NIx Natural Area/ Fairy House building

For me this was a very special day. Wonderful area, great story, beautiful people what else can you ask for. We started out finding our hidden forest for our fairy houses. Then read the book Fairy Houses, by Tracy Kane great book it allows the magic of the woods come to life.

We had some sweet fairies of our own.
So fun yet serious fairy house constuction under way.

The above fairy house was a group effort with levels.
The kids explored the area found their spots near water, trees, twigs, fallen trees. then they started building. The one rule of the woods is to use only natural elements for the area and not to use live plants unless you do not have to pull it out to use it. These houses were constucted with twigs, bark, rocks, and anything found around them. It was a treasure to watch these children with such happiness create these lovely homes.

Happy Fairy House building,
