Hallelujah Spring is here….wait maybe…or maybe not! This year the weather has been so unpredictable. One minute we have beautiful spring weather and the next…snow! Not even kidding!

I have been dying to plant some flowers and bring some fresh color around here yet it is still too unpredictable to plant flowers outside. Making the most of our situation I decided that my boys and I would each make a small fairy garden.

Fairy Gardens are fun and turn out really cute. They can be as extravagant or simple as you wish and are a great project to get the kiddos out enjoying the great outdoors!

Planting a Fairy Garden


  • Small container, pan or planter of some sort. I find the disposable foil baking pans that come in all sorts of shapes and sizes are perfect for this.
  • Soil
  • Flowers or seeds
  • Sticks
  • Small rocks or gems
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Fairy or small toy animal
  • Fairy garden accessories. (Optional)


Fill your pan with soil.

Plant your flowers or seeds where desired. I used this pretty Hyacinth I bought from the store and these succulents I dug up from the yard. These can be whatever you want them to be!

Popsicle sticks are great for building a little house or cave or shelter of some sort. We used the popsicle sticks to form an A Frame and then used a little door that is specially made for fairy gardens found at our local hardware store.

Add gems and rocks and create paths and trails through your garden. Add in any additional accessories. There is no right or wrong way to create your garden.

Kids and parents alike love these little gardens. The best part is seeing your child eager to take care of their special little garden and make it thrive! It can also be brought inside if the weather gets too cold.

Getting outside planting flowers and enjoying the spring weather reminds me that spring also means dirt, mud and allergies!

I started using all® free clear liquid laundry detergent over eight years ago before Big Brother was born. It was and still is the #1 detergent recommended by Dermatologists, Allergists, and Pediatricians for Sensitive Skin. I made sure to wash all my baby clothes with all® free clear detergent and it just made sense to use it for the entire family after that. When following the directions on the packaging as stated all® free clear detergent removes 99% of everyday and seasonal allergens (including cat and dog dander, dust mite matter, ragweed, grass, and tree pollen.) And while all® free clear detergent is not intended to treat or prevent allergies I figure removing all of that from our clothes each wash cycle was a good thing.

I recently found the all® free clear Mighty Pacs® and not only do these make wash time convenient but they carry the same claims as the liquid detergent. Having a great detergent that has no dyes, perfumes, certain chemicals, and irritating residues but also fights those tough stains, whitens whites and brightens colors is a win in my book.

all® free clear products can be found at most retailers including my tiny little Ridley’s grocery store. There are many things I have to drive nearly an hour out of town to get but thankfully not my laundry detergent. It’s the small things to be thankful for.

All-ridleysI can’t wait to get out more as the weather warms up and do more fun projects and planting with the boys. I know all® free clear detergent has my back for anything mother nature or my family throws at me!
