Sophia’s Fairy Wishes

When Marilyn and I were little girls we absolutely believed in fairies. There was an old oak tree in Windsor Great Park where our dad told us they lived and we visited it with gifts of feathers, flowers and anything else we thought a fairy would like.  I loved Brussels sprouts because my dad said they were fairies’ cabbages. There was so much excitement in our house if a fairy ring of mushrooms appeared on the lawn over night.

I saw the idea for a jar of ‘wishes’ from Jennifer’s Jumbles blog and adapted it a bit. I painted Stickles icicles on an Ikea jar and was surprised to find they dried perfectly. The Mistletoe fairy is made by Joy of Joyous Cards, one of my favourite Ebay sellers. The jar is full of ideas for an activity for Sophia to do each day until Christmas. I have made them in two colours – one for school day activities and the other for activities more suited to weekends or holidays. I hope she likes it.
