What do you Do with a Fairy Door

The big question is, what on earth do you do with a Fairy Door. You place the fairy door on your wall, to allow fairies to come and go as they please.

Some parents use fairy doors to stimulate their children’s imaginations and prompt creative thinking, describing the fairies as creatures that use their magical powers to protect children from bad dreams, grant their wishes if they are well-behaved, and ~cough~ tooth fairy.
