A Night with the Fairies
On Tuesday evening, our library along with Miss Kathy (the librarian) hosted a night with the fairies. The evening was filled with Irish fairy songs, the story Fairy Houses was read, and then we made Fairy Houses in a shoebox. Of course Eda, and her friend Alyson wore their fairy costumes and danced to the beautiful music.
When making fairy houses you use all items from nature, but nothing living. Sand, shells, sticks, berries, leaves, pinecones, etc. You never use anything imitation, because that can harm the fairies.
We had a wonderful time, and we will be making fairy houses outside this Spring. We hope a fairy will visit you, and spread her magic.
