I’m glad you’ve stopped by my website and brought your
imagination with you. Fairies are no longer Gaelic tricksters
of old. Thanks to Disney and Tinkerbell fairies have invaded many
facets of our lives today. Hopefully my site will provide
you with creative ways to express your fairy fantasies and
I’m a retired librarian and a grandmother to 6 grandchildren
currently 4 years old and younger. Needless to say using our
imaginations is essential when we play together. Currently fairies
are only second to princesses in the five and under crowd.
One afternoon while looking out a window my oldest
granddaughter turned to me and said “what was that?” I decided to
play along with her and said maybe it was a fairy. She looked at
me and said we needed to go outside to see if there really was a
fairy in the tree. Of course on the way out we had to grab some
cookies for the fairy and ourselves.
We approached the tree and I looked into the crook of the tree. I
told my granddaughter that I couldn’t see anything but that it
looked like a fairy was living there. We left the cookies in the tree
and began talking about fairies. She was very excited
about that idea of fairies. Then she proceeded to name her fairy.
Now I’m thinking this fairy was going to have a frilly sparkly name
of some sort, but she chose Jason for her fairy’s name.
And that’s when I decided to carry this imaginary play farther. I
ordered a solar powered fairy house that lights up at night so it
would look like Jason the Fairy was home. My granddaughter
chose the perfect site for Jason’s house and even added some
glow in the dark stones to put around his house.
Now every time I visit I add little things to Jason’s neighborhood
like a mailbox, benches, a wishing well, etc… My granddaughter
called me the first night she saw lights on in Jason’s house.
She was so excited that Jason the Fairy was at home. Also, she
keeps me up to date when things in Jason’s neighborhood get
damaged or moved around. I love that we are experiencing this
imaginary play together.
Imaginative play is important for children so they can experiment
with decision-making, practice social skills, and to
experiment with emotional roles in their lives. But imaginative
play can also help adults manage their emotions and feel
better. Who doesn’t smile when they see Tinkerbell sprinkle her
So clap your hands hard and let’s explore costumes, wings,
jewelry, gardens, books and anything your imagination wants to in
regards to fairies.
