10 Best Fairy Gardens for Your Little Ones to Enjoy

If you’ve ever tried to complete a garden project or get your lawn mowed, with littlies in tow, you’ll know how difficult it can be to keep them occupied while you finish your day’s weeding, digging and planting. That’s where a fairy garden might save the day. The tiny, gorgeous figurines, combined with the mystique and inherent wonder, is perfect to spark a child’s imagination and creative play. Even better if the fairy garden is hidden and your little one feels it’s a secret world known only to them and their most trusted friends and family.

To inspire your parental fairy genius, here are the ten best fairy gardens we found online for your little ones to enjoy!

 

1. The Wooden Barrel Fairy Garden

 

This is the quintessential fairy garden: cute enough to entertain your young ones and small enough that you don’t need to spend a week constructing it. Plus, if you have more than one child, you can easily have one wooden barrel fairy garden per child so there’s no argument at play time.

2. The Fairy Cottage Garden

 

The fairies can visit each others’ cottages and go on playdates! Love the green lawn, little wishing well and walkover bridge. Sometimes it’s all those small details that make the difference, right? All they need now is a tiny lawn mower there with a GreenSocks logo on it. Smile.

3. The Broken Fairy Pot Garden

 

An awesome way to recycle your broken garden pots – or a fun excuse to crack them! Your young ones will love these charming broken fairy pot gardens. You can accessorise them more and more as you go, plus build paths and trails all around them.

4. The Emerald City Fairy Wizard Garden

 

How clever is this? Perfect for your little wizards and the perfect excuse to re-watch The Wizard of Oz with your children when your garden projects are finished for the day!

5. The Water-Feature Fairy Garden

 

As long as your little one is old enough to be safe around water without your supervision, fairy gardens with water features are an awesome idea to keep them amused. They can take their little fairies swimming and their creative minds can make up a whole new set of water-featured, fairy stories.

6. The Bucket Fairy Garden

 

Another great idea for a confined space fairy garden. Just add fairy characters and this bucket could keep your little one’s imagination busy for hours.

Beautiful by day, but even more mystical by night with night lights throughout this very pretty fairy garden for the little ones (and those little at heart).

8. The Backyard Fairy Garden

 

We love this one because it looks like the most realistic version of what your young ones might create themselves. It’s fun, not overly manicured and building it (and playing in it) would keep kids busy for ages!

9. The Tea Pot Fairy Garden

 

This Tea Pot Fairy Garden is just one of the stunning fairy garden features sold by Australian website Garden Sparkle. Look at the cute, miniature pegs and clothes line above the mini cat. Their website is gorgeous too and they have over 40,000 Facebook followers, so we mustn’t be the only ones in love with their products.

10. The Mother-Of-All-Fairy-Gardens

 

Okay, so probably a bit over the top for your standard fairy garden, but we were so in awe that we just had to include it. Americans Debbie and Mike Schramer built this fairy garden over six months in 1993, when they lived in Washington State and loved going for walks in the mountains and by the sea to collect natural materials. If you’d been quicker off the mark, you could have bought it in 1995 when it was displayed in the American Visionary Art Museum with a price tag of US$12,000. But today, this mother-of-all-fairy-gardens commands US$100,000 on Etsy here.

The Schramer’s fairy garden treehouse stands at 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide, it has 14 rooms all completely furnished with little chairs, beds, tables, dishes, books, sculptures, paintings, brooms, shoes, etc., also made from nature. It uses driftwood, branches, roots, vines, twigs, leaves, moss, flowers, stones, shells, seaweed, kelp, leaf skeleton, wild grasses, herbs, pods, the list goes on. It’s incredible!
