Each little girl got her own fairy house to paint; as you all know my little one LOVES to paint. She was one of the last two girls to finish. I had to stop her when she began to repaint part of the roof over again. I have seen really darling fairy houses that parents have made from scratch with their kiddos, I have to say this was the perfect fairy house project for us. It was right at ER's skill level.
After painting it was time for pizza and lemonaide. I was shocked that she drank the lemonaide, it's the first time she's ever done that. Normally, it's one sip and oh no, we want apple juice! After lunch we got to make our very own fairy for inside of our fairy house. It was actually pretty clever how they did it. It's made out of pipe cleaners, a wooden ball, a bit of shiny cellophane, fluff of yarn, and some silk flowers. Maybe I'll show you how if I ever manage to russle up the materials and if at that point I can remember how!
Then we sang Happy Birthday and ate cake. By then our fairy houses were fairly dry; it was time to decorate them some more. The girls all got to go to a fairy decoration smorgasbord. Little bowls were set out with all kinds of fun things to glue onto their houses: silk flowers, tulle, leaves, etc.
We barely had time to open presents! It was a well paced and active party. There was barely any down time for ER, since she took so long to paint. ER was so excited to show off her house and she just loves it. Bluebell has adjusted to her new home, she especially loves the front garden.
