To create Elf and Fairy Food
EYFS and KS1
What you need:
IPad or digital camera, natural materials
What you do:
Take a look at A Fairy’s World Pinterest collection, and search google image Fairy Art. Talk about the importance of looking after our ‘Fairy Folk’ and create Elf and Fairy Food. Take photographs and create a group collection of images. These might be shared on Pinterest, Picasa or Flickr and used to make digital artefacts using online tools and apps, for example:
- a slideshow using Haiku Deck on the iPad (shareable online)
- narrated instructions for recipes using PixnTell or ShowMe iPad apps
- a set of instructions using SnapGuide app (shareable online)
- a narrated tour of fairyland manipulating touchscreen puppets in PuppetPals app
Physical development as children use their fine motor skills to carefully place plates and dishes of fairy food; creative development as children imagine the types of foods fairy folk might eat; ICT as children use technology to research and record their learning; speaking and listening skills as ideas are verbalised and shared with others.
Taking it further:
Stories or films relating to fairy folk can be made and shared at a ‘Fairy Folk’ event.
