Just in time for school vacation, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department will be co-hosting their second annual Fairy Home Building Workshop with the Franklin Park Coalition on Thursday, April 20, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Schoolmaster Hill in Franklin Park.
What’s a Fairy Home Building workshop?
Local children and families are invited to help lure the magical creatures by building homes for them. The advent of spring is the best time to build fairy houses, experts say, providing the magical creatures with shelter for the coming summer months and the flitting season that begins in late May.
This FREE event will include storytelling and books from ReadBoston along with face painting. Children are encouraged to wear their favorite fairy and elf costumes. Natural materials will be provided, and youngsters are welcome to explore their surroundings to find natural elements such as sticks, stones, and leaves to adorn their fairy houses.
Schoolmaster Hill is located on Circuit Drive between the William Devine Golf Course Clubhouse and Shattuck Hospital. You can find more information here.
