Crafts from Your Favorite Fairy Tales
From the Series Storytime Crafts
The make-believe world of fairy tales comes to life with just some scissors and paste and a few household items. For a dramatic accompaniment to the retelling of your favorite tale, make the ugly duckling that changes into a swan, the Beast that turns back into a Prince, or even the Sleeping Beauty puppet that opens her eyes for the first time in a hundred years. You can make up a charming bed for the seven dwarfs from an egg carton or a beautiful gingerbread house from an ordinary lunchbag. You can do a model of Rapunzel letting down her hair or of Jack climbing up the beanstalk. Illustrated step-by-step instructions will provide hours and hours of rewarding creative activity.
