Elysa's Enchanted Fairy Garden Playspace
Welcome to Elysa's enchanted fairy garden play space! Come in and have a seat next to the cotton mama made play quilt and grab a gnome and take a visit to the enchanted forest, or a walk in the fairy meadow, or how about a splash in the magical river...just be careful near the dragon's cave! Grab a wooden Prince or Princess and take a visit around the enchanted castle mama made. What's this on the tree trunk a...wool felted seed baby snug in a leaf blanket. Perhaps, you'd like to snuggle one of the homemade waldorf babies or the sock monkey in the salvaged antique cradle with grandma made quilts. Or perhaps, you'd like to grab one of the wooden gnome homes off the dollhouse bookshelf. Grab some silks out of the basket mama found at a tag sale and drape around them to create a little landscape. When you're done you can grab the rainbow mama made butterfly wings off the bookcase and fly around under the arbor. You'll have your pick of fairy and princess costumes to the right of the baby cradle. If you open the basket you'll find some of nature's best treasures of stones, seashells, acorns, and some bits of moss. In the purple castle tower that mama painted with low voc paints, you'll find a nice stash of beeswax to model with along with some beeswax crayons and chalk to color on the table opposite the arbor. Perhaps, that Angel Fairy (mama made!) on the top shelf of the bookshelf would like to come down and take a visit to her friends in the tree house. When you're done please don't forget to help your friends back to their homes! Thanks for visiting!
Many of the toys in my daughter's play space were made by me or salvaged and redone by me. I enjoy haunting thrift shops and tag sales to gather cast off items that can be turned into enchanted playthings for all my little ones to play with. Wooden salad bowls easily become little nesting places for nature gathered items and wool sweater's soon become new toys for our little ones to enjoy. The wooden items were from salvaged pine donated by our friends. Our family lives and homeschools with an eclectic mix of Waldorf, Enki and all things Holistic! We've always encouraged open ended play with our four little ones and LOVE mama made and craft show finds. The best toys come from nature or are made with love.
