Last month I told you about the treasure hunt the fairies created a few years back, for our little friend next door.
She loved it SO much, that we did it again last summer. But — different fairies – so different treasure hunt! The previous hunt was with the painted and jewel-encrusted little pebbles, with little rhyming clues leading her from one treasure to the next.
Last summer, the new fairies, weren’t QUITE as ambitious or poetic. But – just as clever!
The new treasures were made from little slabs of branch, dyed and painted with magical words, and, of course, embellished with sequins, sparkles, and magic dust, as only a fairy could do.
Whilst hiding the
treasures, THIS little
fella came along.
The fairies thought
THAT was pretty
magical, and showered
him with their
The fairies got carried away and made over 20 of these treasures, which they call “doodlewinks”. So there were actually two treasure hunts. One at the beginning of summer, and one near the end.
Not much instruction is required. You can see from the pictures, exactly how they turned out. You could, of course, paint rocks, or anything else you might think of, along the same lines.
Hello fairy friends! Where has the time gone since the last post?!?
It’s almost Summer already! Neighbor Mom next door, told us yesterday that our little friend has already starting going through their backyard, searching for evidence of new fairies.
We are just put the finishing touches on this year’s door, made especially for her. This year, we think it will just be one fairy. We’ll post a picture of the door, when it appears in their backyard!
We’re not sure what the Fairy’s name will be… if you need a hand finding the name of your Garden Fairy, click this link!
So this project didn’t cost a penny! But hearing her reaction… was priceless!
Have fun and keep the magic alive!
