International Fairy Tea Party 2015

This was our third year participating in the International Fairy Tea Party. Every year looks different from the last. This year was a very hot day and eating outside comfortably was not an option. 

We started the day by decorating a fairy house with sparkles, which can be seen here.

We shared a fairy book down in the woods, before we came up to our classroom.

I told the children that I had seen some flutters and flitters up by the school and suggested that maybe the fairies had arrived to see the new house they had created. 

When we arrived inside the school, we couldn't find any fairies, but we did find a wonderfully decorated lunch the fairies had left behind for us to say thank you.

International Fairy Tea Party 2015: Inviting the Fairies

I saw an old bird feeder for $1 at a roadside farm stand. I instantly saw a fairy house. Here was the first part of our day on September 18th, for the International Fairy Tea Party. 

Glue and Sequins = Magic

Because, as one child said, "Fairies like shiny things."
