Queens are like den mothers; they're the leaders of each clan. Clans have a
minimum of six members; they can be larger, but no smaller than six people.
Queens must be an adult 18 years or older and related to one of the girls in
the clan such as a parent, older sister, aunt, grandmother, etc.
Fairy Queens host the pixie parties where the clan
member fairies gather to share adventures such as field trips to an
arboretum to collect leaves, an aviary to collect feathers, or to the beach
to collect seashells. Pixie parties are also held in one of the clan fairy's
homes or at the Fairy Queen's palace where the fairy members learn how to
make pixie pockets, pouches, fairy dust, and other fun fairy treasures.
Fairy Queens also distribute the higher-level
prizes to the clan fairies when they have collected enough charms (and pixie
pockets) to earn these rewards. They also plan and host the clan ceremonies,
which occur when clan members graduate to the higher levels (like graduation
from high school or college) and handle any/all correspondence that
requires a physical location (address, phone number, etc.) for prizes that
must be mailed.
For example: Beth and her
younger sister Suzy want to join a fairy clan, but there aren't any
available close to their home. So they ask their mother Cassandra if she'll
be their Fairy Queen so they can start their own clan. She says yes, so the
girls ask three friends each to join their clan. Their six friends plus Beth
and Suzy equal eight, so they now have enough girls to start their own clan.
The first thing Beth and
Suzy must do is have a pixie party so they can apply for their clan name and
their fairy names. Since they need 12 points each to earn their fairy names,
each girl must either bring two or three charms with them to this first
party or plan a field trip to collect these first two charms (see
Charms page for lists). And, since the charms are
powerless without the pixie pockets and the fairy dust, this step comes
next. See chart below for suggestions.
Step 1: Gather together
at least six girls plus a den mother / Fairy Queen to form a clan.
Step 2: Pixie Party One -
The Fairy Queen organizes the parties and locations. Meet at the Fairy
Queen's palace so she can explain the rules (from this website), then take a
field trip to the beach, the zoo, an aviary, or even a park to collect two
or three charms each (enough to equal 12 points per person).
Step 3: Pixie Party Two - All members meet again to
make their pixie pockets and fairy dust. Be sure to bring your collected
charms. * The Fairy Queen prints out a few patterns (from this site) for the
* Each member must bring one yard of fabric, a needle,
and some matching thread (embroidery thread works best).
* Trace the patterns onto your fabric, then cut out
the pockets (you need one pocket for each charm). You can embellish them
later with beads, jewels, lace, buttons, and other trinkets, if you want to.
* The Fairy Queen will show you how to sew the two
* The Fairy Queen supplies the fairy dust for this
first party (see recipes on Fairy Dust page).
* Once everyone is finished, place your charms with a
pinch of fairy dust into each pixie pocket, then hold onto them until the
next party (or continue on to step 4).
Step 4: Pixie Party Three (or continued from above)
* Make a list
of each girl's full name (first, middle, and last).
* Be sure to include second
middle names if anyone has two middle names (for example: Laura Lynn Ashley
* Beside each name, write
down each girl's birthdate (month, day, year), time of birth including am or
pm, and the charms plus the peak values
they are submitting for their fairy names. For example:
Ellis - October 12, 2001, 11:03 am - white feather = 6; blue feather = 6;
total = 12
* We use a formula to convert
your birth name into your FIRST fairy name. We use your birthdate to assign
your fairy MIDDLE name. And then your clan name becomes your fairy LAST
name. For example:
a. If your name
is Laura Lynn Ashley Hill, your Fairy FIRST name would be Willow.
b. If your birthdate is May 21, 2001,
9:33 pm, your fairy element is Earth, so your fairy MIDDLE name
would be Damara. Not everyone with this birthdate has a middle name
c. Your Fairy
LAST name is based on the clan name we assign to your group. So, if we
assign your group the clan name of Torridon (which means the hills of Wester
Ross in Scotland), your FULL FAIRY NAME would be: Willow Damara Torridon,
and all of the members in your clan would have the same fairy LAST name of
* Next, take a photograph (with
your digital camera or your phone) of the group AND one of each individual
girl standing (or sitting) behind
a table (or on the floor) with your pixie pockets and your charms. Place
each charm on top of each pixie pocket with each girl standing (or sitting)
behind her charms and pockets, then shoot the photos.
* Next, the Fairy Queen emails the
list of girl's names, birthdates, and photos that show everyone
with their charms and pixie pockets to our Fairy Druid Queen:
Step Five: Pixie Party Four
* Our Druid Queen will email back
with your clan names and all of your members' fairy names in three to five
* Once the Fairy Queen receives this information, she
can then plan another party.
* After you get your fairy names, ask your Fairy Queen
to order the Fairy Magic Workbooks for everyone in the clan so you can track
your charms and pockets in your workbook. This is the only product clan
members are required to purchase. Order books from Amazon.com or from this
* Once your clan is
established, and you have your record books, you're ready to play the game of Fairy Magic.
Step Six: Have fun. Take lots of field trips, collect
lots of charms, and learn lots of stuff about the charms you collect. Keep
some of your collection for fairy magic, then submit the rest of your
collection for prizes and awards.
