Elfish Tricks to Conjure Up While the Kids are Asleep
Can you believe it’s December already?! The pitter-patter of reindeer hooves will be on our roofs in 4 weeks’ time! I don’t know about you, but my children are definitely being reminded that ‘Santa is watching’ and ‘the elves are listening’ in an effort to curb their mischievousness!
Talking of elves, they certainly have been busy getting plenty of stock ready in time for Christmas. At My Wee Fairy Door, we’ve got some beautiful new colour fairy doors from duck egg, to dark navy to a very festive dark red…perfect for little elves to make their way from the North Pole to your house. And no door would be complete without a mailbox to send letters to the big man himself and his hardworking little helpers!
Whether you have an Elf on the Shelf or visits from the Christmas Fairy, this is the perfect addition to your festive traditions that can help with at least some of the 24-nights of elfish tricks to conjure up while the kids are asleep! Here are a few ideas to inspire your creativity:
1. Write a letter from your Christmas fairy or Elf on the Shelf and post it in our new customisable (?) mailbox to read to your little one when they wake up. This is perfect to keep them yearning to be on Santa’s Nice List.
2. Sprinkle flour from the fairy door and make little footprints in the snow. Exclaim to your little one how the elves or fairies traipsed snow through the house all the way from the North Pole…I wonder if they would like to help Mummy clean it up!
3. Every night before bedtime, ask your children if they would like to draw a picture or write a letter to their elf or fairy to post in their mailbox. This is a lovely way to have them relax before going to sleep and creates an adorable library of their thoughts that you can treasure and share with them when they’re older.
The new fairy doors and mailboxes are available now, alongside plenty of Christmas accessories to decorate your child’s fairy doors…tiny little trees, fairy-sizes wreaths, nutcrackers and so much more! Get yours and get creative!
