Fairy House Festival

This past weekend we were able to participate in the annual Fairy House festival for the first time. It was a beautiful afternoon and lots of fairies were out! To be honest, I was a bit surprised that there weren't more boys at the boys have always loved fairies and making fairy houses! The festival is held at one of our nature preserves. They set aside a trail in which you can build your fairy house (or gnome home) as well as admire everyone else's hard work. I believe the fairy's and gnomes were quite pleased with all the new houses.

Our fairy home-two story with a swing to help pass the time

moss was used to create a soft carpet for the fairies to rest upon

There were a lot of really great houses built. Here are a sampling of some of our favorites!

We all had a wonderful time creating our special home for the fairies. We look forward to going back and visiting as well as participating again next year.
