Fairy Barrels!

My children go to a Waldorf methods school, where fairy play is very popular amongst the younger ones. I decided to use the 1/4 wine barrels to make some fairy gardens for my girls!



So far they have really enjoyed rearranging the rocks and sticks and finding seed pods and such in the yard for the fairies ("this can be a fairy slide!"). The girls have declared the baby NEEDS HER OWN and the boys, too old for silly fairies, want their own barrels. The nine year old like succulents and so will get a rock garden/succulent one. The older boy suggested a miniature landscape for action figures. I will post when they are done!

I guess you could use any container but they look so nice in barrels, more in keeping.

These are wonderful. I've been visiting quite a few greenhouses & nurseries this past week (with my Mom whose in town for a visit) and noticed so many items for sale to create fairy gardens. Little watering cans, birdhouses, arbors, etc. It must be gaining in popularity? I've always loved the notion of fairies in the garden so it doesn't take much to convince me!
