Imaginative Play Scene: A Fairy Door

imaginative play scene -- the fairy door

I came across The Fairy Door Store  on Facebook and I fell instantly in love with the product.  The fairy doors are all kinds of magical cuteness, sure to stimulate imaginative play for kids.  I emailed Sarah from to ask her if she would work with me to do a play scene for my blog, and so here we are.

Imaginative Play Scene


Fairy Door


Decorative stones

Fairy or small doll

Ribbon or streamers (optional)

To set up this this play scene, I placed a few shells and decorative stones at the base of a tree and used blu-tack (glue to make it permanent) the fairy door to the trunk.  I also tied a few ribbons on the tree branches above the door, and it looks truly magical! I wish I could describe the gasp of delight from my daughter when she saw this.

    I have three boys who haven’t shown any interest in fairies. But I do have a beautiful friend with twin girls who would adore a fairy door. I would name their fairy ‘Columbine’….she wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers and has gentle green wings like a butterfly….and I would enjoy playing fairies with these gorgeous girls – a bit of a change to the sword wielding heroes in my boy-dominated household! :o)

    Ooh how lovely! My little girl Alice would be fascinated to find a fairy door in the garden. We would call the fairy Pansy because we love the flower fairies and there are pansys at Nana’s house.

    I don’t think we need one, I once accidently mentioned pixies at the bottom of the garden to Nat and he refused to go into the backyard for months. This would have terrified the boy.

    My 3 year old daughter loves fairies & her fairy name would have to be Feeorin it’s – Austrian meaning a small green fairy who loves dancing and music. This describes her to a tee as she loves music & dancing & one of her favourite colours is green (the other being purple)

    My daughter’s fairy name would be ‘Feather Catfly’ – a fairy that watches over small animals, she is only seen at midday under a quiet, cloudless sky, she wears pale blue like the sky and has multicoloured wings like a butterfly. My daughter would adore one of these doors for her fairy friend.

    Every fairy in our house is called Ruby. I have no idea why! My daughers (neither of whom is called Ruby) fixated on this name and now any new doll or imaginary play friend bears that name. And strangely, the girls don’t even find it confusing – when one of them mentions ‘Ruby’ the other always seems to know which toy she means!

    I love these Fairy Doors. So cute!
    A fairy in our house might be called Rose. We made Fairy houses out of Milk jugs, cut holes for doors and painted them, but we think it might have been too drafty and cold, as the Fairy’s didn’t stay. So having a wonderful Fairy Door would be magical! ๐Ÿ™‚

    As a child I had a fairy friend who would leave me tiny little handwritten notes (which looked remarkably like my mums handwriting). I still have all these notes and would love to continue this magic for my children. Her name was Snowdrop and her friend Larkspur. I always wanted to be a fairy named Snowdrop ๐Ÿ™‚ (still do!)

    Naturally I had to ask for assistance in choosing the perfect Fairy Name. My daughter suggested Emily (after herself naturally!) and my son suggested Underpants Molly. I’m rather partial to the latter…

    We’d call our delightful little fairy “Tinkerbell Lilly”!
