There are plenty of creatures and plants outdoors to keep kids interested in playing in nature. Next time you're out in the yard, though, you might want to try conjuring some mythical creatures with your very own fairy garden.
Debi over at Go Explore Nature has myriad clever ideas for getting your kids outside, but some of the most fantastic are her suggestions for building various fairy structures. We love the fairy garden; with virtually anything you have lying around your house, you can create a magical place for your kids to enjoy. And the fairies, too, of course.
See all of Debi's suggestions at Go Explore Nature.
