Crafts for "Tell a Fairy Tale Day"

Today is "Tell a Fairy Tale Day" in the United States, when children are encouraged to imagine, tell, or listen to fairy tales. These often charming stories stay with us for a lifetime, along with memories of their telling.

In addition to the storytelling itself, another way for kids to explore the magical world of fairy tales is through an associated hands-on activity, such as craft making. Enslow Publishers' Fairy Tale Adventure Crafts offers children fun, creative opportunities to make the fanciful figures found in these imaginative stories. The 32-page book's high-interest topics are likely to capture a child's interest. Author Anna Llimos' eye-catching, step-by-step, full color instructions help make the craft making process accessible for young readers. Each craft activity features inexpensive, easy-to-find items.

Fairy Tale Adventure Crafts, part of the "Fun Adventure Crafts" series, is available directly from Enslow Publishers, in a library-bound edition for $16.95; that price represents a 25% discount from Enslow's list price for this title. A paperback version is also available for $6.95. The books are also available from your preferred vendor, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.

Halloween Event Supports San Francisco Schools

Among this year's more creative school fundraising events is the "San Francisco Halloween Run and Walk for Schools." Participants can choose either a 5K and one mile option that covers a relatively flat course. It sounds like a healthy, spirited way to support local schools.

The event reminds us that Halloween is nearly a month away. Many instructors create special lesson plans, intending to use the holiday as a teaching and learning opportunity. Enslow Publishers’ new Haunted House Adventure Crafts provides hands-on activities that are especially useful for group work. The book, best suited for grades K-3, offers fun activities, clear directions, and a child-friendly look.

The 32-page title is available in paperback for $6.95; a library-bound version is also available. Walk or run to Enslow Classroom for more information about Haunted House Adventure Crafts and all the books in Enslow Publishers' "Fun Adventure Crafts" series!
