How could we 'plant' the flowers in our fairy garden?
A quick hunt in the pile of junk (sorry: potentially useful bits and pieces) around the side of the preschool unearthed a spare tray for the worm farm (think large round sieve).
The holes were a perfect fit for planting:
Everyone worked together to create a magical garden for the fairies:
Next came the fairy houses - small shelters built from sticks the children gathered just outside our gate:
We wove foliage from a Jasmine plant in amongst the sticks and everyone agreed that these were pretty fine shelters indeed.
So fine that once the fairies had moved out the trucks moved in.
Out with the fairy shelters and fairy garden.
In with the garages.
