Last year, Opti-Mom led a faery walk for kiddos (ok, and for us moms but we’ll never admit it). Fun morning and we saw lots of evidence of faeries. My daughter had the suggestion of holding a walk each season so we can find different types of evidence. Brilliant! And poof…Opti-Mom declared my daughter her little assistant, with the promise that my daughter would be “paid” with hot chocolate and cookies. She was all over that! We met on a PA Day and my daughter was so cute asking me for a binder so she can take notes (with her “secret language”) during their meeting. We met at a Tim Horton’s. Throughout the meeting, my daughter took notes and seemed very reflective whenever Opti-Mom asked her questions or for feedback.
Fast forward to 2014 and the first Faery Walk of 2014 was held on Family Day. So many little Faeries showed up, with the cutest faery wings!
After a brief welcome, Opti-Mom and my daughter led the pack:
Followed by the now traditional hugging of the trees:
And there was the feeding of the birds:
Some even landed on our little kiddos’ hands:
Then we found LOTS of evidence of faeries. Potential homes in trees:
We found some really neat leaves that the kiddos decided looked like hammocks with snow-pillows for the faeries:
We even found some mini snowmen that the kiddos decided the faeries had built for us:
One of the kids even found faery footprints!
We had a fantastic morning and can’t wait for the next faery walk!
