Last weekend at my local library, I ran a Beauty and the Beast craft session. With the popularity of the live action movie, the session was rather well attended.
I was surprised that a mix of both boys and girls turned up as I expected the session to attract only girls. The most popular craft with the boys was creating a Cogsworth figure with moving clock hands and a swinging pendulum. The girls preferred making the enchanted rose in its glass casing. I also offered the opportunity to decorate plastic goblets, make bows, create beast masks and make rose bookmarks.
It was very successful and the children really enjoyed it. I have now planned a Snow White themed craft session to continue with the Disney princess theme.
