I Believe in Fairies -how to find and help them-

Fairies don’t often need our help. They are quite clever in natural disguises and creative use of found objects. Sometimes, however, they need to cross large bodies of water, such as rivers and lakes, and need a proper boat.

The best fairy boats (pictured above and below) are made of tree bark. Fill them with fairy treats such as pretty flowers, shells, stones, feathers, and any nourishment you can find for their trip (we found some berries). Place a candle in the boat, light after dark, and send it off. You’ll know that a fairy has boarded your boat when the candle goes out.

We often made fairy boats while camping on Mt. Hood in Oregon. There are loads of fairies up there. They like to live near beautiful flowers,

And bathe in mountain streams.

But their favorite place to flit around is a misty waterfall.

Of course, the best way to help fairies is to believe. Do you?
