Presented by Ambrose University:

Bring the magic of theatre into your home or classroom with our Fairy Tales & Fables Art in a Box. Each box contains a collection of classic fairy tales and fables, supplies to assemble a simple puppet theatre, templates and supplies to build character and prop shadow puppets, links to instructional videos highlighting the elements of storytelling through the expertise of university professors and professional artists, and a prize bag with prizes to encourage completion of daily activities.

Target Age Range

Fairy Tales & Fables was designed with 6-12-year-olds in mind, but we think puppet theatre and good storytelling is for everyone. Grandparents will love working with grandchildren to tell these classic tales, older siblings will captivate younger ones with the magic of shadow puppets, and parents will love that children are having fun while building literacy, memory, and imagination.

Box Contents

Art in a Box: Fairy Tales & Fables contains all of the supplies and video links needed for a minimum of five very full days of learning, but is built to continue to be used well beyond the initial five days. The supplies and activities can also be used at your own pace and can be enjoyed by more than one person; however, the prize bag only contains five prizes.
