Letters from a fairy are some of the most precious gifts and we share how to Write Fairy Letters.
I love receiving hand written letters by ‘snail mail’ in our letterbox.
- I love the sound of the Postman stopping his motorcycle outside our house and a few seconds later riding away, knowing that this stop means he has put something in our mailbox.
- I love the feeling of walking to the front gate, opening the letterbox to find an actual handwritten envelope – not a window faced typed one.
- I love the anticipation of who it might be from, the warm feeling that this person has taken the time to personally write to me and the pleasure of sitting down to read it.
And even though so much has changed over the years with emails, social media and text messages; actually receiving a personal, handwritten letter is still super special.
When was the last time you received anything besides a bill, a window faced enveloped, or junk mail in your mailbox? Thanks to the Internet and social media, we rarely experience the joy of receiving a physical letter from a friend.
Emails may be faster and easier to send but they are some what impersonal. There is something special about finding a handwritten envelope in the letterbox that is addressed to you personally!
When I was little, ‘Pen Pal’s were popular. Pen Pals were friends we never met, who lived far away from us and we sent letters to each other, usually for years.
We shared about our hobbies, our friends, school, pets and whatever else we wanted. I was always so excited when I saw my Pen Pal’s envelope in the letterbox.
I remember receiving birthday cards in the post, where someone had taken the time to go to the shop and select a special greeting card just for me. They would then write a special message in it and post it to me. So wonderful! And I would always keep them.
Fairy Letters are no different to a child.
Tiny, handwritten notes left outside a fairy door or in their mailbox are treasured!
Over the years we have received so many emails and messages from customers describing the reaction of their child when they receive a fairy letter. They explain how excited their child is over receiving such a tiny note and the positive effect it has had on them.
Many times, these tiny pieces of paper are re-read over and over again and carefully refolded and hidden away to be kept and cherished.
For many children, it is a comfort to receive a letter from a Fairy. The thought that a fairy is watching over them whilst they sleep, reassures that they are not alone, even if Mummy and Daddy are in the other room.
So How to write fairy letters?
Here are 3 simple tips…
- Introduce yourself: “Hi, my name is …….. And I love visiting you”
- Tell about a favourite thing: “One of my most favourite things is to sit quietly and read”. Or, my favourite colour is….”
