Play A Game – Fairy Tale Chain

Play a chain game that connects familiar fairy tales (nursery rhymes and favorite picture books can also be included).  The first player starts by naming a fairy tale.

  • Little Red Riding Hood

The second player names another fairy tale that relates to the one first named in some way or another.

  • The Three Little Pigs (both have wolves)

The third player continues the chain.

  • Hansel and Gretel (houses were damaged in this tale and in The Three Little Pigs)

Your chain links can be as creative as you are!  Have fun!
