Do you ever empty a food container and wonder what you could use it for? That was the case with our empty oatmeal box. My girls decided a fairy house would be a great use for the box. We had recently watched "The Great Fairy Rescue" , an old favorite. The little girl Lizzy in the movie makes a fairy house out of an oatmeal box which Tinkerbell then discovers. We tried our best to make it look like Lizzy's while giving it our own fairy flare. Here is the quick and easy way to make your own. The best part is it got us outside for some sun and fresh air.
First we peeled the paper off the container for a more natural look. Then we penciled and cut out the door and windows. The top cone roof was made with brown construction paper. Then we got out to the backyard to collect leaves, flowers and twigs to give it that fairy look. The best part was sitting together and glueing on the leaves and attaching the twigs. Now it needs some interior design. I'm thinking cotton ball pillows and a thimble table.
If you make one please share your pictures with us.
