If you were a fairy, wouldn't you want to hang out in this garden?

My mom recently came to visit, and I really wanted her and my four-year-old to get a chance to make a fairy garden.  It was something I’d been wanting to make myself for a long time but just kept not quite getting to.  I figured that having the two of them make their fairy garden together would not only be fun, but it would give my little girl something to remember her grandma by between visits.  They had a great time, and my little one likes to climb up into the window to look at it and play with it.

Here’s another Craft Jr. project for your fairy garden – make tiny fairy houses, too!

What You Need to Make a Fairy Garden

Once you've put your soil into your fairy garden container, choose some of your larger plants and furniture as "anchor points" for your design. We wanted ours to be a park.

Fairy Garden Potting Soil 179x300 How to Make an Indoor Fairy Garden

Add potting soil to cover the plants' roots and raise the level of your fairy garden to near the top of your container.

Fairy Garden Aquarium Gravel 179x300 How to Make an Indoor Fairy Garden

Use colored aquarium gravel to cover the soil and give your fairy garden a finished look. This reddish gravel looked just like a miniature version of the lava rock you would find in a park. We also used black and white to make a path through the park.
