I am in the thick of planning yet another kid's event! It will have a spring "fairy theme", and it will take place primarily in my back yard. The children and their moms will help me transform the the grassy enclosed area into a place that will most certainly be irresistable to fairies of all types and sizes. Today I made some of the props that will be incorporated into the numerous nooks and crannies, in and among the bushes, for the fairies to use and play with. I made most everything with "found" materials and had a great time searching around the desert for just the right objects.
Here is my first attempt at making a fairy chair.
And a table to go with it:
A tiny rake and shovel made from sticks and a seashell:
And a fairy-sized wheel barrow made, again, from seashells and sticks:
I know, I know, there are no seashells in the desert. I had to buy those. But, the sticks and even the black river rocks I found in either my or Damian's yard. The previous renter at Damian's was a collector of all kinds of neat stuff... even river rocks!
