Fairy Tale Storytime

Scott Bahlmann

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi

 

Book: Waking Beauty – Leah Wilcox

(This is a very fun book, if just slightly long. It still holds the kids attentions well, and the adults really appreciate it.) 


Activity: Princess and the Mattresses
(Princess and the Pea)

 

A video of my presentation. 

(A very fun puppet story, inspired by a post at The Voices Inside My Headphones. The kids love the sleepless princess and the surprises she discovers in her bed.) 

On top of all these mattresses I get to spend the night,
I toss and turn and cannot sleep, for something is not right.
Something (tickley, squishy, buzzy, scary, lumpy)  keeps me up.
These mattresses I’ll spread…

A (feather, banana peel, bee, monster, pea)! That’s no good,
get out of my bed!


(The princess then throws the item and climbs up for the next verse)

Finally everything is soft, and I can rest my head. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

 
 

Book: Paper Bag Princess – Robert Munch

(This classic is always fun to include. I worried at first it would be too wordy, but it works great!) 


Activity: Pinocchio
from Super Simple Learning

 
 

(Some of the kids were a little lackluster this go round, probably due to a younger crowd. It still worked well enough, and I like it!) 


Book: Interrupting Chicken – David Ezra Stein

(I feel like this ran a smidge long, maybe do to the younger crowd again. It's a very cute book.) 


Activity: Somethinglocks and the Three Somethings
(See the full version here

(A great way to engage the kids and build narrative skills. Lots of fun!) 


Book: The End – David LaRochelle

(Our program was running a bit long, so we ended up dropping this title. I think it is great though!) 


Activity: Streamers

(We finished by dancing with streamers)
