We’ve had a lovely day here playing out in our garden and while we were out there I suddenly realised the one thing I really fancied doing this year was to build a fairy garden!

After all, who doesn’t want a bit more magic in their lives and what better way to find it than with some fairy garden inspiration?!If you love magical gardens you might also want to try out my free garden coloring page, it’s beyond cute!

Making Your Own Fairy Garden

Some of my favourites that I’ve found are this gorgeous fairy cottage for your fairy to live in, this sweet little fairy and this adoreable mini mailbox. Of course if you want to make things even easier you can buy a fairy garden kit like this one!

    I’m so happy I found this! My son’s preschool has been working on nature inspired fairy gardens! This morning we had breakfast treats in the fairy garden forest and hunted for all the fairy houses they made. It was so much fun and I really want to try one at home. The child in me says this looks like a great hobby for adults, too!

    My kids are really into gardening these days and doing anything outside. This is such a great activity for kids to do that they can be in charge of and take care of by themselves.
