Organising unique games for kids can be an engaging way for little ones to spend an afternoon. Games with a fairy-tale theme will please most young girls, and the possibilities of different types of games are nearly endless. Combining elements of dress-up and storytelling will entertain your young princess for hours.

Many little girls know their favourite fairy tales by heart, and these stories can act as inspiration for a fairy-tale game. Get a group of girls together and let them take turns acting out their favourite stories. The other kids can watch and try to guess which princess or fairy-tale character the performer is acting out. Whichever girl guesses correctly can have a turn acting out her own scene, continuing the game.


Dress-up is an engaging activity that can become a fairy-tale-like game itself. Place a number of fairy-tale items and accessories into a trunk, like a tiara, cape, mask, apple, wand, etc. Let girls pull items out of the trunk and come up with as many fairy-tale character costumes they can imagine. You can then have the girls dress up in their designs and put on an impromptu fashion show.

Spinner Game

Use a spinner from an old board game to create a homemade fairy-tale game. Place princess items in a bowl in the centre of a table next to the spinner. Appoint each player a colour or number found on the spinner, and when the spinner lands on her spot, let that girl choose something from the bowl. You can continue playing until each girl has created a complete fairy-tale outfit from the bowl.

Guess That Item

Place different objects associated with different fairy-tale characters on an item, and let players guess which object goes with which character. A rose can symbolise Belle from Beauty and the Beast, a carpet can go with Aladdin, and a slipper can represent Cinderella. Whoever gueses the most correct answers can win a prize, like an inexpensive tiara or magic wand.
