(Until we left the cardboard houses out in the rain anyway. Oops!)
The fairy house that I’m writing about today is special too, but in a different way. (Make sure to read to the end to see who came up with the idea for these!)
It’s a small wooden house that came in a kit with paints, fairy dust, and a storybook.
We started with the book…
The Dreamland Fairy House Kit and Book
The fairies in the book liked to tell stories among themselves at nighttime but one night they ran out of stories.
They didn’t know what to do until one fairy had the brilliant idea of listening in to children’s dreams as a way to gather new stories to share.
Daphne is completely captivated by this idea!
And in the Dreamland Fairy box, along with the book, is a small wooden house, some paints, a paintbrush, and some fairy dust.
The house is just the right size to set next to a bed and provide a safe place for fairies to listen in to children’s dreams!
Daphne painted the fairy house (with Maia’s help for parts of it).
Then we set it up on top of the small dresser between their two beds (they share a room) with the rooftop “door” open so the fairies could get in.
Daphne sprinkled some of the fairy dust before bedtime to attract the fairies.
And every morning she comments on her dreams and whether or not the fairies have come to listen in so they’ll have stories to tell.
This Dreamland Fairy House Kit was sent to me by a reader whose 6 year old daughter and her friend came up with the story and idea.
Ami, one of the mothers, sent me an e-mail about it (excerpted here) ::
If you want to buy one of these Dreamland Fairy house kits for a kiddo in your life, you can find them on their website as well as in some toy stores and catalogs (I’ve seen it in Magic Cabin, for example) and they come in a really nice box (good for gifting).
