Crafting Scottish Folk and Fairy Tales.

That's right folks, it's time for our craft project. We did some research about Scottish folk and fairy tales and Aiden decided that he wanted to make Nessie (The Loch Ness Monster) and Eliana and I decided to make fairies. 

The supplies.

Eliana making a fairy.
The completed Loch Ness Monster. Aiden decided that it needed to have some hair. I decided that since we can't be certain if it's even real, speculating about hair is perfectly acceptable. 
Eliana's completed fairies.

We had a bunch of fun making these, and we think that they will be nice decorations for our dinner table at the end of the month. That is if we don't offend the fairies before then. *According to folklore, fairies can be very helpful around the house (fingers crossed that my dishes are done tomorrow morning), but if you offend a fairy, it will become very mischievous and troublesome. 


  1. AWESOME! What a great project, and great fun to read about/hear the stories, too!

  2. Oooo, now I'm going to make fairies! It's also fun to use sticks outside in your yard or the park and build fairy houses, ala ramshakle teepees. My 5-y-o loves to talk about them coming to their houses and keeps looking for fairies in them (hasn't spotted one yet)

    1. A few years ago while on a camping trip we made fairy houses, it was a lot of fun! You've inspired me to make that a project for home too! I love that your little keeps checking the houses, that's so cute!
