Fairies, Fairies, and More Fairies!

My four year old just LOVES fairies! Pretending that she's a fairy. Playing with fairies. And reading books about fairies. Therefore, it didn't take her very long to notice that there is one whole page in my Usborne catalog dedicated just to fairies. Here are a few of her favorite things that she has acquired since I started selling Usborne.



50 Fairy Things to Make and Do
She packs this in her Preschool book bag and takes it out in the car to discuss all of the ideas she likes with me.






Fairy Jigsaw Puzzle (50 pcs)

My husband even helped us build this one! It comes in a very cute gift box and is sparkly to boot. Just perfect!



Sticker Dolly Dressing Fairies

Usborne has quite the variety of sticker books. Both of my daughters love to dress the fairies in this book. The pictures and stickers are very detailed and colorful.

1. Build a fairy house. I think that I first came across this idea in Family Fun magazine. One day when were were taking a walk. I stopped by some sticks and stones and started building. "What are you doing?" my girls asked.

"Oh, just building a house for the wood fairies."

My six year old looked at me like she was thinking "Mom's really lost it, now." But I got a different reaction from my four year old- pure joy. She started using her own imagination and building the fairies' house with me.

2. Have your child pretend or dress up like a fairy and act out a short scene.

3. Ask a few creative thinking questions.

-Do you believe in fairies? Why or Why not?

-If you had a fairy Godmother, what would you wish for?

-What do you think the tooth fairy does with all of the teeth that she gathers?

Happy Reading,


Jen

Fairies are the best :) and oh yes I believe in Fairies. Their exsistance is spun in our imaginations and made real by our willingness to be children our selves.

I'll stop by later and leave the name of a favorite farie book of mine (can't think of the exact title right now, but it is a fabulous book.)


Thanks for sharing the titles and ideas :)
