I don’t know if it’s their close resemblance to angels or what, but a few years ago my girls became obsessed with fairies. We’ve built fairy gardens, we wear fairy costumes, we read fairy books, we create fairy houses wherever we go and we attend every fairy event we can get our hands on. If your family has a fairy fan, we have some great fun on the calendar all over central Indiana and even a little further.
