Fairy Tales Activity Theme for Preschool

Like Nursery Rhymes, there are so many possibilities of fantastical stories of giants, queens, kings, princesses, dragons and more to include in this fairy tales preschool theme! There should be plenty to get you started on a great week of Fairy Tales fun!  This Fairy Tales Activity Theme page is filled with preschool activities and ideas for all areas of your classroom.  

You'll find more themes to help you with your planning on my preschool themes page.

Fairy Tale Preschool Theme

You do not have to focus on just ONE of the fairy tales each day! You might have Snow White being acted out in dramatic play while other children are building a bridge for the Three Billy Goats Gruff in the block area and still other children are planting beanstalks to help Jack in your science center!

Have fun! Mix and Match! That is the beauty of Fairy Tales!

Let the Fairy Tales Theme planning begin!

You can either scroll down through this page to see each of the Fairy Tales or click each link below to go to the specific Fairy Tale that you want!


Fairies in a Jar

Here is one activity that may go along with many of your themes! I saw this posted on someone's page. Patricia M (a teacher who visits our site here) has tried this and says it lasts up to 24 hours!

How To Make Fairies In A Jar

1. Cut a glow stick and shake the contents into a jar.

2. Add diamond glitter

3. Seal the top

4. Shake hard



Add cotton balls and straws to your block area. The children can build a farm for their sheep or sheep pens with blocks and then use the straws to blow their cotton ball sheep around their farm!


Provide a "glass" dress up shoe for the children to try on while acting out the story! Any shoe with a pump will do.

Add princess dresses and older "clean the cinders" type clothing as well as a boys' or men's vest and a crown for the Prince! Add a box to be decorated as a pumpkin-coach.

Hansel and Gretel



Thank you Charmaine Nick from Crestview, Florida for this idea!

Use rice cakes, peanut butter (PLEASE CHECK FOR ANY PEANUT ALLERGIES IN YOUR CLASS FIRST), bird seed and yarn

Punch hole in rice cake, tie yarn through hole. Cover rice cake with peanut butter and sprinkle with bird seed.



Make some gingerbread from a mix (or your own recipe if you have a favorite one!). Serve warm with some milk!

Jack and the Beanstalk

Fairy Tales Preschool Theme Art Activity



Provide sturdy tag board or cardboard for paper; glue; variety of beans. How tall will they make their beanstalk?!



In each bowl from the sorting activity above, tape a number inside. The children then sort that many beans into the bowls.

For more bean activities, check out the Planting Seeds Theme page

Return to Top

Little Red Riding Hood


Bring a basket (picnic basket!) to circle time filled with different types of play food. Cover the basket with a blanket. Have children, one at a time, reach into the basket to feel a piece of food to see if they can guess what Little Red brought to her Grandma!

Return to Top

Three Billy Goats Gruff


Fairy Tales Preschool Theme Troll Masks


In advance, cut eye holes into white paper plates.

Provide paint and brushes for the children to create their own crazy-faced troll mask! When dry, attach a large craft stick to the back.


Provide farm animals to the block area. They can act out the story by making bridges and use goats. The goats may help the other animals get across the bridge!


Provide blocks for the bridge and encourage the children to act out the story.



Practice getting across a bridge in different ways.

Use a jumprope or a balance beam--or blocks, paper, whatever you like! to represent a bridge.

Have the children practice different ways to get over it:

Step on it.

Jump over it.

Step over it.

Step over it walking backwards.

Ask them for ideas on how to get across the bridge!



Provide a variety of colors of play dough, sculpting tools (plastic knives, toothpicks) and have the children make their own silly troll!


Provide 3 (1 small, 1 medium and 1 large) of several different items for the children to sort.

Such as a small crayon, medium and large; small block a medium block a large block, etc.



Add small blocks, spray water bottles and goats to your sand table for some fun bridge building!

Return to Top

Three Little Pigs



Materials Needed: Paper plates, large craft sticks, googly eyes, pink paint for pig masks and brown paint for wolf masks, glue

Children decide which mask they want to make-a pig or a wolf- and paint the paper plate. When dry, glue on googly eyes and stick on back!

EXTENSION: Be sure to make 3 pig and 1 wolf mask yourself and place them in the dramatic play area!


Make houses using small milk cartons!


Make piggy banks from a 2 liter bottle. Use felt for ears and nose, buttons for eyes, pipe cleaner for tail, and corks for feet.



Serve mini-pretzel sticks for snack and make Little Pigs Houses!


Thank you Charmaine Nick from Crestview, Florida for this snack idea!

Use Graham Crackers for the brick house, Pretzel sticks for the Stick House and Shredded Wheat Squares for the Straw/Hay House!

More Snacks:Thank you, Cierra, for submitting these:

You can have pigs in a blanket or oatmeal (porridge) for snacks.


Place pig and wolf masks in your dramatic play area. Add a few boxes for houses OR simply section off 3 areas with chairs or blocks for each house!


In separate bowls, provide toothpicks, straw (from a craft store) or actual precut straws of different lengths and precut red triangles.

Provide many pieces of construction paper for the children to use the materials to make a house of straw, stick and brick!

EXTENSION: Pre draw houses for the children to work on their eye-hand coordination.

EXTENSION: Provide glue for the children to glue onto the lines of each house and stick the items on for artwork houses.


I don't remember where I found this song, but I love it!

Sung to "Three Blind Mice"

Three little pigs, three little pigs,

Each built a house, each built a house.

The wolf came by, and he huffed and puffed.

The straw and stick houses were not so tough.

Thank goodness, the brick house was strong enough

For the three little pigs!



Provide straw from an art and craft store as well as actual drinking straws of different colors and scissors. The children will enjoy cutting these items.

When everything is cut up, provide spoons and cups for measuring as well as little pig and a wolf toy to go along with the story!

Return to Top

Snow White


Fairy Tales Preschool Theme Painting with Apples


Materials needed: Apples cut in halves, red, yellow and green paint in shallow trays, paper

Make Snow White apple prints on paper after reading the story to your children. The children dip the apples into the paint and then onto the paper like stamps.

It may be easier for your children to use the apples (they get slippery!) by inserting a craft stick or fork into each apple.

Cinderella is the perfect Disney movie to use as inspiration for a Montessori-inspired Disney unit study.

Not only does it have a vibrant cultural aspect (with many cultures having their own version of the Cinderella tale), it also features Cinderella and her mice friends engaging in many practical life activities and offers many opportunities for building emotional intelligence.

Montessori-inspired Cinderella preschool learning. A great Montessori unit study for exploring the practical life activities of Cinderella and multicultural variations of her story

Funny enough, we haven’t seen the new Cinderella movie yet. The current obsession that is gripping my household is completely based on the original Disney 1950 cartoon version. I love the Rogers & Hammerstein version and have been playing the soundtrack for the kids this past week.


Cinderella-inspired Montessori activities: Cinderella gross motor balancing activitiy -- one of many as a part of a Cinderella unit study!

Gross Motor: Balancing and Walking the Line

We decided to do this Cinderella unit study after Ella spent the better part of a day walking up and down the hallway balancing plastic Ikea plates on her head and hands, just like Cinderella did while delivering breakfast to her sisters in the morning.

This is a great balancing activity, and you can add an extra challenge by having children balance the plates while attempting to walk in a straight line (set out for them with chalk or tape).


Montessori Math inspired by Disney's Cinderella, part of a series of Disney Preschool Learning Activities

Montessori Math: Gem (Spindle) Box

This is my go-to unit study substitution. I love replacing the spindle box items with something representing whatever unit study we are engaging in. For Cinderella, I used these plastic gems leftover from our Frozen tea party.


Cinderella-inspired math game as part of a Montessori Cinderella Unit Study: How Many Minutes until Midnight?

Math: How Many Minutes To Midnight?

This was a very challenging activity that I did with Ella, who has just learned how to read time. She has become very fascinated recently with “how many minutes” until she can do something, so I drew a bunch of clocks for her (using our Montessori metal insets to trace) with various times and we had to figure out how many minutes between the clock’s displayed time and midnight. (I wrote the answer on the back for her to check her work.)

You could alternatively use this awesome clock which we used during our Hickory Dickory Dock: Learn to Tell Time unit (which I’ll share soon!)


Cinderella-inspired twist to Montessori sensorial work, part of a Cinderella Unit Study

Montessori Sensorial: Knobless Cylinders

I gave a special extensions lesson with only our blue and yellow knobless cylinders — the colours I associate most with the Cinderella movie (and branding).

It was also the first time that one of the children had been taught that the knobless cylinders correspond to the knobbed cylinders, so that was a really big concept for them to explore together… until one of the yellow knobless got stuck in the wrong cylinder block. (Knowing this, I am changing my Sensorial Materials review, as they shouldn’t get stuck.)


Cinderella-inspired Mouse Craft, part of a Cinderella Unit Study using Montessori Methods

Mice Craft

I hesitated to do this mice craft, but I couldn’t figure out another Cinderella craft without a pumpkin, so I went for it — and I’m so glad that I did! I worried that it wasn’t open-ended enough, but the kids still brought their own interpretations to the craft.

Materials we used for our Mice craft:


Cinderella Craft: Fairy Godmother's Wand Craft, could also be a Frozen craft for Elsa's wand

Fairy Godmother Wand

This craft could either be an Elsa wand, or a Fairy Godmother wand. I actually set it out during our Frozen tea party, but we didn’t get to finishing them until this week.

Materials we used for our Fairy Godmother Wands:

I just set out all of the materials for the craft on our awesome plastic craft trays and let the kids decorate their wands however they wanted. They kept coming back to this craft, adding new layers and elements to their work, so as much as it may seem like a simple craft, they were really able to build upon and engage with it.


Cinderella Learning Activities: Montessori Practical Life inspired by Disney, part of a series of Disney Preschool Learning

Montessori Practical Life: Sweeping

We learned how to sweep the floor with this Montessori Practical Life Lesson. We used leftover coloured barley from our rainbow sensory bin, taped off a section of tile with washi tape, and swept!

Any chores that Cinderella did in the movie would be great to engage the children and teach them a new skill:

Montessori Practical Life glass polishing, part of a Cinderella Unit Study

Montessori Practical Life: Polishing Glass

The kids loved this complete mirror polishing set from Montessori Services, and as a special treat I set it out with our decorative glass pumpkin. (If I didn’t already own that, I would have loved to have ordered this real crystal slipper to have offered a “Glass Slipper Polishing” activity. It’s a steal!)


Cinderella Learning Activitiy: Bow-tying frame as part of a Cinderella Unit Study using Montessori Materials

Montessori Practical Life: Dressing Frames

The kids have been neglecting the dressing frames for the past few months, so I thought I’d try to renew interest by including the bow tying frame, which looks very Cinderella-inspired to me! I purchased my dressing frames, but you can also DIY them!


Lacing Like Cinderella: Cinderella unit study focusing on Montessori Practical Life aspects as part of a series of Disney Preschool Learning

Montessori Practical Life: Lacing

The mice sew Cinderella’s dress and it would be wonderful to engage the children in a long-term project of making an elaborate dress or dress sculpture. This week, we worked on our lacing cards and some of the kids had fun trying to sing the mice’s working song while doing their work. (Very hard to do!)


Cinderella Around the World: 12 Multi-cultural children's books about Cinderella, part of a Cinderella Unit Study using Montessori

Cinderella Around the World

We read several multicultural children’s book versions of the Cinderella tale throughout the week and pointed out where the countries were on our Montessori globes.


Croissant Bread Pudding

Eat Like Cinderella

Because the version the children are most familiar with is the French version, and our dear French girl was leaving this week, we went with a few French-inspired lunches that the children helped prepare. The biggest hits were a simple quiche, tuna on croissant sandwiches, and our croissant bread pudding.

We’re also going to try to make Madeline cookies or macarons this weekend (I have more hope for the Madelines working out!)

Cinderella Unit Study using Montessori practical life activities, Cinderella crafts, and multi-cultural learning

We had so much fun with our Cinderella unit study, as part of our series of Disney preschool lesson plans and activities. Which Disney movie would you like to see us explore in our next Disney unit study?

Amazing Cinderella Activities for Preschool at Home

Spread the love

It’s our third week of homeschool for my kindergartner and preschooler. Our Disney Homeschool lessons started with Ariel and Belle last week, and now we’re excited for C-C-Cinderella! Our super letter this week is C and I’m sharing lots of cinderella activities for preschool at home.

This post contains affiliate links. Please read my disclosure.

Cinderella Sensory Bin

We always start our days with tabletop time and sensory play. My girls are always SO excited to see their new bins for the week on Monday mornings. These activities keep them busy for a little bit while I make any final preparations or tend to their baby sister before her first nap.

This week’s bin includes black beans, white pumpkins from the Dollar Tree, these clear plastic shoes, mini carriages and the jewels they LOVE playing with. I also add toys that match the weekly theme from our existing toy bin. I try to use as many things from my craft or party stash without having to buy anything new.

Cinderella Books to Read

I found a book on Amazon FreeTime Unlimited called “Cinderella Stories Around the World“. This book shared four stories from different cultures that are similar to the classic Cinderella tale we all know and love. This prompted lots of cultural lessons this week, from Egypt to China. Other books we read this week include:

Cinderella Worksheets and Activities

I found lots of free Cinderella themed worksheets on Pinterest. One of my favorites is this Cinderella alphabet color by letter printable set. There are several pages so we did one per day. This gave my girls extra practice for letter recognition.

Cinderella Activities for Preschool

Montessori Cleaning Activities

In addition to undertaking our new homeschool venture, we are also in the process of selling our current home. Cinderella coincided with the week we had a photographer come to photograph our condo to list it for sale so naturally there was a lot of cleaning to do.

A quick Google search found tons of Montessori cleaning activities and games and I knew this would be a great hands-on way for my girls to have fun and practice their life skills.

Cinderella Activities for Preschool

Cinderella Carriage Balloon STEM Activity

This was my favorite activity for our Cinderella week! For our science lesson, I really wanted to make a carriage. I couldn’t find anything that resembled a carriage, but I did see a balloon powered car and thought with a few modifications we could make it work.

We learned the difference between axles, chassis, and wheels. Then, we tested out the carriage blowing the balloon up to small, medium and large sizes and swapping out the straw for larger items. With each trial, we discussed what happened. We spent several hours doing this activity. My husband even got involved insisting he could make the carriage go faster and a further distance.

Cinderella Activities for Preschool Math

For math this week, we used pearls strung on a silver pipe cleaner. I wrote numbers on foam pumpkins I had in my craft stash so we could practice number recognition. We also worked on addition and subtraction with pumpkin candy corn. Of course, the subtraction mostly came from my girls eating them.

Lastly, we introduced patterns this week. I provided lots of different beads (all from the Dollar Tree) to practice creating different patterns.

Follow along with our Disney Homeschool fun on Instagram! I hope this resource is helpful in planning your preschool activities at home. If you participate, please tag me on social media! I would love to see your family learning with us. And don’t forget to download your Disney ABC’s FREE printable coloring set.

Fairy Tales Preschool Activities, Crafts, and Printables

Free Fairy Tales Crafts, Activities, Games, and Printables

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

Castles and Crowns Activities

Block Center
Place different pictures of real castles in the block center. Encourage children to build their own castles.

Crown Jewel Match (Counting)
Cut out several crown shapes. Write different numbers on each crown. Have your children place the matching number of jewels on each crown.

Lost Jewels (Number Sense)
Cut out two crown shapes. Draw 20 circles on each crown. Write the numbers 1-5 on index cards. Place glass jewels or glass beads inside a bowl. Let children pick a number card and place the matching numbers of jewels on the crown. 

Rapunzel and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Activities

Learn to Braid (Fine Motor Skills)
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. 

Use the hair to make a Rapunzel tower craft (Printable and instructions available inside our KidsSoup Resource Library)

Dwarfs (Sequencing)
Cut out some dwarfs and let children line them up in order from smallest to largest.

Dwarf Artwork(Description and patterns available inside our KidsSoup Resource Library)

Cinderella and Fairies Activities

Glass Slipper Hide-and-Seek
Hide a special slipper or shoe 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."

Is this your shoe?  
Preparation: Just like Cinderella, your children will lose their shoes in this whole group game. Collect one of each of the children’s shoes and place them in a large bag or box so they cannot see them. 

With the children in a large circle, select one shoe at a time and describe it to the class. Start with vague descriptions so that it could be more than one child’s shoe and get more specific with each hint. Allow children to shout out guesses when they think they know whose shoe you are describing. Repeat until the whole class has both of their shoes

Make a Fairy Wand Craft
Use a star cut-out and cover with glue. Sprinkle glitter over the glue and let dry. Attach the star to a stick or twig with some ribbons.

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 to hold the magic wand.

Fairy Dance
Original Author Unknown
(Tune: 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.

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.
