Getting excited about the International Fairy Tea Party

So it's September
Not just the month where I turn another year older... but also the month where we will celebrate the first International Fairy Tea Party...

The last few weeks at Filosofiska Preschool here in Stockholm we have been exploring fairies from a philosphical perspective and have been learning more about what the CHILDREN think fairies are and where the come from...

and we have also been getting creative in a fairy fashion - making a magic forest, a huge fairy background and fairy wands...
there has been lots of fairy role-play indoors and outdoors and a fairy door has even popped up in the preschool.

In three preschool weeks (in 19 sleeps) we will be having our fairy tea party at the same time as others around the world... already people from Iceland, UK, New Zealand, Canada and Australia have signed up and acknowledge where they are from and that they will be joining in...

if you plan to join in - click on this link and write where you come from, it will make it even more exciting for the children participating to know where all the other children come from too...
come and join the International Fairy Tea Party
