My kids love making fairy houses. Almost every time we go camping, they are very soon scoping out the best place to make one.
Sometimes they use some firewood, sometimes they collect sticks, it might be up a tree, against a log or under a tree. It always fully engages their imagination, and although my eldest has voiced some doubts about Father Christmas recently she never doubts that the fairies will come to visit her fairy house over night.
A small selection if the houses they have made!
Aren’t they lovely. The one with a tea light in twinked away so beautifully as the sun set. A fellow camper gave the girls the tea light, I must remember to pop a few in the van. The fairy house theme also extends into general exploring, especially when out for a walk in a wood!
Finally, a very important tip, especially if you are on a campsite with campfires. That beautiful fairy house can look a lot like a pile of fire wood to the unpractised eye. After one devastating occasion when the fairy house was plundered as fuel we now make a little sign saying ‘This is a Fairy House’!
