Ann Arbor Fairies: Classes for Kids

Ann Arbor Fairies is a big thing. We have fairy doors, fairy walks, fairy tea parties, and fairy gardens. I'm happy to know the kids can even get in on the action during several fairy inspired events and programs.

Although I have not been over there, I have heard that Natures Garden Center Fairy Garden class is an exceptional program for kids (and adults too). On May 11, kids ages 4+ can participate in the class for just $18. To register and ask questions, email NaturesGC@gmail.com. 

A friend also directed me to a program in Fenton. Although it is a 40 minute drive for families, the May Day Faerie Festival at Heavenly Scent Herb Farm (13730 White Lake Road, Fenton, MI 48430)  is a great bargain. Families can experience 2 days of Faerie fun, lore, treats, workshops and plants for just $1.00 admission. The event takes place Saturday May 3rd, 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. or Sunday May 4th, 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.For more information be sure to visit their website or call 810-629-9208.

I've also been told that there are fairy doors and homes scattered throughout the Matthaei Botanical Gardens and a fairy village in Nichols Arboretum! Spend the afternoon or an hour wandering in search of the enchantment. Whatever your fairy wishes, it looks like they are closer to coming to fruition by making your own fairy door or fairy home. Hurry though to sign up for a class before they all disappear!
