t shift too much on the drive home.
Games + Activities Table
We will continue to share a table of games, puzzles and/or crafting materials. Bring whatever calming materials your kids enjoy + can share.

Nature parts for crafting, glue/hot glue gun and/or clay + a pot/drawer
/shoebox for transporting finished house
A blanket/chairs/hammocks for outdoors
