Make Forest Fairy Houses in the Great Outdoors

Here in Arizona, Fall means we can finally venture outdoors, so I guess we’re on a bit of an outdoors kick. Last week we shared ideas to help you go outdoors with your kids, and this week I’ve got a fun and imaginary outdoor activity: building tiny fairy houses out of items you collect in the forest!

We went up to the mountains recently and stayed with some friends in a beautiful cabin. The kids were a little restless one day, so I dug into my childhood memories of making woodland fairy houses with my mom; whenever we were camping. Since I love all things miniature, it was one of my favorite outdoor activities, and so I showed the kids how to set up little fairy homes with beds, dressers, tables, and any other decoration or furniture our creativity could think of.

If you’ve just got boys, perhaps you might consider these houses for a little gnome rather than a fairy. Regardless, my boys loved this forest game — they built a tree house, a mini playground and even an electrical generating plant!

Hello! It’s Sara here from Compass Crate. Can you believe that summer break is over?! The kids are back in school, and it seems like autumn is quickly creeping up on us. While some people love spring and lots of people love summer, I absolutely adore autumn. The change in leaves, the cooler weather, the anticipation of holidays. There isn’t much about autumn that I do not enjoy. Most of all, I love to go outdoors.

Life easily has a way of getting too busy and outdoor adventures seem to be the first to go. Yet simple things such as taking a walk or visiting a park are important things to do with kids. So, in an effort to encourage my family to get outside and explore nature, we have put together our Adventure Packs with outdoor games and other things to get us excited about exploring the great outdoors.

First Day of School Activities

Back to School - Easy Photo Backdrop

Sadly this weekend marks the official end of summer, and kids everywhere are going back to school. My friend Kelly from Cloudy Day Gray shared a glimpse at her family’s first day of school activities, and I was delighted to see the way she used our Back to School with Neon printables to create a fab back to school party.
