Stars for our Fairies
This morning several families ventured into Fairy Lane
to decorate it with the stars that we made yesterday.
It was raining a bit when we started but it didn’t slow us down.
Most of these families haven’t explored Fairy Lane before so it was
exciting for them to find the fairy doors for the first time.
As they discovered the doors they decided where to hang their stars.
The stars are not very big, as you can see by the first picture.
But we're sure the fairies will see them.
Once the trees were decorated we stopped for a snack and story.
The Three Wishes was a perfect story to hear in this forest setting.
It is about a poor woodcutter who wishes that he could have better
clothing, home and food but none of his wishes come true till the day
he finds a very big oak tree.
When he is about to cut it done a Tree Fairy appears and pleads for him
not to cut down her home.
He agrees and is granted three wishes.
But he accidentally misuses them.
The children were excited to show me the web of stars they found.
The raindrops on the leaf skeleton do look like little stars.
I hope you have a chance to visit our Fairy Lane and feel free
to bring more cherished items to share with the fairies.
