Make Your Own Fairy Dwelling
Add some magic to your garden with your very own Fairy House! Choose between two different projects- both options include all materials and easy to follow instructions, provided by The Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, CT.

Option 2: Build your very own Fairy House using sticks from your backyard! These kits will be available on a first come, first serve basis beginning Monday July 26th and remaining available for pick up until Saturday August 14th, or while supplies last. No registration is required, and is recommended for older children, teens or as a family group project.
