So dang sweet, it is! It could be called a large fairy garden but I love calling it the “Living” dollhouse because I put dollhouse dolls and furniture in it.
Here's how I did it: I used a large box that I cut down to just 6 inches tall. I lined it with a plastic trash bag and poured in potting soil. Next we built a pathway with stones, planted flowers, grass seed (not yet sprouted), added wood stumps and a way we went!
Learning links: Next week I will begin telling stories with the little dollhouse people to demonstrate how to spin a story with these props. We will discuss the beginning, middle and end of my stories. I will offer storytelling for the children to do for the class much like a puppet show. Finally, Thursday and Friday I will ask the children to write about it. It is a full vibrant experience to take to paper.
