Fairy Walk

We've just returned from a lovely holiday where  the highlight (well for me anyway!) was the Fairy Walk.
The children started at the 'fairy castle' where they decorated their own fairy wings and wands. They also had their faces painted and even Eden wanted his done too! He was so still - almost falling asleep he enjoyed it so much!

The children were also given a gingerbread man to decorate with sweets and icing - Joplin's didn't last at all long and Eden's didn't even make it to the decoration stage!

We then all set off to look for the fairies! The fairy in charge told us a lovely story about local fairies (plus a Peppa Pig one about the tooth fairy) and then lead us to the fairy houses. We stood in a circle and she asked us to close our eyes. Joplin shut his so so hard and he was actually shaking with excitement! The wonder in his eyes was just so perfect to see, as packets of fairy dust had appeared in the middle of the circle when he opened them. We have to take the dust home to scatter in our garden to encourage fairies to visit - I'm sure we can make them welcome.
