Fairy Doors

I love encouraging my children to ‘wonder’. I don’t think children dream enough. We pop them in front of an iPad, where their imaginations are controlled and try to prepare them for the real world, of adulthood.

My kids and I have spent many hours in the garden creating fairy houses, using whatever things we can find; coins, flowers, string, bolts, shells, pebbles… Occasionally, over night, the fairies leave small gifts to say ‘Thanks’. This only happens when the four children build the garden together. They all have to be there to create the magic.

I have always wanted to create a Fairy Door, plaster ones for indoors, and concrete ones for outdoors, so they can be glued to a playroom wall or an old tree.

And not just in my own home and garden, but dotted all over the place!

I have created a tiny door, and will produce them, for sale on Trade Me, at a reasonable price of $5. They will be blank tho, for the ‘Fairy’ to design themselves ; )
