Children are enchanted by fairy tales with courageous heroes and heroines, suspenseful plots, and magical settings. There are many great fairy tales to choose from.

Fairy Movement Rhyme and Activity (Gross Motor Skills)

Choose one child to be the fairy queen (hand a magic wand to the fairy) and let the other children dance around the fairy queen in a circle. At the end let the fairy queen choose a new fairy queen with the magic wand.)

Fairy Dance
(Original Author Unknown)
Tune of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”

Let us dance and let us sing,
Dancing in a fairy ring,
We’ll be fairies on the green,
Dancing round our fairy queen.

Let us dance and let us sing,
Dancing in a fairy ring,
Faster, faster, round we go,
While our cheeks with roses glow.

Free as birds upon the wing,
Dancing in a fairy ring,
Faster, faster, round we go,
While our cheeks with roses glow.

Fairy Tales Games and Activities

Golden Egg Relay Race

Divide children into teams and give each team a large spoon and one golden egg (either plastic or Styrofoam spray painted gold). One team member at a time runs back and forth between two points while holding the egg in the spoon without dropping it. If the egg drops, the runner has to retrieve it and replace it back on the spoon before returning to running. Each team member passes the spoon with the egg to the next member of his or her team upon returning to the starting point. The first team to have all members run with the egg and return back to the starting point wins. 


Glass Slipper Hide-and-Seek

Hide a clear plastic slipper somewhere outside or in the classroom, and let children hunt for it. The child that finds it gets to hide it the next time. Give the children clues in the form of riddles to help them find the shoe, or else give them hints like ‘getting warmer” or “getting colder.”


Learn to Braid 

In the spirit of Rapunzel’s hair, let children practice braiding using thick yarn. Prepare the yarn beforehand by knotting sets of three strands together at one end. The knotted ends can be secured to a table top with strong tape so that children can pull the yarn taut as they braid the pieces together.

Heigh-Ho Song
Dowload the song Heigh-Ho

We dig dig dig dig dig dig dig in our mine the whole day through
To dig dig dig dig dig dig dig is what we really like to do
It ain't no trick to get rich quick If you dig dig dig
with a shovel or a pick In a mine! In a mine! In a mine! In a mine!
Where a million diamonds shine!

We dig dig dig dig dig dig dig from early morn till night
We dig dig dig dig dig dig dig up everything in sight
We dig up diamonds by the score
A thousand rubies, sometimes more
But we don't know what we dig 'em for
We dig dig dig a-dig dig

Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho
Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho Heigh-ho

Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho It's home from work we go (Whistle)
Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho (Chorus)

Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho (Whistle)
Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho Heigh-ho hum

Heigh-ho (until fade)
