A while ago I gave some serious consideration to making her this fantastic thing (I'll keep it a secret, in case I actually get around to doing it) that she could keep forever and pass along to her own daughter or grand-daughter should that day come, but I haven't quite gotten there yet. Perhaps one
Here's how I created my little masterpiece, because even if she could care less about it, I think it turned out pretty bad ass. I took a metal pot/tray thingamajig that's made for plants and I filled it with potting soil 3/4 of the way up. Then I planted four succulents. Wanna know why? Because they're called succulents, they are pretty rad, they're little so they fit perfectly AND they barely need watering! Win-win-win-win! Then I covered all the exposed soil with teeny tiny mulch and started adding the Fairy touches. I added a little boy and a little girl fairy. I added a little teeter totter (see saw), and a little black kitty, because everyone should have a black kitty. Then I added a gazing ball, a bird bath, a crystally-like rock, and some little river stones around the plants. Et voila! An indoor Fairy Garden for a 6 year old magical girl. I secretly hope she likes it.
