Once I heard the words of a familiar mom about how her son likes to listen to fairy tales. Moreover, she writes fairy tales herself. Says: I’ve already revived everything to him down to the window. It seemed to me interesting.
A few days later I had the opportunity to write a fairy tale to my son when we were left without electricity while in the village. I didn’t want to sleep, but we were forced to get into bed, because it was going to night, but there was no light.
The tale of the dump truck
Son asked me to tell a fairy tale. And since he went to bed with a dump truck, I began to tell the tale about him. It turned out, everything is simple, and even interesting.
Once there was a dump truck in the store. He was bored and sad, as he stood on the shelf in the box, and he wanted to drive fast, turn the wheels, load cubes into his body and dump them into a huge pile. Then one day a boy stopped near him and said: Mom, let’s buy it. The dump truck was delighted, but did not file a mind, was afraid that the boy would change his mind. But the boy was already walking with the box to the cashier …
Actually, and write something you do not need. You just need to remember how a child plays with his toy or, for example, a cat. I think every mother will find out about something or someone to tell her child a fairy tale, close and clear to him.
So we gave birth to fairy tales about a bird that sat in front of a window on a mountain ash and waited for the feeding trough to appear on it, about a birch tree that was roaring with green leaves all summer, and in the autumn decided to rest and dropped all the leaves on the ground.
It turns out that a child can be told about everything in the world, one has only to give the story a fairy tale form and begin its magical-classical-lived.
Set the educational vector
It turned out to compose a fairy tale is also very convenient. When you need to teach a child something good, for example, to remove toys. After all, it is not for nothing that fairy tales are considered to be raised.
In the evening, the dump truck, tired and happy, proudly looked at the cubes, which he moved from one corner of the room to another. His little master approached him and said: Now I will put you in the garage, where you will sleep. You will meet there with other toys, and you will rest while I sleep. Tomorrow we’ll play again. And put the dump truck in the basket with toys.
After such an end, the child’s tale is not necessary – he will run to remove the toys himself.
Of course, my self-made fairy tales do not pretend to masterpiece. But, as a way of communicating with the child, all the same, let it be.
Do you write fairy tales to your children?
