30+ Fairy Crafts and Activities

Fairies!  Oh my!  So magical and enchanting!  So elusive and intriguing!  Were you as smitten with fairies as I was as a child?  As kids, we hunted for pixies in the garden and nearby wooded areas.  I wished at dusk, to catch glimpse of Tinkerbell flitting about my yard. And at night, I’d imagine a team of sprites sprinkling fairy-dust over my bed as I drifted off to sleep.

Garden Fairies come at dawn,

bless the flowers, then they’re gone.
