What a beautiful day to walk in the woods searching for fairy homes.
But let me take you back in time a bit.
I first posted about discovering fairy doors in a neighbouring community.
Then we created a fairy world in our classroom.
Leading us to create our own doors to place in a wooded area nearby.
Then yesterday my husband and I took a walk in the woods.
Looking for the best places for fairy homes to reside.
We left arrows, made from sticks, and piles of pinecones marking
to look for the fairy doors.
Back to present time, this morning, the StrongStart families went
for a walk in the woods searching for their fairy doors.
Searching for piles of pinecones to show us the way.
Crossing a bridge to find the first fairy home tucked behind a tree.
The children continued searching for the doors along Fairy Lane.
When they found one they left housewarming presents.
Pinecones, leaves, glass jewels.
We had a few obstacles to tackle along the way.
But it didn’t slow us down.
We rang many door bells and knocked on many doors but no fairies were home.
When we found this door we met a slug that was just leaving the fairy home.
He told us no one was home and
pointed us on to the next door.
There are twelve fairy homes in Lerwick Woods and we decided to make
it easier to find by tying ribbon on branches close by.
Before saying goodbye to Fairy Lane the children drew pictures
and wrote stories about their favourite door.
Goodbye Fairy Lane, we’ll tell our friends to come and visit.
