If you know ANYTHING about Mom Camp, you know that we always make fairy houses (or sometimes a village) to celebrate the summer solstice.
You can see some our old fairy houses here: (I think my favorite fairy “house” was the year Cinco built a baseball field for the fairies….

Mom Camp Days 12-13: Summer Solstice
We did skip last year because we were traveling in Italy, but this year we are back in force! And, the solstice happens to be TONIGHT! Stay turned for what we did for this awesome fairy spectacle.
Every good fairy house craft begins with a trip to The Dollar Store as well as Hobby Lobby for supplies — and we spend months saving boxes and any other “interesting recyclables” that come through the house. This year Cinco and The Princess were set on making houses out of clay. (A new project for Mom Camp Fairy Days) So, we left Hobby Lobby with 5 lbs of clay, lots of metallic paint and several decorative embellishments for the houses — including golden fairy wings!
After about 3 hours roaming stores — yes they can spend forEVER in Hobby Lobby— we made it home to unpack and swim.
