"And as the seasons come and go here's something you might like to know. There are fairies everywhere: under bushes, in the air, playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day. So listen, touch, and look around-in the air and on the ground. And if you watch all nature's things, you might just see a fairy's wing" - Author Unknown

The wee folk are coming to Hutchison House this March from Tuesday March 14 to Friday March 17. The Victorian era saw an increase in the interest in fairies and elves as settlers looked back to the folk tales of their ancestors. Fairies and elves were both good and bad, pranksters and helpful. They were the guardians of nature, woodland animals and gardens. They were helpful if you respected them, but caused problems when you didn't. Over the course of March Break children will have a variety of opportunities to create their own fairies or elves and woodland villages from a variety of recycled and natural materials.
