Get Nutty with Gal’s Guide

Each Earth Day week we help out Nickel Plate Arts with Welcome to Fairyville. This year is the 10th Anniversary and we’re getting a little nutty!

2022 activities at Gal’s Guide Library

  • “The Nut House” Fairy House Community Project
  • #FlatSquirrel Printout
  • Scavenger Hut
  • #FlatSquirrel Store
  • See us on the Fairy Trail
  • Appearance by The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl!

Bring in your nuts!

April 1-15 during library hours

Each year Gal’s Guide Library has a community fairy house where YOU can come and help with a unique element before it goes on the trail. In previous years we had a Fairy Library and had people decorate little books to include. Last year we had a Soul Sister Offrenda and asked people to make matchbox size shrines of women of history.

This year we are making “The Nut House”. It’s a squirrel library of various nuts covered in paint or glitter!

Bring in your nuts and decorate them at the Gal’s Guide Library and we’ll include them in our acorn-shaped Nut House.

Nuts to bring

  • Acorns
  • Walnuts
  • Shelled Peanuts
  • Pistachios
  • Pecans
  • Hazelnuts
  • Almonds
  • Beechnuts
  • Macademia

The finished library and books will be on display April 20-23 as part of Welcome to Fairyville hosted by Nickel Plate Arts.
