Make a Drive In Theater for your fairies

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

  • 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

The best part of our fairy garden is knowing the fairies have been to our Outdoor Miniature fairy Garden.

 

Here’s how we know the fairies have paid a visit to our Miniature Fairy Garden…

 

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!

This year, our garden has a farm for the fairies. We even have a country cottage waiting for them with a clothesline to hang their clothes to dry. The kids love the farm and they swear they’ve already seen fairy activity.  Click here to hop over to the Fairy Farm Post
