Happy new year! We hope 2018 brings much joy and magic to you and your little ones. January is always a quiet month for our site but for those of you who have taken the time to pop by (thanks!), we’ve collected together what we think are the most useful printables for this month. Many are old favourites but there are one or two new resources as well. Just scroll down and you’ll find them below…
January can be a good time to get the family active again after all those Christmas goodies, so these certificates might come in useful too:
Oh… and don’t forget it’s Burns Night on Jan 25th!
Finally, there’s always time for fairy messages, no matter what the time of year. Whether you’re writing your own or using some of our fairy notes and certificates, here are a few of our favourites:
For little ones who love fairies, these easy-to-make garlands are a great way to make a fairy party look magical. They also look great in bedrooms… where the fairies can watch over you all night long.
To make this decoration, you will need:
How to Make Your Summer Sky Fairy Garland:
Decide how many fairies you need for your garland, then print them by clicking the fairy pictures below. (Each one will take you to a pdf file of that fairy pendant – three per page.)
Cut around the oval cloudscapes containing the fairies, so that you can fold each one to make a double sided paper pendant. Tip: You might find it easier to fold each pendant over the string/wool before you glue the two halves together, so that you don’t have to thread it through.
Stick the two halves of each pendant together but only glue about half or two thirds of the blank side, leaving a nice wide unglued bit at the top for your string/wool to go through. This makes it much easier to rethread if you want to rearrange anything – you won’t have to fiddle about trying to force your string through a very small space! Finally, you might like to know that when we made ours, we found wool much better than string – it just seemed better at holding each fairy in place.
Hang your magical string of fairies anywhere in your home or garden. Well done! If they’ve turned out anything like ours it was worth the effort – and we hope your children enjoy them. A final tip: once the glue was dry we trimmed each oval to make sure there were no bits of white paper from the other side showing around the edges.
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.
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
Hello visitor! If you’re a regular you may have noticed we’ve been adding to our birthday printables lately, with a special focus on certificates. However, because they’re from all sorts of magical people, they’re scattered all over the site. This page is here to bring them all together so you can see what’s new.
All the birthday certificates we’ve created so far are below. It goes without saying that if your child is having a birthday, we wish him/her a truly wonderful time.
With Christmas over and the new year at the starting block, we thought we’d list a few of our favourite printables for January. Some are new and some are old favourites but our site is getting so big that we thought a little list might help make sure there’s no mid-winter magic you’ve missed.
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.
