Fairy garden small world play

decorated bottle fairy house

Our latest Bostik Bloggers parcel arrived full of crafty products and I immediately knew what to make. The theme was garden and my 4 year old loves her fairies so I thought it would be fun to make a fairy garden for small world play. We’ve been collecting little items for a while so we had everything we needed to make a special fairy house and place it in our indoor fairy garden.

We took a sweet little bottle and painted the bottom part with white acrylic paint and the top with red and white acrylic paint to look like a toadstool.

My 6 year old drew on a door with a permanent marker pen then looked through our craft supplies to see how he could make it into a suitable fairy house.

We used the Bostik Glu Dots, flowers, butterflies and leaves to decorate the fairy house. The Glu Dots are really easy to use but super strong so we knew they would keep everything in place.

We were really proud of our little fairy house, it’s the perfect size for our fairy figures.

Little Sis is really enjoying playing with her fairy toys at the moment so we created a little fairy world with some of her toys in a vintage box. We decorated it with a wooden fence and wooden sign, held in place with more Glu Dots, and some of our little animals at the bottom. It makes a cute play scene although I’m sure it won’t be long before my 4 year old starts adding more things in!
