A to Z Fairy Quest

Yes, this free quest is a happy summertime activity for kiddos, but there’s an added benefit. It also helps younger kiddos practice their reading skills over the summer break, and they’ll want to do it. Isn’t it amazing what a little fairy dust can accomplish?! (Don’t worry, their learning will be our little secret.)

The A to Z Fairy Quest begins in the center court of Garnder Village, near the water tower.

Winged Photo Opportunities

The Woodland Fairies are fun for kids of all ages. Yup, even the teens can get in on the act.

If, on the other hand, you’ve turned these fanciful activities into an annual tradition, prepare yourself. The fairies have created new homes up high, down low, and even on the water. In fact, you can easily walk right under a captivating residence without even realizing it, so make sure to look low AND high.

A Step in the Bright Direction
