A Round-up of Fairy Fun: Celebrating the International Fairy Tea Party

It all started with a shoe … this shoe …

the shoe that started it all

and Suzanne Axelsson (from Interaction Imagination) had an idea of INTERNATIONAL proportion.  The idea was that children of all ages from all over the world join together on the Autumnal Equinox and have an International Fairy Tea Party.  The goal is to celebrate imagination, play, and creativity.  She has challenged us to band together and make fairy homes out of old shoes and also to explore and learn about fairies.
