Come one, come all to the 2nd Annual Fairy Tale Ball! Adventure and excitement await children and fairy tale lovers of all ages on Friday, October 12 at 6 p.m. at the Downtown Chandler Library. Don your shiny suit of armor, sparkly ball gown or dress like your favorite fairy tale character. Please join us for an evening of fantasy and frivolity, with stories, crafts, games and entertainment.
Fairy tales play a large part in a child’s literacy development as well as providing engaging entertainment. Children learn that while bad things happen in fairy tales, most provide the ideal that in the end good will win. Anything is possible in a fairy tale, from talking animals to Fairy godmothers. When presented with a problem or challenge, children with vivid imaginations will come up with wonderfully unique ways to overcome those challenges. Additionally, fairy tales provide a fantastic place for adults to discuss right and wrong, consequences of choices and many more critical thinking skills.
Children will be able to participate in “Crafts for Kings and Queens,” learn new skills at the Royal Knight School of Jousting, attend an etiquette class and have a royal photo opportunity with a princess. Dancing and face painting are some of the other activities that will be available. Refreshments will be provided by Cup O’Karma café.
