As parents, it’s easy to get caught up in our own busyness that we forget to say I love you, so we’d like to share 3 Magical Ways to Tell Your Child You Love Them.
Sometimes the constant rushing around in our day to day lives can be inadvertently interpreted by our children that they are in the way.
One of the biggest down sides to our busy lives, is that we tend to miss opportunities to tell those closest to us, how much they mean to us.
And below we’d like to share 3 magical ways to tell your child you love them. Each of these suggestions are quick, easy and meaningful and will make a huge impact in the heart of your children.
If you have a Fairy Door, this is the perfect tool to use. However, if you don’t, you can still use these magical suggestions to share your love with your children.
1.. The “fairies” can leave a “fairy note” … from you
A Fairy Door allows you the space to put into words how you feel about your child. It creates a perfect opportunity for ‘the fairies’ to share that;
- “Your mummy shared a secret with me today – she loves you very much” or
- “Thank you for helping Mummy today. You made her so happy”, or
- “Mummy thought you were so brave today”.
You can simply write a note on a tiny piece of paper and secretly leave it outside their fairy door when they go to sleep. Or pop it into their fairy mailbox for them to find when they wake up in the morning.
Or, we have a beautiful pack of 10 Rainbow Fairy Letters with sparkly rhinestone envelope seals available.
If you don’t have a fairy door, simply leave your ‘fairy note’ under their pillow, on their dressing table, in their lunch box or wherever you know they will find it.
