Fairies and Giants

We have a favorite game in the Preschool classroom called “Fairies and Giants” and this past week the Younger Kids classes wanted to try it out as well. It’s a dramatic play game using a piece by composer Edward Elgar called “The Wand of Youth, Suite No.1” the 7th movement is “Fairies and Giants”. (In class, I use a version on Spotify performed by the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields) Basically, children decide if they want to be a fairy or a giant and the music tells us when it’s our turn to take the stage. If you’d like to play it at home, you’ll need at least 2 people and your Preschooler or Younger Kid can explain it more in depth, I’m sure! Here are some pictures of us enjoying the game.
