While living at Fruitlands, 10-year-old Louisa May Alcott wrote in her diary that she “had a lovely time in the woods with Anna and Lizzie. We were fairies, and made gowns and paper wings. I ‘flied’ the highest of all.”
Friday of April School Vacation Week, don your wings, grab your crowns, and come play in the Fruitlands woods as Louisa and her friends once played. At 1:30 and 3:30 gather to learn about the little folk of the woodlands and hear stories of their mischief, including excerpts from Louisa May Alcott’s Flower Fables. Head out on the trails to explore the fairy woodland. Borrow a bag to collect natural materials and then build a fairy house along the path. Make a fairy wand to take home with you.
