What do you do when your child hates sports day?

It's a cornerstone event in any school year. A day that many teachers and children look forward to. Everyone is talking about it. Well... almost everyone. Some poor things absolutely dread the day.

So what do you do when your child hates sports day?

In this little blog, I'm going to share my experience and give you my magic spell to enchant a Sports Day refuser.

Here's the honest truth, my Fairy Friend...

Sports Day really makes me very sad.

As a child I dreaded school sports day to the point I made myself ill every time it came around.

I wasn't terribly good at sports. My parents' and teachers' "good-natured ribbing", and the constant disappointment in myself for failing to achieve, rubbed my tender young heart until it was sore.

I hated Sports Day so much as a child, years later I couldn't watch my children participate in theirs

When my own children started to participate in sports days, all those old feelings flooded back. To the point where I found myself almost unable to attend and support them.

So, as I created this Summer's magical adventure for our Secret Fairy Circle, I found myself with something of a dilemma: How could I encourage others to enjoy Sports Day, when I feared it so much myself?

But if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change

Then I got to thinking - what would a Fairyland Sports Day look like? What different spin would they put on the day? And how would they reward the competitors?

As I created this magical adventure to delight my little girls, I found my old anxieties started to fall away.

Imagine a Sports Day where fun was more important than winning

I imagined a Sports Day where winning was the very last thing on the minds of the competitors. Where the very competitors themselves loved only to play.

"Sport" became "games". And of course, games are simply about fun.

Picture an event full of hilarious chaos

I could picture the Fair Folk excitedly giggling. Stretching their wings and hopping up and down on the spot to warm up.

I could see them dropping their eggs for the egg and spoon race, before they even got to the starting line.

I could imagine them tangled up in sack-race sacks, and more interested in the refreshment stall than the podium.

When your child hates Sports Day, only a Fairy Friend can make it better

Oftentimes, a little help from the Fairies can go an awful long way.
