The number of times I've heard that at 8 o'clock at night. A Tiddler who has been reading Grimms Fairy Tales with delight at 5 o'clock, is now faced with the big dark bedroom and suddenly those stories seem a bit too real.
So I came up with an idea. I welcolmed Peapod into our family. Now - Peapod is only little, but he can be very fierce if he sees something scary, and will easily chase it away. So if you hang him on your bedroom door or somewhere where he can see you and the whole room, he can look after you all night so you can snuggle down and get some well earned rest, all ready for another bout of Grimms Fairy Tales tomorrow.
If you want to make a Door Dragon, download and print the file below. I've made it so it makes two (you can either print it double sided or print two and stick them back to back and then cut them out. I've found that either laminating them or covering them with sticky back book cover plastic helps them stand the strain of room guarding a little better)
I hope this works with your Tiddlers as well as it did with mine and you get a few evenings peace and quiet. :0)
If you do download Peapod, can you leave a comment and let me know if he is keeping guard in your house. I like to keep an eye on him and make sure he's doing his job properly.
