Here's a wonderful idea for all ages.
Woodland Creature/ Fairy Homes!
They can be as simply or as elaborate as you want. And you can find all the supplies in your home or neighbourhood.
How to Build a Fairy/Creature Home
Fairy/Creature home structure (e.g. milk carton, mason jar, cereal box, ceramic pots)
Found decorations (any natural materials that are found on the ground. Like sticks, moss, leaves, stones)
glue, scissors, paint and markers
Show your child some photos of fairy homes and discuss building a fairy home for the woodland creatures that live in your neighbourhood.
Bring out the materials you have available and allow your child to create their own fairy home.
Ask questions like: “Where will the doors and windows be?” or “What kind of activities does your creature like to do inside its home?” "What does your fairy/creature need?"
Once the home is complete, find a nice spot in the garden or neighbourhood where it can bring joy, not only to fairies, but those passing by.
“What we have loved, others will love, and we will teach them how.” - Wordsworth
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
