Woodland Fairies at Gardner Village
May 31, 2017|Posted in: Uncategorized
Gardner Village is a quaint little collection of shops, surrounded by pretty landscaping, in South Jordan, Utah. For years they have had a “witch fest” every fall with scenes featuring fun and fanciful witches all through the village. We’ve made it a tradition to visit every year with our family. More recently they have done something similar with elves around Christmas time and now fairies in the Springtime.
This weekend we decided to have some family fun and we went to see the Woodland Fairies!
The gardens and landscaping are beautiful and the flowers were blooming. Scattered among the flowers and trees were little fairies trapped in mason jars, twenty-six if them, one for every letter of the alphabet from A to Z
Several of the shops had fairy gardens planted in quaint little pots outside their stores. There were also lots of garden decorations available like metal butterflies, birds, dragonflies and ants.
Since fairies are tiny we had to look closely to find some of their little homes and hiding places. They were hidden among the trees, the flowers and grasses and even in the ponds!
Some fairies were out where we could see them while others were obviously safely inside their homes and all we found were their ladders, bridges, pathways and doors.
Fairy Fun for the Kids
Our little fairy princess G5 had her own fairy wings and even rode a unicorn! The scary cowboy made her cry though and she insisted on cutting the ride short. Good thing though ’cause the unicorn had to “take a leak” right after that (it was actually more like a colossal flood) and G5 lost her shoe right in the middle of it! Yuck! There were no rainbows or cotton candy fluffs about it!
G4 wasn’t too crazy about his wings but he loved the little winged dragonfly that he caught and showed it to every basserby who would stop to take a peek. He also had fun chasing a fairy who let him use her bubble wand. But his very favorite thing was the dinosaur he found outside of one of the shops, he was totally enamoured with it and didn’t want to leave that shop. So like any good grandpa would do, grandpa bought a dinosaur for G4 to take home
The girls and I all stopped to take our pics in front of the fairy wings!
A visit to see the Woodland Fairies at Gardner Village was the perfect Family Fun Activity! Everyone had a great time!
