Fairy Time

Fairy Time

Eli and Ava have fairies that visit them at night and leave goodies, notes, tricks around the house, etc. This all started with 2 wooden fairy doors I bought on a whim at JoAnn’s a couple years ago and Ava found in my craft room during a quarantine clean out in the spring.

I’m really doubtful they will be returning to school to finish out Kindergarten and Preschool, so I’m giving it my best shot to keep them on track learning what they need to. Eli’s teacher sent home…
