A Weekend Adventure at Camp Firefly
It was a lovely spring morning in Erica’s Fairy Forest, Fairy Layla Cakes was sitting in fairy school gazing out the window at the side of her class room dreaming of another place she would rather be “Camp Firefly”.
Many humans might know this place as “Hidden Valley “, A Place that both humans and fairies go camping from time to time.
Tick Tock Tick Tock goes the tall big grandfairy clock.
The countdown had begun as the fairies waited patiently for Fairy Luna ring the fairy school bell!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1
The sound of the fairy school bell echoed through the whole school.
“Woohoo Schools out” Screamed Fairy Pip with excitement
“Bring on the S ‘mores” said Fairy Fi Fi
“To the tree of life, let’s go” said Fairy Cupid
Fairy Luna had never seen her class jump up and fly out the door so fast in her years of teaching!
All the fairies of the forest met Fairy Princess Erica and Fairy Stick n Things at the tree of life were they went through the Camping trip itinerary which included crazy golf, kayaking, paddle boating, roasting marshmallows on an open fire and of course they would be starting with the “ Fairy Fast Hitch a Tent ” competition .
The fairies had also heard that some of their human friends were also going to the same place that very weekend and they wondered if they would see them.
With that Fairy Force 1 landed in the centre of the forest, the fairies jumped on board and off they went.
“Are we there yet, are we there yet “said Fairy Layla Cakes
It wasn’t before long that the fairies had arrived at Camp Firefly and first up on the itinerary was the Fairy Hitch a Tent competition.
“Ok Fairies you will be split into two teams by Fairy Sticks n things and the team that puts their tent up the fastest will be declared the winning team” said Princess Erica
With that Fairy Sticks n things picked the teams and it was time to get started!
Team Marshmallow will be made up of Fairies Raymond, Silver mist, Doddy and Lola , Sunny and Adam
Team Firefly will be made up of Fairies Ruby, Pip, Fi Fi, Libby, and Layla Cakes and Skylar
5, 4 , 3, 2, 1 and they were off!
Team Firefly and Team Marshmallow got off to a super start and instead of working against each other, they worked together as a team and within 15 minutes their tents were up, decorated with tiny multi-coloured fairy lights and both teams were already munching on toasted marshmallows.
“Well done fairies, you are very smart, clever and super kind to one another and you have all past this weekend’s camping test of kindness” said Fairy Sticks n things
To celebrate the fairies enjoyed an evening of singing and dancing around their camp fire, eating some of their fairy favourites - cheerio’s, raisins, blue berry juice, sugar plum candyfloss, toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate.
The next morning the fairies were up bright and early to enjoy some water activities.
They made their way through Firefly Forest to the river bank which was packed with fairies and humans having fun in the sun.
The fairies were just about to jump on their paddle boats when Fairies Ruby, Pip, Fi Fi and Libby spotted their human families they live with.
“I can’t believe my fairy eyes, Look Ruby its Katie and Mia out on the lake, they are doing paddle boating too “said fairy Pip. “ Wow they are doing really well, look at them go “said fairy Ruby
Then Fi Fi spotted Sliver and Max too. All the fairies were so happy to Mia and little brother Theo, Katie and little brother Alex, Layla, Max and Sliver having so much fun. Enjoying the paddle boats, eating marshmallows and fishing was also a big hit.
After all that excitement Fairy Fi Fi couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw her human Mighty Max on a Kayak all by himself, she flew straight over and put a fairy protection shield on him as she was a little worried that he might fall off.
Fairies Ruby, Pip, Fi Fi, Libby, and Layla Cakes and Skylar had a great time on the blue paddle boats while Fairies Raymond, Silver mist, Doddy and Lola, Sunny and Adam enjoy Kayaking.
Later on that day when sunny the sun had gone home for a well-deserved rest , the fairies had great fun playing hide n seek in Firefly Forest with only little fairy head lamps , the man in the moon and the stars in the sky to guide them .
Fairy Skylar was by far the best at hide n seek, she is a fairy brownie leader you see and has been to Camp Fire Fly a few times, so little did the other fairies know that she knew every inch of the forest and of all the best good hiding places.
By the end of the evening the fairy friends were super tired and off to bed they went, even the load snoring sounds coming from Fairies Raymond and Doddy didn’t wake them.
The next morning the fairies ended their camping trip with a quick game of fairy crazy golf, jumped back on board Fairy Force 1 and off they went back to Erica’s Fairy Forest to get the cake baked and celebrations started for Mickey Mouse’s 90th Birthday.
