Summer Herb Camp: Magical Fairies!

Welcome to Mama Rosemary’s Herb Camp

I am so glad you are here!


I love fairies, don’t you?  

Let’s go and visit the world of fae, play with plants and have some fun!

A great way to get started your fairy adventure this week is with a Magical Letter From The Fairies from the Magic Onions.  Perhaps the letter leads your child to the out to the (fairy) garden.  Or maybe it invites you child to start creating some of the crafts below.  This activity from The Magic Onions is perfect for inspiring the imagination and wonder.

~ Fairy Crafts ~

Crafting is so much fun.  Here are some great crafts to get you going this week.  Be sure to put in your own touches and make each project unique!


Pounded Flower Fairy Wings, this is one of my favorite fairy crafts.  It is a feast for the eyes that transforms into wearable art!

Created a tiny little Enchanted Fairy Snow Globe World, full of sparkles and fun.  

Fairy Doors are so magical, especially when you create your own with We Know Stuff.

Follow this tutorial for How To Make A Pop-up Puppet from Jennifer Margulis but change them around to make them into fairies and even gnomes!
