School holiday activities: create a fairy garden


Looking for school holiday activities for the kids? This fairy garden DIY project is sure to help whittle away the long hot kiwi summer weeks!

Fairy gardens (or “micro landscape” if you prefer) can be created anywhere. Convert an old wheelbarrow, crate, spare tire, old boot, portion of your garden… The options are as limitless as your imagination!

Diy project for kids

Tree stumps are great for helping to build layers and shape terrain.

Collecting mosses, sticks and stones to help shape your landscape is an adventure in itself.  And a wad of moss hot-glued to a twig makes a great little tree!

But how can you then make this micro-landscape look like its really inhabited by the wee folk? Toadstools and tiny homes do the trick!

We have a variety of miniature houses, toadstools, fairies, fences, signposts, bridges, stairs, terrain supplies such as pebbles or blue gravel (for water effect) … even succulent plants. All available in our online store.
