This handmade observation deck is the most recent addition to our fairy garden box. It’s made out of popsicle sticks, making it an inexpensive craft, but one that you will need to help your kids assemble. I’m sharing the tutorial to make one over at Kids Activities Blog.

These walnut shell fairy garden crafts are fun weekend projects to do with the kids. We made a nest with eggs, an owl house, and a mini succulent ‘rock’ using a faux succulent from the craft store. All you need to decorate your walnut shell halves are assorted moss that you glue into place.

This tire swing was made using a stick slingshot that I had created for Flynn to play with. He hadn’t picked it up in a while so I re-purposed it, along with a spare tire from a broken car.
