Simple Ideas

Fairy Letters

The most popular thing children love about their fairy door, is the sending and receiving fairy letters.

Leaving a fairy note is often the easiest and most inexpensive way to use a fairy door. Read our How to Write Fairy Letters for lots of ideas.

We also have available pretty packs of coloured fairy letters (Pink, Purple, Blue and Rainbow). And pre-printed packs of fairy letters, to help when you don’t know what to write.

Rewarding Positive Behaviour

A Fairy Door is a perfect way to encourage your child. If you notice your child does something good, or acts in a positive way; leave an encouraging fairy note or a little treat outside their fairy door to acknowledge this.

For example, the fairies could leave a note that says:

  • “We saw how kind you were to your friend today”
  • “You used lovely manners today”
  • “We saw that you cleaned your teeth without being asked last night”
  • “You packed your toys up beautifully today”
  • “You ate all your vegetables, we are so proud of you”

Counting Sleeps

If your child is looking forward to something, like a holiday, an outing, a birthday, etc a fairy door is a perfect way to count sleeps to this occasion.

For example, leave fairy notes in their fairy mailbox which count down sleeps. And then on the day before with 1 sleep left, you could leave a special treat outside their fairy door – that relates to the event.
