Emily (6) and I will have the week of New Year's home by ourselves (during the day anyway). I'm usually working, so I want to make it really special. Tonight we were brainstorming what we would do. I found something fairly-like along with a whole host of other random crafts. Then I kept delving into fairies and came up with a whole week's worth of fairy play - building a fairy house from scratch (book to describe how), enchanted terrarium, Fairy Garden Shrinky Dinks, and building a (pre-made) cardboard fairy house along with making 6 fairies. We're getting the first book of the Fairy Houses Series of books and the DVD from The Fairy Houses Series - this won a Parent's Choice award. We are also getting the Fairies Toob, which is supposed to be great.
Overall, this will cost about $100. I don't really want to spend that, so my mother and my sister are getting everything for me as my Christmas presents - usually can't think of anything for myself anyway! lol Actually, we're probably going to get the book on how to build the fairy house now, because I think it will be a work in progress - gathering sticks and stuff like that when we're not in the dead of winter. I can't wait! Do your girls love fairies?
