We began our new *Faerie Walkabout* (a faerie trail) that meanders through the woodlands. Along the way we built faerie houses and will also plant shade plants. People will stay to the path so as not to disturb the plant life, wild life and faerie houses as they enjoy our walkabout.

You know children are engrossed in the moment and enjoying themselves when they spend an hour and a half in the woodlands building faerie houses, and even work straight through lunchtime. When you're having fun who thinks about food??? 

 The children used bark, moss, sticks, pinecones, acorns, leaves, stones and other natural materials to construct their houses. Only natural materials are allowed to be used in faerie houses.

How magical is the forest, and children do love it so, it speaks to the child in a special way, may we as adults never lose that magic, Cheers Marie

What a peaceful walk and activity. I love the uses that the children made of the bits of nature that they found. I bet their gardens are full of fairy houses now. The lamp post at the end is perfect!
