Fairy House Tour

My daughter and I went with friends to our second Fairy House Tour in Portsmouth, NH this weekend.    It was a perfect day and the displays were wonderful.  Building fairy houses is a great way to get kids outdoors and interested in the natural world.  Fall is an ideal time to build.  The weather is cooler and there's an abundance of building materials - acorns, tree bark, twigs, moss, pods, and seeds. Some builders even use seashells.  I love the details.  Here are some of the imaginative houses built by both children and adults:

This last one was labeled "The Nut House." What a great way to use all those acorns littering your driveway.  Have fun using your imagination!  For more information visit:
