My girls adore Unicorns! They all have a unicorn teddy and on my cover picture, my 8-year-old is even holding a unicorn teddy. My 11-year-old especially is fascinated with mythological creatures such as mermaids and unicorns. She has such a kind and caring heart and believes in these creatures but believes they hide from humans so they can’t be caught and studied or placed in zoos. She once confided in me that she would love to meet a unicorn but she wouldn’t tell anyone that she had met one. She would keep it a secret to protect the unicorn, even if it meant everyone ridiculed her and called her a liar. She would be the unicorn’s friend and help keep it safe and protected!
When the box arrived the girls were thrilled and couldn’t wait to open it and create the garden. Rhian, my 8-year-old even named the unicorn Unicornia. Of course, because there was three of them trying to do it at the same time, it did become a little messy, but who cares when they’re having lots of fun!
Whilst the two older girls went to the shop to get some soil (the box doesn’t come with the soil, it is the only thing you need to get) I quickly assembled the wishing well, flower pole and arch. The wishing well was a little fiddly, trying to get the string for the bucket through the hole, but with some patience, I managed.
Once the girls were back it was time to create the Unicorn Garden and they had lots of fun, as you can see from the video.
Once the Unicorn Garden was finished we put it in the sun and eventually the grass started to grow. One thing I will mention is that I noticed some of the seeds were on top of the soil and weren’t growing, sprinkled a bit of extra soil on top and within a day or two you could see the tiny sprouts of grass.
The girls had great fun watching the grass grow and every morning they would race each other to see if they could see anything yet and argue over whose turn it was to water the garden.
One Week Later
It took about a week for the grass to grow and it grew quite long. We then had to trim the grass a little as it looks like a bit of a jungle, but at least Belle the fairy, Unicornia the unicorn and Titch the mouse are hidden amongst the tall grass.
Once we’d trimmed the grass, we gave the cut pieces to our guinea pigs, Barry and Ozzy who loved having some fresh grass and we were secure knowing there were no chemicals on the grass.
If your girls are anything like mine they will love the Fairy Unicorn Garden and watching the grass grow. It has gotten them interested in growing plants and our next challenge will be to see who can grow the tallest Sunflower!
When we trimmed the grass it gave Becky the idea to grow her own grass for her guinea pigs, so they would have fresh grass available all the time. Especially as we don’t have a garden.
Now the girls are wanting more of the My Fairy Garden range and are excited about growing sunflowers and other plants.
