If there's one thing I know, it's that little girls like to make little things.
This is a great outdoor project little ones can enjoy all summer long. Work together to collect small sticks, rocks and old doll house furniture. If you don't have any old doll house furniture, you can use small toys or make tiny chairs or tables out of sticks, glue and string.
Fill a pot with soil, I've found that ordinary dirt works just fine for this project because most of the plants you'll use just grow out in the yard, but you certainly can use potting soil, or a scoop of nice dirt from your vegetable garden.
Look for dark, moist areas around your house for moss. It grows on or around the base of trees, on rocks and fallen down logs. Plants like Chickens & Hens, sedum, tiny pansies can be planted within the moss. You could dig up grass from your yard and plant it inside, just "mow" it with scissors.
Take the little rocks and make rock walls or stepping stones. Use the sticks to make a fence or a swing. For our swing we used sticks with a fork in them to hold on each end, one strait stick and hung a piece of bark for the seat.
Make sure you water your garden often to keep it healthy, especially the moss. And be sure to tell your children no to pick up any mushrooms or toadstools to use in this project since most are very poisonous!
Have fun, use your imagination and watch for fairies coming to your garden!
