Next week we celebrate International Build a Fairy Home and Den Week
This week was created to help raise awareness of the importance of Nature and Creativity in a Child’s life.
BUILD A FAIRY HOUSE WEEK 21st – 28th June 2015
The spirit needs to be recognized, nourished, encouraged; the imagination needs space and seeds of wonder to nurture, and the body needs fresh air and exercise.
Fairy house building and Den making are part of the magic that occurs when children and nature mix. That natural- magic is part of of childhood. The lack of time spent outdoors is having an effect on children’s health and well-being. What better way to help reconnect our children with the natural world than building fairy houses and constructing dens – fueling their imaginations and letting creativity flow.
“Creating secret forts, dens, hideouts, and playhouses isn’t just any random kind of play. It’s a universal drive that’s rooted in kids’ healthy development.” – David Sobel
