Are you looking for a fun, creative activity to do in your backyard? If so, the BDN challenges you to build a fairy house.
A fairy house is a tiny dwelling made out of natural materials, such as twigs, bark, seashells and acorns. The rules are simple. 1. If you aren’t building on your own property, ask permission from the landowner. 2. While collecting natural materials, try your best not to harm the environment. (For example, don’t strip bark off live trees.)
Once you’ve built your fairy house — or a whole fairy village — send a photo of your creation to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 10, to be shared in a BDN feature. In your email, tell us who built the fairy house and the town where it’s located. Also, feel free to share some stories about your experience, though that isn’t required.
Your whimsical creations will be shared with BDN readers. We hope it will make them smile.
