Herb Garden to Fairy Garden

Home > Educators > Newsletters

Anne Hutton has been working on a herb garden with the children and after a few simple steps the herb garden evolved into a  “fairy garden”.

“After going to total gardens for bags of soil and pots of herbs we made our herb garden.

We used the empty herb pots and cut out doors in the pots and decorated them with flowers, feathers etc to create a fairy garden.

We collected bark found in the grounds of the Family Day Care Office when  dropping in time sheets and the bark was used to make roofs.  

Items were found at the op shop to decorate and as the plants grow lots of magic can happen.”
