As a grandmother, I enjoy giving our kids things that involve action on my part. Last weekend while in Houston I brought along a fairy door, two windows (fastened onto a tree trunk) and two fairies that sit on their own tree-like limbs. It was such fun creating a fairy garden with a pebble path and moss. With a birthday coming up, I ordered the garden furniture below. Ordered from Plow and Hearth, these items target our granddaughters, but our nine-year-old grandson is a good sport and thinks up funny woodland stories.
Grandson D’mitri recently read the book MY SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN, a Newbery awarded book by Jean Craighead George. The boy hero, Sam Gribley was unhappy living in his family’s NYC apartment and ventured into the wilderness with bare necessities. He made a home for himself by burning out a large tree!
