Fairy house building is an easy and fun craft that can be free, gets kids into nature, and encourages imaginative play.
Outdoor and creative play is the best kind of play for a child. Building fairy houses fosters creativity and imagination.
Moms, crafters, and gardeners with smaller children (2-10) are the target audience, but there is material inside for children to enjoy on their own as well.
