The sleep fairy is a cousin of the tooth fairy. She visits 3-5 year olds who are having trouble staying in bed at night.
Parents tell their child the sleep fairy checks on them during the night and if they are in their beds, will leave them a small gift under their pillows.
The sleep fairy will visit every night at first and then after a week may visit every day or every other day on an inconsistent schedule.
After a two weeks, the sleep fairy leaves a small note under the child’s pillow telling them what a wonderful job they’ve done and explains they are off to help other children!
