The kids and I built a fairy house this weekend. Actually, I just said "Hey, let's build a fairy house!" and then they took it from there.
What's a fairy house, you ask? (The kids asked too). Well, I read about it here and thought it was a super cute idea.
Basically it's just a little house built out of nature. I told my kids that if we built one, maybe a fairy or two would come and sleep in it that night.
They made leaf beds for 8 fairies, so really it was more like a fairy hotel than a house. Also, Owen was very concerned about whether or not the fairy house needed a potty. (Owen is a little obsessed with potties.)
Ashley also made sure there was a driveway. For fairies who drive instead of fly, I guess.
When they were all done, they were quite impressed with their creation. And it kept them busy for like an hour. That's a record, people. Fairy houses are where it's at.
We might make another one this weekend that involves sticks. The fairies are gonna love it.
