Fairies & Elves Short Story Book in support of Sands!

All of our Pre-School Children here at Bright Beginnings Falkirk have contributed to a Fairies & Elves Short Story Book in support of Sands!

Here is one of the stories below:

“Once upon a time there was a wee fairy. The fairy saw a big pumpkin and she saw an elf inside the pumpkin. A big giant came along and the elf and the fairy were scared, but the giant was very friendly and said “can I be friends with you?” The fairy said “yes, you can be our friend” and the fairy, the elf and the giant became best friends and played with each other every day and lived happily ever after.”
