Fairy Houses Everywhere!

As some of you may already know, fairy houses are the latest landscaping craze. Making fairy houses with children is even more popular. What is a fairy house? Well, fairies live in the woods, so fairy houses are little fairy-sized abodes made from natural woodland materials (leaves, moss, sticks, etc). They work like birdhouses: you build one for a fairy with the hope that she'll find it suitable and move in. And, if you're really lucky, maybe you'll catch a glimpse of a real fairy in the wild!

Please check out these links if you have a moment before story time to get an idea of what fairy houses look like: - this site is a little hard to navigate, but the city of Ann Arbor, MI has fairy doors in many businesses and it seems to be a big attraction. If you click on the locations link, you can see some of them.

We will read the book Fairy Houses by Tracy Kane and construct our own fairy houses out of nearly all natural (but all compostable) materials. I'm sure the fairies we made last week will love their new homes.
