Did you know I have fairies in my garden? Dinosaurs too! My friend Kirsten sent Hannah a wonderful gardening book that had an idea for a fairy garden using an old basket. Hannah received 3 little fairies in her Christmas stocking and Daniel received plastic dinosaurs in his. After a trip to our local op shop for a suitable basket ($4 bargain!) and a trip to the nursery for them to both pick out plants we were all set. The kids had a great time making these with only minimal help from Mum. They have been dutifully watering everyday too and there has already been some great play happening.
On a totally unrelated topic; have you checked out the Craft Hope etsy shop http://www.crafthope.com/? They are trying to raise money for Haiti with all profits going to Doctors without Borders. If I can I'll try to work out how to link their button to this blog? They are looking for donations but also have some great stuff to buy.
