Disney’s favorite fairies came back on Tuesday October 23rd with the release of SECRET OF THE WINGS, and they 
have brought along some of their new fairy friends to meet you! Click the picture below to take the quiz & learn more about the fairies and find out which one you’re most like!! I'm most like: Vidia!

If you scored mostly F’s...
you are Vidia! (Agreed!)
Vidia is the fastest of the fast-flying fairies 
whose mean spirited attitude and selfish 
behaviour once alienated her from the other 
fairies in Pixie Hollow. But ever since their 
adventures at the fairy summer camp on the 
mainland, Vidia learned the power of friendship 
and has become closer to her fellow fairies. But 
she’s still got a whole lot of attitude!

This is a quieter time for the gardener, as most flowers have died in the frosty cold. Use this period to rid your garden entirely of weeds in preparation for springtime. This can be hard work, andit’s cold outside, so wrap up warmly and ask some of your friends to come and help you get ready for the season ahead.

Rosetta’s Top Winter Tips
·      If you want to plant something now, why not plant lilies? These bulbs can also be grown in pots. When they flower, their white petals will remind you of winter.
·       You can also plant roses during winter!
·       Remember that evergreen plant you nurtured during the spring? Now it has grown and helps make your gardenlook green, fresh and aliveeven on those damp winter days!
·       Don’t become disheartened ifnothing is growing in your little garden. Do as Rosetta does and look ahead to see what you can plant for the following spring.


Most animals will hide away in the warmth during the cold winter months, but some animals that live in particularly cold climates (far away from us), have no choice but to find other ways of keeping themselves warm.
The arctic fox, native to arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere, has very thick white fur which keeps them warm and camouflages into their surroundings. They even have small ears to minimalize heat loss!
The world’s largest land carnivores, polar bears, also live in the Arctic.  The texture of their plush white fur absorbsthe sunlight for warmth, and their paws have rough surfaces to help preventthem from slipping on the ice.
Emperor Penguins live on the opposite side of the world than polar bears—in Antarctica. They are the largest of their species, and they cleverly keep warm by huddling together very close. These penguins take turns rotating through the giant huddle so that each one gets a chance to be in the warm center.
Whatever the time of year, you will always find different kinds of wildlife, so keep your eyes peeled with the changing of the seasons, whoknows what you might spot!

Not only is this the season to be jolly, but the time to enjoy the crisp winter mornings and, if you’re lucky ... snow! Did you know that no two snowflakes are the same?
o   Snowflakes fall at an average of 3.1 miles per hour, taking their time to flow through the sky and settle gently onto the ground.
o   Ten inches of snow melts down to just one inch of water.
o   Don’t complain next time it’s too chilly. The coldest temperature ever recorded was minus 128 degrees in Antarctica in 1983! That’s even too cold for Periwinkle and her winter friends! So if you decide to go outside, make sure you remember to bundle up like Tink does in “Secret of the Wings.”
In Disney’s “Secret of the Wings,” Tinker Bell ventures to the mysterious Winter Woods where she discovers she has a sister, Periwinkle—a sparkling new winter fairy!  
Together they have plenty of fun, as Periwinkle and the other Winter Fairies show Tink all the excitement to be had in wintertime.
If you want to follow in the ‘footprints’ of this adventurous pair and find out how to have your own fun in the snow, look no further. But do remember to wear your mittens!

MAKE A SNOWFAIRY – When the snow on the ground is thick or powdery, lie flat on your back with your arms and legs drawn tightly into your body.Then move your arms in and out as if you are flapping your wings. Do the same with your legs! Stand and admire your work. Does the shape you’ve left behind look a bit like a fairy?
CATCH SNOWFLAKES ON YOUR TONGUE – Have you ever felt snow on your tongue? Wait until the snow is falling heavily, lift yourface to the sky and stick out your tongue! The frosty snow will make it tingly!
HOW TO HAVE A SNOWBALL FIGHT! – With a grown-up, scoop up a handful of clean, powdery snow and roll it into a ball no bigger than the size of a tennis ball. Then, once it’s rolled, throw it at your opponent! Remember to only do this with snow that is dusty and powdery, and never aim your snowball at anyone’s head! Make sure you wear mittens or gloves to keep your hands warm!
GO SLEDDING – With a grown-up, find a gentle slope and position your sled heading downhill. Sit down and hold tight. On the count of three push yourself off! You’ll be whizzing and whirring until you reach the bottom. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a sled, you can use a flat sheet of cardboard!  
BUILD A SNOWFAIRY – You may have built a snowman before, but have you ever built a snowfairy?

5 STARS! This movie was truly magical, I am not a big "Fairy" movie fan, but little girl Giana definitely is, when she got me to sit down and actually watch it with her, I got soooo caught up in this movie! It's fantastic!!!
I especially loved the fact that Lucy Hale, none other than Miss Aria (hot-for-teacher's Pretty Little Liar) is voicing the part of Tinkerbell's long-lost sister; Periwinkle. I don't know who loved it more, she or I!
