When my children were little, I tried to think of ways I could make memories while they are young.

Little things I could do to include special moments….

Easy and inexpensive things like …..

  • Hiding a surprise treat in their lunch box

Make memories while they are young. Banana with a Smile, I Love You message on it

 

  • or having a plate of healthy snacks ready for when they got home from school,

Make memories while they are young. Strawberry Smoothie in a glass

 

or surprising them with things like a racetrack I’d made on the kitchen table out of Lego and Matchbox cars or a Cubby House I’d made over their beds with a Sheet and fairy lights.

Make Memories while they are young. Fort for kids made from a sheet

 

I tried to create special childhood memories that they could look back on fondly when they had grown.

 

Creating a fairy door play space with your child and engaging with them through it, will create beautiful childhood memories.

Make memories while they are young with an opening fairy door decorated set

 

It doesn’t need a lot of time, just simple things:

like hiding a secret fairy note in their lunchbox to encourage;

leaving a little “gift from the fairies” outside their fairy door when they wake in the morning (like a flower, a shell, a ribbon);

or surprising them after school with a small trinket they can add to their fairyland (like a fairy tea cup, a fairy book or a key)… “from the fairies”.

Fairies are shy little creatures, who are easily scared away…

So the question is, how to make a fairy feel welcome  ?

Fairies are tiny, magical beings who look like humans but are only about a few cm tall. They are very beautiful and delicate creatures, with shimmery wings, which leave a trail of sparkly fairy dust wherever they fly.

It is said that fairies have been around for thousands of years and come from a place that cannot be seen by humans. They are known to be very shy but they love to visit humans and they will eventually create a home with you when they feel welcome and safe.

They especially love children and prefer to live as near to you as they can, so they can keep watch over you through the night. That’s why fairies love to set up their fairy doors in your bedroom.

The exciting thing is that when they have moved into your home, they love to leave little hints that they have visited, they enjoy speaking to you through little notes and they often little gifts and treats to let you know you’re special!

 Create a comfortable home for your fairy!

Making your fairy feel comfortable and welcome is a sure way for her to stay.

An easy way to to do this is by decorating her fairy door with little homely touches. Including little fairy sized accessories like a cute picket fence beside her door, a set of stairs to give her a quick ‘step-up’ or a table & chairs with a tiny tea set so she can relax over a cuppa when she visits.

But her favourite item is a mailbox, so it’s easy for her to send you little notes and receive the ones you send to her.

Things like a grassy patch on the floor, with a flower and mushroom might appear one day. Then you might start noticing her little garden tools that she brings to keep her garden tidy – a broom resting on the stairs, a bucket and a watering can near her flowers, a rake on the grass and a pair of gum boots lying on the ground where she has taken them off.
