I noticed lots of the children were knocking on our fairy door recently.
Our little door backs onto our staff kitchen and when we ‘knocked back’ it caused near hysteria! We decided to set up some fairy play to see if we could entice the fairies out of their house. You can imagine the excitement when the CCTV picked up a real fairy flying in our small world area! (Click on the picture to take you to Instagram, where I shared the video.)
There was also a letter from the fairies…
… and we found fairy dust all over the place!
This inspired the children to write lots of letters and draw pictures for the fairies…
So much fairy fun! Here are some of the other activities we enjoyed…
Mark Making in Fairy Dust
Glitter, a cotton bud and my early handwriting pattern cards. Oh so popular!…
