Having a Fairy Magical Day

What is sweeter than little toes in fresh Spring grass?  Who needs a sensory tub when this is available?Picture 439

The past couple of days our play and learning has all been outside.  I hope you are having a “Fairy Magical Day” like we have.  This is the first time Zhana has brought dress up outside.  

Picture 464 A rustle in the wind reminds us a fairy is near.  ~Author Unknown

Picture 484 If we opened our minds to enjoyment, we might find tranquil pleasures spread about us on every side.  We might live with the angels that visit us on every sunbeam, and sit with the fairies who wait on every flower.  ~Samuel Smiles

Picture 546 [W]hen the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.  And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy.  So there ought to be one fairy for every boy or girl.  ~James Matthew Barrie, Peter Pan

Picture 713 It's easy to believe in magic when you're young.  Anything you couldn't explain was magic then.  It didn't matter if it was science or a fairy tale.  Electricity and elves were both infinitely mysterious and equally possible - elves probably more so.  ~Charles de Lint

"Just living is not enough" said the butterfly fairy, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
Hans Christian Andersen

Now, go out into the world and let the little fairy in you fly!
