Build a Fairy House!

 It’s SPRING. It is time for the Hardwick Fair-ies to wake up from their winter nap.  Pick up a Fairy Cottage Kit to take home.  The kit provides a lovely piece of tree bark for a base, a house shape, and some surprise embellishments.  It is up to you to find recyclables around your house to add to your Hardwick Fairy Cottage.  P.S. Fairies like broken jewelry and candy, pinecones, feathers, shells, stones, and shiny objects on their houses.
