Adventures in Fairy Tales

Adventures in Fairy Tales was a school age event I hosted in September 2014. Sadly, no one showed up for the event, but I'm hoping to try it again at another branch library.

I had activities planned in several different areas: reading, writing, playing games, storytelling, etc. I was going to pick and choose from the following activities based on the age and personality of the kids who showed up.
