Making Special Memories

When my children were little, I often tried to think of ways of making special memories for them to look back on with happiness. Little, inexpensive things that would leave lasting fond memories of their childhood.

I would do things like …..

  • hide a surprise treat in their lunch box or draw a funny face on their orange or banana
  • build a lego racetrack with small cars on the kitchen table to surprise them when they woke up
  • construct a Cubby House with sheets over the furniture

A fairy door is also the perfect for making special memories…


  • hiding a small fairy note in their lunchbox to encourage 
  • leaving a little “treat from the fairies” outside their fairy door when they wake in the morning (like a flower, a shell, a ribbon);
  • surprising them after school when they find ‘the fairies’ have left a new accessory to add to their fairy home – like a fairy tea cup, a fairy book or a key
