Fairy Garden in Winter

Yesterday I mentioned that I made decorations for two small trees, one for the indoor small world play area, the other was put to use in our outdoor fairy garden.

Besides a Christmas tree, I also made some small presents to go beneath the tree as well as a snowman.

The tree presents and snowman can be easily moved around the garden, which is great because the children both love re-arranging things in there.

I still felt like something was missing so I grabbed a couple handfuls of ornaments from our stash.

These shatterproof blue balls came in a pack of 26 for $5 so I don’t much mind if they get lost or damaged. They aren’t intended for outdoor use so I’m not sure how well they will stand up to the weather when the snow starts falling more heavily. (Edited to add: the ornaments held up really well to the weather conditions including snow and an ice storm!)

If you read our last post about the fairy garden, you might remember that the LEGO men had moved in. They have since moved out and a handful of My Little Ponies have taken their place.

I still feel like something is missing, something winter-y and fun. If anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them.

Maybe more snowmen? or some sort of ice-fort with tiny snow balls? A frozen lake?
