Spring is right around the corner. This is the perfect time not only to start working on planting a garden, but how about a Fairy Garden?
Fairy Garden IdeasMy kids love playing outdoors especially in springtime when it’s not too hot, and not too cold. They especially love playing in the dirt, and playing with natural materials. Fairy gardens are the perfect outdoor nature activity that you can get your whole family involved in!

I saw fairy gardens years ago and fell in love with them. Now they have gotten so popular that you can find fairy garden accessories everywhere. I have seen them at garden stores, craft stores, even Big Lots and Toys R Us! Some of the accessories can be pretty pricey, but there are many DIY ways to make your own for a lot less.

If you are looking for a fun outdoor activity for all ages, you must check out these awesome fairy garden ideas!
