The Nature Museum invites all ages to a Fairy House Slide Show on Sunday, April 18 from 1-3 p.m. at the Museum at 186 Townshend Road in Grafton. Members free; non-members $5. The slide show will include pictures of some of the fairy houses constructed last September at the Museum's Fairy House Tour and also others from tours and constructions elsewhere. Some of the actual entries from last fall will also be on display at the Museum. After getting inspired by the works of others, program participants will go into the Museum's garden, weather permitting, to test out some new designs they may have devised.
Building fairy houses or structures for gnomes, elves, or pixies engages all ages; sparks close scrutiny of plants, trees, rocks, and other natural features; promotes creativity and engineering; and gets young and older outside in nature for a most enjoyable activity that encourages dialogue, reading, and scientific investigation. The next Museum Fairy House Tour is scheduled for September 25 and 26.
