How to wish?

  • Blow on a dandelion puff and make a wish. Then say:

“Dandelion, puffs away,

Make my wish come true some day.”

          Once all the “whiskers” are gone, your wish will come true.


Fairy Porch

  • Make a wish when you see three birds on a telephone wire. Watch out they are not a murder of crows. The rhyme below is the one that pertains to crows:

One for sorrow,

Two for joy,

Three for a girl,

Four for a boy,

Five for silver,

Six for gold,

Seven for a secret,

Never to be told.

Eight for a wish,

Nine for a kiss. ..


  • Make a wish on the first star you see at night.

Star light star bright,
The first star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.


  • Make a wish with another person on a chicken’s wishbone. Each takes an end and pulls until it breaks. The person with the largest piece of bone gets the “lucky break” and their wish. My baby brother always cheated at this.

Fairy Cottage

  • Find a penny, wear it in your left shoe, and your wish will come true. This is getting harder and harder to do as country after country stops producing pennies!


  • Hold your breath and make a wish while crossing a short straight bridge. Careful there are no trolls underneath.

Fairies in the Garden

  • Wishes made on Midsummer’s Eve (June 19, 2016) are most likely to come true.

What you wish for is up to you!
