Fairy gardens are a fun way to mix toys with nature.  It’s also a great way for kids to spend more time outside.

As you’ll see in our collection of fun fairy garden photos below, the sky is the limit when it comes to ideas and just how expansive you can create these gardens.

Each year, our family visits a local Scandinavian Center where they do a full Midsummer’s celebration.  The festival includes a large walk-through fairy garden that our kids love to visit and rearrange the fairies, gnomes, other figurines, houses etc.

If you’re looking for a fun way spruce up your gardens and want to get your kids into gardening (or just get them outside), check out these ideas below.
