When we first started planning we were going to use a small container. Then today while we were outside doing yard work I remembered Princess's old turtle sandbox. It hadn't been used in quite some time and I love re-purposing items. Turtle seemed like the perfect fit for a Fairy Garden or Imagination Garden. Whimsical and big enough for many items.
We started with some violets we picked up on clearance at Walmart.
Princess added a geranium in her favorite color.
Then we spent about 20 minutes setting it up exactly to her liking.
She has a pond with ducks, farm animals, sea shells, flowers, seeds planted, princesses & more.
She had so much fun she made a little one that she can play with anytime she wants.
This picture is darling.
