Tune in to TinkerBell Fridays on Disney JuniorFriday, November 18, 2011
Yesterday, something happened that was a bit of a shocker, I had to share it on Facebook. As soon as I did, I got into trouble. My sister threatened to tell our mother on me for saying the s word. Yes, I said, snow. Shiver me timber! Looks like it's time to bunker down for the long winter months. At least we'll be sprinkled with some magic fairy dust courtesy of Disney Junior magic to help keep the fun times going.
We all know the story of Peter Pan and his Neverland adventures with Lizzy, TinkerBell and the gang. It's hard to believe that Tinkerbell first made her appearance in Peter Pan in 1904. During the month of November, Disney Junior is dedicating Fridays to TinkerBell by airing a different TinkerBell movie. They also have a TinkerBell Contest to help celebrate Disney Fairies Month so be sure to head on over to DisneyJunior.ca to find out more.
In the meantime, my children and I will be letting our imagination run wild. My kids are young enough that imaginative play comes easily to them. They love role playing and taking an ordinary everyday object and converting it into an essential prop. Lately, my daughter likes to play the role of a teacher and instruct her younger sibling. Sometimes all it takes is reading an interesting book such as the magical Stella, Fairy of the Forest. They can act like butterflies, snakes or sheep whenever they appear in the story.
