A Fairy Garden For Kids – Made Easy With Kits From Etsy

Making a fairy garden for kids can be a lot easier with the help of Etsy’s artists.

In a previous article, I have talked about fairy garden kits on Etsy before. Mostly for adults, although some of them your children could also create without any issues ;-).

Here in Europe, the end of summer is near, so when the leaves start to fall, I will have to put some fairy-stuff inside and/or cover-up some mini-plants. But of course, you can still make a fairy garden for kids inside the house and enjoy those the whole year round!

So let’s show off some pretty little things I have found on Etsy, I am pretty sure you and your children will enjoy these as well.

Shop number 1. SquishKits

Makes : 

All kinds of kits and sets for kids. From fairy gardens to unicorns, fairy kits, baking play dough, and more.

Some more info :

The fairy garden set specifically is an ‘enchanted’, sensory kit.

What this means is these are picked by hand to stimulate cognitive development for your child.

Shop number 2.PartynWithPlants.

I admit that I have talked about ‘PartynWithPlants’ with plants before, but I thought I would mention this company again, as it is mostly suited for kids! They make Terrarium Kits, Fairy Garden Kits, Succulent Plant Gifts.

– I can’t seem to find any negatives, can you?

My Final Opinion :

I think this could be one of the perfect fairy garden kits to start with or for advanced β€˜gardeners’ and lots of fun at birthday parties! (sorry for the double post though, but this one keeps catching my eye πŸ˜‰ ).

The Good And The Bad :

– a LESS MESS method so you won’t be finding glue and glitter for months after completion

My Final Opinion :

Now this kit, I find very original! I see myself buying one of these kits as an adult, just to hang the lanterns in my front yard, somewhere in the neighborhood of my fairy garden πŸ˜‰ Also, it’s a piece that still can be used afterward, so it doesn’t end up in the trash when the kids don’t play with it anymore.

Place(s) To Buy: Etsy

Price: 20,00$

Overall Rank: stars

The Good And The Bad :

The good:

– Does contain lots off materials for the price to pay

– fast shipping

The bad:

– doesn’t seem to have much in stock, so you would need to wait for it to be made

– the painted rocks look like they are painted in an ‘easy’ way, you could have your kid do it themselves?

– no refunds or exchanges

My Final Opinion :

I’m sorry, but I wouldn’t buy this kit honestly, because you can get rocks and ceramic pots yourself and paint it together with your kid and it would look just as awesome.

BUT, if you like pretty jewelry, this shop seems to be thΓ© place to be!

Shop number 5.ParvaGifts

Makes:

Fairy garden sets, special garden gloves, other figurines.

Some more info:

Not really what you would call a complete ‘kit’, but I really wanted to mention this seller, as I just love the figurines.

The fairy garden figurines are made of sturdy poly-resin material.

Includes 3 piece fairy garden figurines: 1 Fairy on Leaf Swing, 1 Fairy on Wood Swing, and 1 Enchanted Garden Sign Swinging from Ornate Garden Arbor.

The Good And The Bad :

The good:

– Can be placed outdoors or indoors, because of the materials used.

– I think it is a very low price for the lovely and artistic pieces

– order risk-free, returns are possible (there could be exceptions)

– sturdy

– free standard shipping

– very good quality

The bad:

– only 1 left, better be quick!

My Final Opinion :

Of course, your kid doesn’t need to assemble these, but don’t you think they would love to put these figurines in their self-made fairy gardens?

 

Final Conclusion.

A fairy garden for kids addresses your children’s creativity for sure. I would prefer number 1 or number 3 of these shops on Etsy. I am curious what YOUR opinion is?

  1. Oh this is great to find, thank you for such a great selection of kits for fairy gardens. And actually, they are good not just for kids, but also adults! I have a granddaughter that is nearly 4 and we do spend in the garden doing bits of planting and clearing and pretend play. So it will have to be no. 2 PartynWithPlants for her, as we can indulge in that even when it is cold and wet outside.
