Fun for Halloween

Not long now until that spooky time of year – so we’ve collected a few of our favourite Halloween printables together below.   Some are popular every year, others are new additions.  Whatever you’re doing on the 31st of October, we hope you have a frighteningly good time!

Harvest Festival Printables

Autumn is upon us (in the UK anyway) and so is the time of harvest.  In fact, did you know that the Old English word “haerfest” actually means “autumn”?  Yes, indeed, and for those of you looking for some harvest festival printables for your children to help celebrate, we’ve assembled ours below.

Harvest Festival is celebrated on the nearest Sunday to the Harvest Moon (that’s the full moon nearest to the September equinox).  This year, the Harvest Festival Feast will fall on Sunday 24th September 2017.  However, harvest celebrations in general take place over several days, so it doesn’t really matter when you have yours.  Don’t do it after Michaelmas Day on the 29th September though, because that’s when the Harvest Festival period officially ends.  After that of course, we’re in the run up to Halloween

Of course, some of the printables above are also useful for Thanksgiving.

New Colouring Pages

Hello!  As you’ll know if you’re a regular visitor to this site, we add new printable colouring pages whenever we can.  Here are our latest offerings, many of which have been created with the upcoming season of autumn in mind.  We hope you find them useful and that if your children are heading back to school this September, they have a great term.

Easter Picks

Ah spring.  (At least if, like us, you’re in the northern hemisphere.)  The lambs, the daffodils, the bluebells, the light.  Goodness, we’ve missed the light.  And of course, Easter around the corner.  It’s always a bit of rush in our house to get everything done, unlike Christmas, which seems to be hanging around from September onwards these days.  We always feel that Easer rather jumps out from around the proverbial corner – and a mad scramble for eggs, decorations and magical Easter Bunny printables is pretty much guaranteed.  Talking of which, our top picks for this year are below…

Easter Bunny Certificates:

We’ve built up quite a few of these over the years, and you can find all of them on this page.  However, our four favourites are a follows:

Easter Bunny Letters and/or Notes

As with the certificates, we’ve created a fair few of these now but these are the ones we like the best.  Hopefully, you’ll like them too:

Easter Decorations:

From the minute the Easter Holidays start it can be great fun to gather up some children and make the house look lovely.   The spring decorations we like most are below, though it’s also worth hunting around the internet for more such things, for as much as we’d love you to stay on this site forever, there are lots of other gorgeous decorative ideas out there.

Easter Bilby Resources:

Okay, so we’re based in the UK, but we love the idea of the Easter Bilby and for any Australians out there, these are the four bilby resources to make sure you don’t miss:

 

 

Make a Miniature Tooth Fairy Letter

Miniature Tooth Fairy and matching envelope for a child's 1st ToothThere are many beautiful Tooth Fairy letters out there in the cloud and some of the loveliest ones are very small.  Fairy-sized in fact.  However, it can be rather fiddly to find a tiny pen (and perhaps your strongest reading glasses!) to write one yourself, so we thought we’d post a couple that are ready-written and free to print out.  All you’ll need to make yours is a pair of scissors a dab of glue for the tiny envelope flaps.

So far, we’ve got two letters for a general tooth pick-up and one for a first tooth.  Each comes with a matching envelope for a girl or a boy – whichever you want.  (They’re all below.)  If you’d rather print a normal-sized letter instead, you can still find a range of them on our Tooth Fairy notes page.  We’ll be tracking how busy this page is and if it proves popular, we’ll make more miniature letters in the not-to-distant future.

Choose Your Printable Miniature Letter Below:

Just click on the picture of the Tooth Fairy letter you want and you’ll be taken to a PDF file to print and/or download.  It’s all free but if you like these and want to support us, come back and see us soon, join our mailing list, or let a friend know.  Happy crafting!

Top Tip:

Fairy dust or ultra fine glitter, good for crafting, being blown out of a woman's hands.If you’re a bit of a fairy crafting fiend, dipping your tiny Tooth Fairy letter in ultra fine glitter before you put it in the envelope will make it sparkle beautifully when your child takes it out.  The glitter won’t stick unless it’s the very fine kind though, like the glitter you see people using for nail art.  The best place to find some is probably ebay.  Also, beware, it can get everywhere and if you spill it on the carpet you’ll spot the occasional sparkle for months, in spite of your best efforts to vacuum it away.  We recommend using it on a tray.

Don’t forget we also have a range of Tooth Fairy certificates you can print out – although they are human rather than fairy-sized!

Your Fairy Ideas

Hello dear visitors!  First of all a big thank you to all of you who have dropped us a line since the new year with your fairy requests and ideas.  We LOVE to hear your thoughts.  As you know, we don’t always have time to make everything we would want to, but we do try to answer everyone and create the printables that seem the most popular.

This month, the Tooth Fairy has been much in demand, so as you’ll see further down this page, we’ve done what we can.  We’ve had a couple of people asking for other magical bits and pieces too, and they’re also below.   We hope you enjoy them!

More Fairy Things

Remember that if your little one is fairy mad, we’ve got lots of other free resources too.

For example you might like our fairy bookmarks or our fairy paper dolls.  Our fairy colouring pages also remain popular, which always surprises us what with all the low-cost easily available colouring books these days!

If you have a particular fairy printable you’d like to see on this site, you can always get in touch and tell us about it.  Sometimes people use our Facebook page but we’re always happy for you to drop us a line directly on:

We can’t always create everything we’re asked to but we try to please as many people as possible, so ideas which we think would be useful to a large number of parents are likely to get priority.  A big thanks once more to all who have already got in touch. x

 

Letters to Santa and Christmas Lists

Can you feel the Christmas magic yet?  No doubt the kids can and are getting ready to write that all-important letter to Santa and Christmas list!  With this in mind, we thought we’d put together a quick post to highlight all our free letter to Santa and Christmas list templates.  So, if your child is writing his or her Christmas correspondence to that magical man at the North pole this week, perhaps these will come in handy:

Need a Reply?

If your child has written a letter and/or Christmas list, or drawn a picture for Santa, you may be looking for a reply.  Obviously, we have to keep it general, but we’ve created the following resources to help you out:

Need a Reminder?

A note from Santa asking your child to write his or her Christmas List
Please write Your Christmas List!

If the Christmas clock is ticking and your little one is dragging his or her heels about getting that Christmas List written, this little reminder from Father Christmas may just do the trick. Good luck and have a very merry Christmas – ho, ho, ho! x

Santa Claus or Father Christmas?

Many of our letters to Santa Claus are also available as letters to Father Christmas. This is because we know that people in different families and places call him by different names. In the UK, we find the preference is for “Father Christmas”, in the USA it’s “Santa”. We’re sorry that we haven’t managed to provide two versions of absolutely every resource – we’ve had a lot to do and have been short on time. However, if there is an alternative version of any of our letters, you’ll be able to see a note and a link underneath it.

4th of July Independence Day Printables

Hello Americans!  As you might know, we’re based in the UK, but we had a bit of extra time this month so we thought we’d create some Independence Day printables for you to enjoy.  Here they are,  listed below…

We hope you have fun preparing for the big day in 2016 and wish you a very happy Fourth of July. xx

 

8 New Magical Printables

Hello visitor!  If you’re a regular looking for the latest kids’ printables we’ve created, they’re listed below.

1.  Last Tooth Collection Notes

When it’s time for that very last tooth to be collected, these notes are the ones to use.  There’s a version for a boy and one for a girl – they’re lovely way to let the Tooth Fairy say goodbye and wish your child well on the path to growing up completely.

2.  Dragon Bravery Certificates

These are a bit of magic for any child who has been brave recently, for example by going to a new school, going to the dentist or achieving anything about which they were nervous.  There’s one for a boy and one for a girl.

3. Lost Tooth Found Certificates

It’s so easy to lose a tooth when it first falls out and the last thing you want is a disappointed child worrying that the Tooth Fairy won’t find it!  This certificate is a good way to set your child’s mind at ease.  There’s one you can add a name and date to and a version you can print without personalisation (just in case you’re in a rush!)

4.  Tooth Fairy Certificates for a Swallowed Tooth

You’d be surprised how often this happens.  We created these certificates because we had a number of requests from parents whose children had accidentally swallowed a baby tooth.  One is ready to personalise but if you’re in a rush and don’t want to bother, there’s also a version which doesn’t need you to add a name.  You can just print it as is and pop it straight under your little one’s pillow.

5.  Dolphin Chore Chart

6.  Cute Dragon Envelopes

These cute little dragon envelopes are ready to print and fold.

7.  Mermaid Party Invitations

Lots of fun if you’re planning an under the sea party.

8.  One Tooth Left to Lose Certificates

These certificates are a bit unusual in that they’re not to say thank you for a tooth.  Instead, they are notes to leave before your child loses his or her last tooth.  There’s one for a boy and one for a girl.  The idea is that the Tooth Fairy wants to let your child know that he or she has one tooth left and that she is looking forward to a final visit one day soon, to pick it up.  It’s a nice way to begin rounding off the visits from the Tooth Fairy, now that your little one is growing up.

The Magic of Fairies

I spy a fairy!

Ah, the magic of fairies!  Whether it’s a snow fairy flying in and out of the snowflakes on a dark winter’s night or a summer fairy sleeping the afternoon away in the shady petals of a rose, every season has these magical creatures wound up within the stories we tell.

There’s the Tooth Fairy, of course, a fairy of all seasons.  Then there’s the Dummy Fairy, who makes just one brief visit in a lifetime.  (Or at least that’s the idea… unless there’s a dummy addiction lapse!)  Beyond that, most of us have heard of Cicely Mary Barker’s Flower Fairies – here at Rooftop Post we particularly love those – and in the midst of our modern times the Birthday Fairy seems to be becoming more and more popular.

Fairies these days come in all shapes and sizes and styles too.  Some fairies are funny and some are beautiful.  Some are tubby, some are so delicate they  look as though the smallest breath of wind would blow them away.  We like them all and try to represent as many different types as we can within our resources.  So, without further ado, for those of you looking for free printables which encapsulate the magic of fairies, our favourites from this site are below.
