So I decided it was time for the arrival of the Dummy Fairy.
I firstly bought Lily a little wooden box, which only cost me £1 from The Works. This little box can quite easily fit about 4 dummy's in. Then I bought her a little toy fairy that was going to be in charge of the little box.
I bought a plain box so then Lily could decorate it herself. So we got out some pink sparkly paint, and some cute butterfly stickers to put on it.
We then left it to dry over night. This morning we got up and Lily stuck down the Butterflies. We did 2 butterflies on each side and popped a few flowers on there to. It looked so pretty when it was all finished.
We have been using the dummy fairy box for over a week now and it really is working a charm.
In the morning when Lily gets up, we go to the fairy and she flies off and asks for the dummy. Lily quite happily pops it into the box and we give the fairy a kiss. I explained to her that the fairy looks after her dummy's until sleep time.
Lily will sometimes head to the box to take it out but I tell her that she has to leave it with the dummy fairy as it isn't sleep time and that if she wants it she has to go to bed. She quite happily accepts that and then goes back to playing.
When it comes to sleep time, either her nap or bedtime. We go to the fairy and say "please" and the fairy will fly off and open the box for her and Lily then takes her dummy back.
Have you ever used a fairy to help with something before?
