All it takes are some common household items and a smidge of imagination and you can create a world of fun and fantasy! FAIRY TALES, from the "Crazy Crafts" series, gives you the opportunity to spend some quality creative time with Maggie and her raccoon pal Jackson, as they make crafts that can be used for play and storytelling. In this program, children will construct dragons, finger puppets, a chipmunk, a princess and more.
Show #1: Plop!
When a lazy dragonfly hears a loud Plop he's convinced the sky is falling. Forest creatures act out the traditional tale, with a slightly different ending. Crafts include the dragonfly, a chipmunk, a beaver and racoon.
Show #2: Princess Hannah and the Dragon
Hannah is a modern princess who would rather go exploring than sit around in the castle and wait for a prince to visit. When a prince does come to visit Hannah isn't home. She's meeting a dragon! Crafts include Princess Hannah, the prince, a fire breathing dragon, and a castle.
Show #3: Touch the Moon
Based on a traditional Japanese fairy tale, Jackson the Racoon plays the part of a spoiled prince who wants to touch the moon. All the royal investors can't help him, but a little girl has the solution. Crafts include royal inventor finger puppets, a ladder, a stairway and a rocket.
