Fairy Fun

We created this lilac fairy just before the lilacs went into bloom. We hid her each day in a new spot near the bus stop, so, the kids would hunt for her while they waited for the bus. There are many fairies that you can create that can last all summer long; the Basil Fairy, the Sunflower Fairy, the Lacrosse Player Fairy, the Fairy Sisters and so much more.  Any kind of fairy you can imagine, you can create. Feels kinda like magic, doesn’t it?
