As part of our princess activities this week, we read The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch. It's the story of Elizabeth, a beautiful princess who lives in the castle and wears fancy clothes. Just before she marries Prince Ronald, a dragon destroys her castle and burns off her clothes with his fiery breath. He then kidnaps Ronald. Elizabeth tracks down the dragon and outwits him to rescue Ronald. But rather than being grateful, Ronald complains that she is wearing a dirty old paper bag and tells Elizabeth to return when she is dressed like a real princess. Needless to say, Elizabeth and Ronald do not get married!
Of course, that meant we had to make a paper bag dress to go along with it.
J chose to be the dragon, and made himself wings.
M said the paper bag was scratchy and chose to wear her "real" princess dress when they re-enacted the story all afternoon long.
I am linking this post to stART (story + art = a great start) at A Mommy's Adventures.
