Fairy Tale Trivia for Kids

Fairy tales or folklore, fables, myths, and legends are told all over the world. They have been shared with children for centuries to entertain and teach. These classic tales still exist today, and many have been recreated into modern versions to continue to take children on magic carpet rides.  

Trivia games are another entertaining tool for teaching and fun. Kids love to learn and share their knowledge. 

Trivia is a great game to play with the family. Playing together helps builds family relationships and creates a fun environment. These are also excellent tools for the classroom. 

It is important to create a fun environment by making sure things don’t get too competitive. We want it to be adventurous and not a tragedy.  The goal is for everyone to have a magical time while playing and trying to guess the correct answer. One way to do that is to encourage and help each other out. 

Games like trivia can help teach children to learn that they can be little elf helpers or fairy godmothers, too, by helping someone else.
