    Step 1: Make the Triangle

    • Use the Elmer’s glue to attach 3 large popsicle sticks, forming a triangle frame
    • Set the triangle to the side and allow the glue to dry thoroughly

    *This is a step that you may want to do the day before and let them sit overnight so that the glue dries completely. While you are at it, make lots of triangle frames so that you are ready to make as many crafts as you want! (And, believe me, you are going to want to make them all and then some!)

    These easy Cinderella activities are so much more than more crafts to make. The Cinderella story is one that helps us learn that our true selves are the best selves, and gives us a reminder that magic exists. Once this fairy tale craft collection was completed I really had difficulty choosing a favorite Cinderella craft from the bunch.

    Of course, if you know the Cinderella story at all then you know that these are just a few of the characters in the tale. You can expand this Cinderella activity on your own…add a wicked step mother and the step sisters, or some mice and horses, or the king, or any number of other fairy tale characters that can be used to add to your story or put on a puppet show. Just have fun with it.
