Fairy gardening is a great way to get kids in the garden in a fun, engaging way. The avid gardener knows that gardening is a versatile, low-impact workout, so as well as it being perfect for calm days, it’s a good way to get your kids up and moving during the long summer months.

Need somewhere to start? Here are our tips to building that first fairy garden with your kids.

Nowhere to Start? Start with a Starter Kit

It can be a bit daunting to dive head first into fairy gardening with kids if you’re used to approaching it a certain way.

We recommend checking out a fairy garden starter kit that includes everything your kids will need to set up their first scene or display.
