It was a magical morning for Flat Stanley…
He was looking through a small hole, as if in a little bird house. Looking out, he could see Alexa there! She had a paintbrush in her hand. It was a fairly broad wide brush and she was painting the base board brown. Flat Stanley could hear a lot of people in the room, they were laughing and listening to what sounded like an instructor giving lessons, ideas and direction.
Through the small hole Flat Stanley could see Alexa was very serious about the task at hand. As she was picking out her seashells and putting them ever so carefully in place, Flat Stanley heard the magic words…Fairy Garden!
“When you create your fairy garden,” the instructor explained, “you’re creating magic. For it is within the fairy garden that fairies feel safe to come out and play.”
Flat Stanley wondered if he had turned into a fairy, because he definitely wanted to come out and play! So he did! He squeezed through the little peep hole while she was carefully painting the little bird house with her pink colored paintbrush.
Alexa was very surprised to see Flat Stanley come out of the fairy garden she was creating! She gave him a big hug and then let him help her place the special charms back on the house. Because you see, when he popped out, the little butterfly charm at the top of the eve and the little key below his hidaway hole fell off. So, they fixed it together.
The instructor allowed Alexa and Flat Stanley to use some of her teal paint to create a wading pool for the fairy’s to play in. She and Flat Stanley created waves with a lighter color. This was FUN!
Alexa’s sister Jaida and their Mom Shana and grandma Christa were all making their own little fairy gardens. Flat Stanley had to help Auntie Shana put her cranberry strand back in place after he swung high and wide from the top of her magical fairy garden!
After they were all finished creating their masterpieces, Flat Stanley took a nice picture of all of them, with their magical creations…where fairies reside and hide.
Next thing Flat Stanley knew he was dancing. Flat Stanley loves to dance! He was dancing with Alexa! He started Breakdancing! The music was loud the beat was thumping through his bones and he was so happy!
…and then Flat Stanley woke up.
IT WAS ALL A DREAM! A wonderful beautiful magical dream! Flat Stanley shut his eyes really tight to see if he could return to his magical dream with Alexa…but no. He was awake, hungry and needed to use the restroom.
Have you ever had a dream that you loved so much, you really hoped that closing your eyes and trying to get back to sleep would return you to the same dream?
Although he couldn’t return to the land of fairies, he was happy to tell Nana all about his magical dream over breakfast. He made Nana smile.
