A Magical Sleepover with Teepee Parties

Once upon a time there were two little girls, who were desperate to have a sleepover in a tent. Their dad put up their old, saggy tent in their playroom, but it kept falling over, as it was only made of beanpoles. The younger sister lasted about ten minutes before asking if she could sleep in her own bed. The older sister lasted a little longer.

Like a lot of five and seven year olds I know, my girls are borderline obsessed with and all things magical. They claim not to believe in Father Christmas anymore (sob) but the Tooth Fairy is still totally real. My Fairy Garden kindly sent Thea a Fairy Garden for her birthday a few weeks ago. Look how excited she was when she opened it. She squealed, “I’ve always wanted one of these!” She wanted to set it up straight away, but because it had been heavily snowing, we had to  ...
