My All Signs Point to Fun post where I share printable traffic signs for kids is my most popular post and I can see why. It’s educational and it enhances play. Kids are universally interested in motoring and adding new play elements over time, like traffic signs, keeps things interesting. I’d like to share more ideas and printables that really hit that mark but until I come up with the next big thing I am going to ride on All-Signs-Point-to-Fun’s coat tails a bit longer.
Introducing Fairytale Road Signs!
After some safe, responsible play with printable traffic signs, traffic lights, and eco-friendly signs, it is time to let your imagination free with fairtale signs! Hey, you’ve earned it. These signs might even help you keep your imaginary realm in line. Before we set up these signs we had dragons landing wherever they pleased and folks trying to cross the bridge without paying the troll. Things have improved greatly thanks to a strong knight presence.
As you can see we had a lot of fun with these signs! Want to make your own set?
Here’s what you’ll need…
- Card stock
- Color printer
- Popsicle sticks
- Water bottle caps
- Glue stick
- Utility knife
- Print out the following PDF on card stock: Fairytale Signs for Kids
- Cut slots on the bottle caps (this is the hard part, PLEASE be very careful!)
- Cut out the signs (need cutting tips? check out this printable!)
- Glue signs to the popsicle sticks
- Insert popsicle stick signs into the bottle cap stands
- Set them up and take back your fairy realm!
Another thing that enhances play is reading! We have a couple fairytale collections but neither is illustrated. I would love to get an illustrated anthology but haven’t been able to find just the right one until I saw these! Click on the images below to visit Amazon and see some of the beautiful vintage illustrations…
Do you have an illustrated fairytale edition you really like? Please share!
