Emily’s fairy house

Emily, a second grader in Mrs. Lee’s class and a real fairy lover, has been building fairy houses at her house. She recently took home Fairy Houses and Beyond by Tracy Kane, which gave her some inspiration. “All the boys thinks it’s a fairy trap, but it’s not,” said Emily.  “The number one rule is you can’t use bricks or paper, because the fairies don’t like it. You can’t use anything that people made. So I only use twine and tacky glue and pine cones, rocks, leaves, sticks… The house I’m making is a fall house.”  She put leaves on the branches.  She built a ladder so the fairies can get up to the platform.  Here is the fairy house “under construction” in her house:



And here is the house in its habitat, Emily’s front yard:


Notice the shells in the pathway.  The shells came from Bar Harbor, and were a gift from her grandparents:


And here is a closeup of the second floor loft:


Finally, here is a picture of the house with the book that helped Emily and her family create it:


Emily says that making the fairy house was a lot of work but it was also fun.  She is going to check today to see if any fairies have moved into the house.  When I go by on my daily walk, I will look, too!

    Wow, Emily! You did a really great job on that fairy house. Thanks to your mom for sending me all the great pictures. I hope a family of fairies moves right in to that nice fall house.

    We had so much fun making the Fairy House. This is an upgrade from the house we made a few years ago. I think the fairies will love it!

    I see lots of kindergarten and first grade students making fairy houses at recess. I will have to let them know that we have a book in the library that they should read!

    Dear Emily, Your fairy house is really good. Maybe one time I am in library class I will take out the fairy book and make a Thanksgiving fairy house.So when I finish my fairy house I will give Mrs.Raymond a picture of my fairy house then you can look in the fairy book and see which fairy house I used for some help.

    I have tried to make a fairy house but it didn’t work out. The leaves kept falling over and I kind of crushed it the next day. Maybe I’ll try again.
