In a community close to us, fairy doors have been found on one
of the mountain biking trails.
The doors are about 3-6 inches tall.
They are placed on the side of stumps, on short side trails off the main.
They inspired us to make fairies at school then take them out to look at the doors.
We used little, old fashioned clothespins with seeds and cones I
found on my morning walk.
We also used yarn, moss and old silk flowers.
We used the glue gun to put them together.
It was a bit of a hike in to the start of the trail.
Up some steep hills and around narrow trails.
Our fairies checked out the doors to see if they wanted to move in.
The trail led us to a bench with a view of the leaning tree.
Since it’s a mountain bike trail there were a few jumps, like the Drop of Doom.
It was a little steep so we opted to walk around.
I so like this walk, that I took my own family up there this past weekend.
I'm sure that if he had a bike, he would have rode over the Drop of Doom.
My favourite door was this little red one with a lion’s head knocker.
And I loved the handpainted signs.
Stay tuned for more of how else we’ve been playing with fairies.
