Indoor Fairy Garden

2 Hours

This year I was trying to come up with an idea for a birthday present that was unique like my 6 year old niece. She's a spunky, fun little girl who basically has every toy she could want or need at this age. I wanted to come up with something she'd enjoy that wasn't the standard 'go to Walmart and buy a gift' idea. Check out my blog for more details about this indoor fairy garden that I came up with. Thanks to a local gardening centre, the project was relatively pain free, and super fun!
This is a photo of the finished garden for Sawyer, who loves all things magical. The plants take very little water and should thrive just nicely in this little world.
A close up view of the boy and girl fairy, their little black cat and the teeter/totter, which can all easily be moved about in the garden for imaginative play.

    Did you glue the pieces into the set? If so, what type of glue is best?

    I'm sure your niece will remember this long after those toys have been forgotten.
