Make a Milk Jug Fairy House!

My daughter, Honor (age 3), and I had a wonderful time together transforming a gallon milk jug into a fairy house for our ever-developing fairy garden.

I had Honor cut out rectangles from a foam sheet and then took those to make a shingled roof by hot gluing the pieces on the top of the jug.  We also made a door and a chimney from foam sheets.  The rest of the decorations were made with foam stickers that Honor placed all over the jug.

                        

It certainly is a color addition to the fairy garden and sure to attract a magical new resident!

    Fairy houses are on the list of things I want to do with my buddies. Many seem like they would be pretty complicated for kids to make but yours looks perfect! Young kids COULD do this!
