Drive In Theater

by Kid Friendly Things To Do

In summer, we love going to the drive in movie theater. So, we decided the fairies should have one, too! We made a “Fly In Theater” for the fairies.

  • We used some fun pieces of wood that we’ve picked up on our beach days to frame the theater in. The look a little like prehistoric bones
  • We used shells turned upside down for seats
  • Finally, we used another beach find – A flat rock – for our movie screen 
  • I found the movie scene from “Mary Poppins” on the back of a movie case and cut it out
  • *you could have it laminated to withstand rain
  • We glued it with a warm glue gun
  • The rock nestled perfectly in our fun wood frame

Fairy Direction Signs 

from Kid Friendly Things To Do

  • Abi, made a sign for the fairies. I love how she used clothespins as a Shortcut. She’s taking after her mommy! 
  • She found a sturdy stick and used a pen to write directions for the fairies on clothespins
  • She also found  a square piece of craft glass and made a door to Fairy World to go under the sign

  • This year, we added a pop of color to our fairy sign. I bought medium sized colored clothespins (at Michael’s Craft Store), and I wrote directions with a fine tip white paint pen
  • I also found a 4 pack of pixie dust bottles in the fairy house section of Michael’s

Fairy Window

from Kid Friendly Things To Do

  • The boys decided to make a River Birch into a fairy house
  • I found some twigs that would bend for us into round windows, but you could easily make a square window from 4 twigs
  • We glued 2 twigs inside the window in the shape of a cross 
  • Then we found yellow leaves on the ground to go behind the window, so it would look like light from inside the tree
  • I found mini clothespins to pin the windows to the tree

A Popsicle Stick Fairy Picnic Table by Simple Practical Beautiful

The best part of our fairy garden is knowing the fairies have been to our fairy creations. We always find a little pixie dust sprinkled around some of the kid’s fairy creations each morning. The kids get very excited when they see pixie dust on the ground. They come running into the house, so excited! It’s so much fun to share these summer memories with the kids. I hope you’ll find some inspiration from this post to create your own fairy garden memories with the kids. Happy Fairy Gardening!
