I have seen all sorts of fairy gardens and terrariums popping up out there. Here are some that have caught my eye! (click on the image or the "via" to take you to the source)
I found an antique terrarium this past weekend at a yard sale, and also found some cute vintage frog figurines at another yard sale a few weeks ago, so we are well on our way to the makings of something cute and fun!
I don't know about you, but I love hummingbirds. They are tiny, pretty, and flutter like no other! When I saw this idea from Shabby Beach Nest that used a recycled soda bottle to create a hummingbird feeder, I immediately pinned it! I saw a hummingbird in my yard just the other day, so I know they will come! This is a fun craft I can do with my kids that will teach them to care about critters, as well as caring about our Earth.
I also found this awesome idea from Infarrantly Creative that is "for the birds". Har dee har har. It's a birdseed wreath that is simple enough to make with kids!
We have so many trees in our yard that making a tent with some sheets sounds like fun! We can hang out in there and read stories, make up stories, take an afternoon snooze....
And just how cute and easy are these rock monsters? Paint- check. Googly eyes- check. Glue- Check. Rocks- Check. Silly Fun- CHECK!
We have lots of other items on our summer "to do" list, like go to the beach, catch fireflies, paint birdhouses, make ice cream, but these were some of the more out of the box ideas I wanted to share.
My kids have less than a month left of school. Summer will be here before you know it! What will you be doing with your kids?
