Fairy Houses & Other Magical Activities for Kids and Weekly Link Party Too!

Looking for a tiny sprinkling of magical fun for you and your child? Add a little whimsy to your child's day with one of these magical ideas! Unicorns, fairies, rainbows, and more are all present below.
A Little Update:
This seemed like the perfect theme for this week's link party since I'm coming off a little blog break. I spent the break focusing on spending every moment I could with my kids. My daughter and I went to the American Girl Doll Store for her birthday. The kids and I played at our local children's museum. There were block tires, crafts, playdough, and, of course, loads of snuggles. Before the break, I was feeling a little burned out and a whole lot tired. I'm guilty of putting my eggs in too many baskets. (Although...right now that might not be a bad idea since our chickens have been laying eggs like crazy and I currently have almost five dozen in the refrigerator. Those aren't the eggs I'm talking about, though.) Sometimes I stretch myself a little too thin. This time I needed to step away for just a bit to be able to come back with a clearer vision of where this little blog of mine should go and how I can better manage keeping up with it.

Break or not! We all have those times where we need a little whimsy in our lives. So without further delay, here are several magical activities to try with your kids!

This Week's Features:
1. Paper Dahlia Flower Cone Wreath / Party Fetti
These oversized flower wreaths are simply stunning! It's a craft you can do with the kids and everyone will feel proud to display. Wouldn't they look gorgeous in a little girl's room?!

2. Fairy House Mason Jars / The Country Chic Cottage
What a fun way to make a fairy house! Whether you are using them as whimsical decor, outdoor garden accessories, or even child's play, they're super cute and, of course, magical!

3. Unicorn Bark / My Thoughts, Ideas, and Ramblings
I love making homemade bark with my kids. It's fun, simple, and lends itself to an endless amount of variations. This particular version of bark was inspired by magical unicorns. It's almost too pretty to eat. I know I wouldn't be able to resist, though.

4. Tooth Fairy Letter Set / Somewhat Simple
Every tooth fairy could use a little help from time to time and this printable letter does the trick. What a cute idea for the next time your child loses a tooth!

5. Rainbow Playdough / Natural Beach Living
Have you ever tried making your own playdough? Here's a fun recipe to try! The assortment of colors is fun and festive. And I'm loving the glitter playdough! It reminds me of magical pixie dust.

6. Hatbox Fairy Village / The Life of Jennifer Dawn (right here!)
This is an oldie but a goodie. I made this fairy village for my daughter almost six years ago and it's still one of her favorite things to pull out and play with.

Now it's time for...
