Little girls believe in Unicorns. Teen girls love Unicorns. Moms adore Unicorns. And guess what – there are a lot of little boys who really like Unicorns too.
Right now, there’s a Unicorn looking over my shoulder, very curious as to what I’m doing. It’s the prettiest Unicorn in the world, shiny and glittery with its white, pink and blue hues, a flash of yellow and a gorgeous and impressive gold horn. And it feels a little lonely, on its own, so we’ve decided to find it a Unicorn friend.
Yes, that’s right. We’re going to look for another Unicorn.
But how hard is it to catch a Unicorn, you may be asking. Are Unicorns hiding in the garden, somewhere in between the daffodils. Are there Unicorns hiding in the flower pots or in the grocery cupboard? Are they under the bed, in the toy box or behind the shower curtain? Or are they under the rocks in the garden – those rocks that have turned a mixture of gold, blue and pink?
Or are Unicorns perhaps invisible, only springing to life when everyone else is asleep? Maybe only special people can see real life Unicorns. Maybe you need special powers to catch a Unicorn. Or maybe you just need to know the secret tricks for how to catch a Unicorn.
Here are some special ways to catch a Unicorn.
We’re going to share a few of our secrets with you, on how to catch a Unicorn. You may need to use a little of your Unicorn imagination and create your own Unicorn magic, because we all know, Unicorns are magical. We all have a bit of magic in us, we just need to learn how to use it.
The most important thing is to believe in Unicorns and believe that you will be able to catch a Unicorn. Once you believe in something, it’s pretty easy to make it come real. I know that, because there is a still a Unicorn looking over my shoulder.
The first thing you need to do when looking for Unicorns is to look upwards. Go outside and look up in the huge big blue open sky? Is that a Unicorn you see flying towards you? Are there a few flying Unicorns up there. Do you see flashes of gold and large twinkly Unicorn horns? I think so. And are those Unicorn wings fluttering majestically above you? Why yes, there are Unicorns in the sky!
Unicorns have the most gorgeous wings, wide and powerful, and they fly to great heights and to marvelous places. Oh my gosh, there is a Unicorn flying towards you, look, look at it, oh my gosh, isn’t it just glorious? It is indeed completely and utterly magical.
If you want a further tip, if your Unicorn hasn’t come to you yet, squeeze your eyes tight for a few seconds, conjure up a favorite Unicorn in your head, and then take another look in the sky. We know you’re going to see one. And maybe you’re even going to see two!
Unicorns are pretty big but you do get small Unicorns too. If you have a fishing net, take it outside with you. You don’t have to use a net by the way, you can also use your open arms. Dance around a little, turn and twirl, and twirl the net with you. You may just find that you catch a Unicorn while you’re dancing, with your arms open and your hands reached out.
Once you’ve caught your Unicorn, let it go. It will soon become your friend. Give it a name, talk to it, play with it and sing to it. Take good care of your Unicorn and you will find that in turn, your Unicorn takes good care of you. They do make the best friends. And they’ll do anything and everything with you.
Remember, Unicorns definitely don’t like to be kept in captivity, they enjoy their freedom as much as you do. Let them come and go, leave them to fly and gallop away. They will always return to you when they’re ready.
By the way, Unicorns quite like to dance with you! Once you’ve found a Unicorn, even if it’s an imaginary one, you’ll find what great company they are. Young girls and teens, and even their moms, can spend hours in their bedrooms playing with their Unicorns. Unicorns are creative and they are so good for the imagination. And they really are fabulous fun company. Put on a little music, close your eyes, sway around and then dance. You’ll find a Unicorn soon comes to join you.
If you’ve tried and tried to find a Unicorn but just can’t seem to find one, well, you can always make a plan. You can draw a Unicorn and you may just find it comes to life. Use a white piece of paper and/or cardboard and use whatever colors appeal to you. Unicorns are usually white with hints of blue, pink and yellow, but it’s a free world. You can make any color Unicorn you want! Be as creative and elaborate as you want to. When you draw a Unicorn be free with your pen and colors. There are no rules, draw and have fun with your Unicorn, and oooh, look, it really has come alive!
You can also make a Unicorn out of play-dough. And you can literally use anything for the horn; a matchstick, a toothpick, a glittery piece of cardboard. Unicorn horns are always glittery by the way — look at those unicorns you saw flying in the sky, they all had glitter horns didn’t they! If you don’t have play-dough you can make your own; google a play-dough recipe online. Shape the play dough using your hands, into a Unicorn. Give it a name, hold it close, and watch your Unicorn come to life!
Unicorns are magical and mythical creatures. It’s no wonder everybody loves them. Remember to always use your imagination and look for Unicorns wherever you are. Maybe your Unicorn is already with you and you’re the only one who can see her. Lucky lucky you!
