I was thinking today about Fairy Houses, also known as Gnome Homes, when I saw a bunch of them at my son’s YMCA camp. We also see these at the elementary school where I work. I wonder if these fill a need for engineering/building that is not fulfilled at school. We also typically see these more of an interest for girls, which is interesting. In any case, another great way to explore engineering!
