Our First Fairy Garden

I ran across this fairy garden contest- Fairy Garden Contest- 2012, and was inspired to try it with Lucy. Seeing as how she is obsessed with all things fairy and imaginary play, I thought it would be perfect! We set off to find a container, soil and other goodies to start it off with. Here is Lucy with the fairy garden after day 1.

A few days later we added some strawberry plants and a pinwheel. She was also determined to have some fairy dust to sprinkle on it daily. Here she is sprinkling some in the pool.

Eventually Lucy painted a fairy house to add to the garden, and together we made two fairies to live there. They are enjoying it, (although I just can't seem to find a way to keep their wings from falling off.) 

Sometimes Lucy takes the fairies on an adventure in some sort of flying carriage she's created. Here they are visiting her secret garden. 

Flying into the tree....

Can't wait to see what she comes up with next! She's having a blast, and I've enjoyed working on it with her and watching her play from afar.
