Building Fairy Houses

by This is Carrie on November 12, 2009

We attended this amazing “Harvest Festival” at our friend’s Waldorf inspired charter school last week. The favorite activity, by far, was creating a fairy house for the “Fairy House Village”. Just looking at the spread of natural building materials made me teary at the thought of the creative possibilities. Princess decided to create a “beach tipi” complete with shells, “tiny fairy hat racks”, and “moss furniture where they could sit and watch tv” (and now all the Waldorf education disciples are groaning).

What a wonderful way to sue your imagination. A great idea.

I'm not groaning. It may be a grand Waldorf cliche, but I love this kinda stuff. Makes me feel so dumb every time I want to buy them a plastic toy…it's not just a romantic notion: kids really can have a fabulous time with twigs and rocks (a glue gun helps.)

Paprikapink – don't get me wrong. I LOVE this kind of thing. LOVE.

I just figured the die-hard Waldorfians would groan when they heard my daighters fairies were watching TV in their little fairy houses.

So fun! Ever since we went to see Tinkerbell at Dland, I can't get over how cute the little hidden fairy house were!
