Fairy Finding Scavenger Hunt 

We have hidden an additional three creatures from Fizzlewit’s world in the windows of downtown St. Albert businesses. Using the clues below, can you find these hidden wee folks?   

  1. A silly fairy has gotten himself stuck in a gumball machine! Princess Flutterby needs your help to get him out! You’ll be able to find these two fairies in a shop window on Perron Street that is known for selling sweets and treats that are a great alternative to a bouquet of flowers on Valentine’s Day!  
  2. A silly Glitterkin (aka Glitter Fairy) is making a glittery mess in the window of a local gallery, known for showcasing artwork by artists from all over the world! Can you spot this shiny mess? 
  3. This Gribblin’s favourite past-time is getting lost in a good book. He's a librarian’s worst nightmare because he lives on a healthy diet of paper, most often the torn last pages of our favourite novels and stories! He’s got a plain view of the Courthouse and knows that if he doesn’t stop his antics soon, he’ll be put on trial for mischief!
