One magical way to bring a fairy into your home is by making fairy sandwiches. They are delicious, a perfect snack for little kids, and so fun to make together.

When I was little, I vividly remember hunting for fairies underweath the ginormous pine in my parent’s front yard. I dreamt they would come out while I was asleep and flitter about the little gifts I’d left for them. I’ve always hoped my children would develop the same fanciful thoughts about life, and Annabelle truly embodies all this is magical in this world.

Fairy sandwiches are easy, delicious, and perfect for anyone who has a sweet tooth. Annabelle would eat 10 tiny fairy sandwiches for every day of the week if I let her. Butter and jelly is one of her favorite combinations and the sprinkles are an added bonus. You can use any kind of cookie cutter, just make sure its a shape the fairies would approve.
