A few months ago we went to Zilker Park and looked at their fairy houses exhibit.
They were gorgeous, and we loved every minute of examining them. The detail and thought put into them is amazing.
What I loved even more? The kids immediately went home and started putting together their own fairy houses.
They gathered twigs, mud, so much mud, grass, acorn caps and set to work.
While their houses don’t have the skill and finesse of the ones at Zilker, I treasure them so much more.
They have my kids personality. Their interests in them. They made a princess, trees, dogs, ladders. All sorts of great homes.
It was great to see them playing like this.
Do your kids ever take ideas and run with it? I think mine spent a good week making stuff for their fairy houses.
