Fairy Tales Foods Goldilocks, The Ugly Duckling, Thumbelina, and The Little Red Hen

 For Goldilocks and the Three Bears one has to make porridge, right?! This activity is quite simple yet satisfying. Oatmeal decorated with banana slices and raisins. Done.
I also made bear toast - toast topped with spread Nutella and sliced bananas and raisins. Yummy! 
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Goldilocks-and-the-Three-Bears-Activities-1439853

Tips: while the kids slice their bananas - I give each child a third of a banana - and decide which raisins to use for the eyes and mouth, an adult can spoon the oatmeal into their bowls. (Also, quick-cooking oatmeal is quick and simple.)


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Reading The Little Red Hen? Gotta’ make bread.

Gather the materials.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Red-Hen-Activities-1215658

Mixing the ingredients in a baggie prevents spills and messes; plus, it’s so much fun to squish.
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Red-Hen-Activities-1215658

Shape the dough into a loaf.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Red-Hen-Activities-1215658

Bake.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Red-Hen-Activities-1215658

And it's ready to eat.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Red-Hen-Activities-1215658

Tip: the loaves can be made by student teams, if you need to speed up the process.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Since Thumbelina was soo tiny, we decided to do a mini food.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Thumbelina-Activities-818082

We thought these miniburgers were cute and simple to make.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Thumbelina-Activities-818082


Tip: make doubly sure to fry the patties on low to reduce grease splatter.


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Ugly Duckling Rolls were simple to make.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Ugly-Duckling-Activities-818072

Mostly flattening and shaping the dough to look duck-like.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Ugly-Duckling-Activities-818072

Tip: some duckling rolls will be prettier than others which is a perfect segue into a class discussion.

Fairy Tales Foods The Little Mermaid and The Elves and the Shoemaker

 The Little Mermaid Disney movie was THE movie back in the day. It was also more kid-friendly than the original tale - much more!

For this fairy tale, we made Pearl Cookies.
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Mermaid-Activities-818049

The kids can color their icing any color; we chose pink.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Mermaid-Activities-818049

If you look closely at the picture, you will notice the two outer cookies have a mini marshmallow pearl and the middle cookie has a white M&M pearl.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Mermaid-Activities-818049


If you need a really quick Little Mermaid food idea then fix seashell pasta sprinkled with parmesan and parsley.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Mermaid-Activities-818049


And how about crab sandwiches. Too cute of an idea to pass by.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Mermaid-Activities-818049

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Mermaid-Activities-818049

Any type of sandwich toppings work or eat the crescent rolls plain. Just as long as you put candy eyes on top of skewers or candy sticks and stick into the top of the roll. Having the crab stare at you as you eat your roll is creepy fun.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Mermaid-Activities-818049


Tip: be careful not to spill your candy eyes; they will go EVERYWHERE.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Little-Mermaid-Activities-818049



 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 The Elves and the Shoemaker sandwiches are easy to make. Make a shoe template from cardstock or cardboard and use to cut out bread for sandwiches.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Elves-and-the-Shoemaker-Activities-818148

 Place two pickle strips with a toothpick on top of your made sandwich for the sandal strap.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Elves-and-the-Shoemaker-Activities-818148


Tip: Make several shoe templates for tracing; saves wait time.

Fairy Tales Foods Snow White, Three Billy Goats Gruff, and Hansel and Gretel

Apples are healthy; well, unless they are poisoned.

I was originally going to make candy apples for Snow White but thought better of it. I opted for the marshmallow treat apples.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Snow-White-and-the-Seven-Dwarfs-Activities-818145

Make your marshmallow treats, as directed, adding red food coloring when you add the cereal. Shape into balls.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Snow-White-and-the-Seven-Dwarfs-Activities-818145

Create the stem and leaf. We used half of a candy melt and a cut candy stick painted brown with an edible pen.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Snow-White-and-the-Seven-Dwarfs-Activities-818145


https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Snow-White-and-the-Seven-Dwarfs-Activities-818145

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Snow-White-and-the-Seven-Dwarfs-Activities-818145

Simple and easy and all kids love Rice Krispie treats.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Snow-White-and-the-Seven-Dwarfs-Activities-818145

 Tip: make sure hands are greased before shaping the apples.


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Rice krispie treats are also needed for The Three Billy Goats Gruff Grass Treats.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Three-Billy-Goats-Gruff-Activities-818076

Cut the treats into squares and pipe green icing onto the top.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Three-Billy-Goats-Gruff-Activities-818076

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Three-Billy-Goats-Gruff-Activities-818076

Super simple and your kids will love eating grass.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Three-Billy-Goats-Gruff-Activities-818076


Tip: can spread green icing onto the treat if piping doesn't work.


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Everyone enjoys decorating/eating candy houses. And by using rice krispie treats, constructing the houses is easy and not as nerve racking.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Hansel-and-Gretel-Activities-818122


I've never had much luck with gingerbread houses. But these treat houses are simple and sturdy.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Hansel-and-Gretel-Activities-818122


https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Hansel-and-Gretel-Activities-818122

And decorating is always fun. Not as fun as eating the house, but still fun.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Hansel-and-Gretel-Activities-818122

Tip: simply attaching the candies to the sticky treat walls and roof will work but only temporarily. Might want to use icing as glue unless eating is imminent.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Hansel-and-Gretel-Activities-818122


**To clarify, I used graham crackers for this test run. All of my treats had mysteriously been eaten. Hmmm.

Fairy Tales Foods The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Fisherman and His Wife, The Snowman, and Cinderella

The Three Little Pigs Trail Mix is very quick and easy to make.

Just mix potato sticks (straw),

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Three-Little-Pigs-Activities-818069

pretzel sticks (sticks),

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Three-Little-Pigs-Activities-818069

and chocolate squares (bricks).

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Three-Little-Pigs-Activities-818069

DONE.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Three-Little-Pigs-Activities-818069

Tip: so simple; no tip!


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 Jack and the Beanstalk Magic Beans are probably the simplest of these fairy foods.
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Jack-and-the-Beanstalk-Activities-818128

Simply, and very carefully, split open the pea pod, scrape out the peas (which are yummy, btw), and insert jelly beans or any round candies. A simple activity but it is visually cute.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Jack-and-the-Beanstalk-Activities-818128


Tip: buy large pea pods, much easier to work with.


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 The Fisherman and His Wife Fishing Poles looked easy.
NO! Epic Pinterest fail. The licorice ropes kept breaking.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Fisherman-and-His-Wife-Activities-818029

We ended up using yarn as our fishing line. Still a cute idea.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Fisherman-and-His-Wife-Activities-818029


Tip: cut string lengths to varying sizes ahead of time to avoid empty wait time doing this project. Varying string sizes make the finished projects look better for pics.


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 Feels weird writing about snowmen when I am in the midst of a North Carolina summer – can you say hot, humid, and buggy?!

Anyway, The Snowman Snowmen are another quick and easy Fairy Tales food to make.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Snowman-Activities-818064

Skewer powdered donuts

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Snowman-Activities-818064

and decorate your snowman.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Snowman-Activities-818064
Easy-Peasy.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Snowman-Activities-818064


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Another super quick and easy fairy tale treat is Cinderella pumpkins. Grab cuties or halos (which, btw, are mandarins not tangerines - who knew?!)

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Cinderella-Activities-818113

and a bit of celery. Peel the cuties but don't separate. Then put a sprig of celery in the top to act as a stem. Whalah, a pumpkin!

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Cinderella-Activities-818113

Tip: remind kids to not pull apart the cutie once peeling is complete.


 Need a more involved Cinderella treat? Make a Cinderella carriage. You'll need a round bun or boule, whole wheat bread slices, small and large round cookie cutters, toothpicks, vegetable dip mix, and cut up vegetables.

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Cinderella-Activities-818113
Using fingers, make a well in the top of the boule (carriage).

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Cinderella-Activities-818113

Save the bread for dipping later. Use the cookie cutters to cut four small and four large circles (carriage wheels). Then attach the wheels, smaller ones on the outside, to the bottom of the carriage. Prepare the dip as directed on the pkg and dip away with some yummy veggies

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Cinderella-Activities-818113


Tip: make the dip ahead of time. It firms up in the frig which makes it easier to dip into the carriage well.
