Banishing The Half Term Blues With The Irish Fairy Door Company

We’ve had such an incredible Easter, especially with the excitement of a new baby brother around so as you can imagine returning to school for Niamh was a bit of a tough one this term…

However, as the new term begins, I thought now would be the perfect time to share with you one of the girls’ new favourite activities we’ve found from The Irish Fairy Door Company.

The concept is simple- a beautiful wooden Fairy door of your choice made in Ireland and sprinkled with magic, ready for your children to place in their room and welcome their new Fairy into!

For children, this door is something exciting they can focus on and take care of. The company offers a range of lovely decor ideas available to buy on their website encouraging the children into a gateway of endless imaginative play.
For adults, this door is a lovely way to watch your children’s imagination ignite as they can write their fairy messages, leave them pictures or even little souvenirs they’ve found whilst out adventuring!

We chose this gorgeous arched Fairy door in pink (of course) with a lovely Daisy flower above the door. It comes with a magic key in a bottle, three stepping stones, the Family/Fairy Lease Agreement and a notepad for your fairy to leave messages back to your child on- which I love the idea of!

Each Fairy Door also comes with it’s own special code so after your child has decided on their fairy’s name (ours is called Twinkle Twink…), you can go online together and officially register your Fairy, making it super exciting for your child as Niamh really enjoyed helping me read out our special code and type it into the Irish Fairy Door Companies website.

We’ve found that Since Niamh has started school we need to tackle a whole new range of emotions that follow; sometimes she’s anxious about her day, worried about friendships and needs an extra cuddle or two before we drop her off. But this is why we love our Fairy door, if Niamh is feeling unsettled or even wants to share that she has moved up another group in reading (YAY Niamh!) then she can! She can write a letter to her fairy, or draw her a picture and we feel its not only helping Niamh overcome these issues but its encouraging her to share her feelings so that for Tim & I as parents can help her the best we can too.

I think especially for school age children this is a really lovely thing to have as it encourages self expression, their drawing & writing skills and also offers emotional support for them too so I would highly recommend!

Hope you all had a lovely Easter & your little ones went back to school okay!

    Beautiful photos lovely! I think this is such a fun and brilliant way for kids to not only use their imagination but also express any worries, fears or anxieties they might be experiencing as well. xx

    This is such a lovely idea! My boy was really excited to go to school, but the night before he suddenly got really nervous. It just shows they really do have all these emotions when they are so little. I love the idea of a fairy helping out! x

    I really like the idea of these. Even though I live in Ireland I actually never tried them out. Maybe when Matthew starts school in September.
