Create your own enchanted Fairy Garden...and let the magic begin!

Create your own enchanted Fairy Garden...and let the magic begin!

It’s widely known that imaginary play supports strong, healthy, confident minds and creating their own enchanted fairy garden is an ideal way to capture their imagination!

Choose your very own handmade and hand painted FAIRY DOOR

Your Fairy Door is the gateway between our world and theirs….Attach it low on a wall, high on a shelf or in another secret place inside (or outside!) your home. Once your Fairy Door is attached, the fairies will know how to use it to come in and out!

Don't let little children try and open your Fairy Door though...only the fairies can open the door and it may scare them away if the door is not treated with care!

Start decorating your Fairy Garden!

Create an enchanted garden with our range of fairy accessories: teeny tiny windows, petite fairy furniture, grass mats with flowers and lots more

A dedicated Fairy Mail Box is the only way to get a message to the fairies and although they only come out at night, they are sometimes known to exchange notes and gifts with well behaved children. Finding their very own note or message in the morning will be a wonderful surprise when they wake up!

An ‘imaginary’ coping mechanism...

A Fairy Door is also helpful in guiding children through difficult times and growth in their lives –  learning to go without a dummy, toilet training, starting childcare or kindy, or parents who work away for long periods. Let the fairies help them by leaving special trinkets, rewards and encouraging notes as they learn to cope with changes bigger than they are!

Children need to believe that ‘good things’ really do happen – and that magic is real. A Fairy Door will not only help encourage imaginative play and creative writing, but also help to eliminate fears

Start building an enchanted world full of surprise, creativity, and most importantly -magic for your child now!

Let them be bored!

So this morning when my 5 year old daughter woke up, within minutes, she exclaimed she was bored. To which I replied;

"What do you mean, bored?"

Her response; "Well, I have nothing to do!"

I looked around me at our lounge room that has been "transformed" into what looks like a play centre/toy shop!

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE YOU CAN BE BORED!?

All those toys! When I was a little girl (here we go...) we didn't have phones full of apps/games, tablets or tv channels committed to kids programs. We had to find our own fun and be creative, use our imagination to initiate our own amusement.

This shaped my inner creativity and my fondest memories growing up!

"Making perfume" using flowers from the garden

"Making an outdoor kitchen" using sticks and pebbles, then "cooking" a meal and serving it up to my parents. I was so proud of my creations and "meals".

My brother and I would play cricket with a stick and a pine cone! For hours! It was so fun and I remember it like it was yesterday!

PLEASE, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying all kids have lost this way of entertaining themselves but I do put my hand up and say I need to encourage my children to find their own fun. Not always be reliant on digital devices.

So today I have imposed a tech free day! Let them play outside and use their imagination. Let them be bored for heaven's sake! That's when the greatest of creative play comes to life and where lifetime memories are made!

Leave a comment below about your fondest childhood memories, we would love to hear them!

Signing out now to join my kids and watch them make memories.
