our hearts set on heavenly treasures instead of earthly

everything you need for a fun, fantastic fairy tale
"The Quiltmaker's Gift" by Jeff Brumbeau
A quiltmaker helps a selfish king learn that giving is
the true secret to happiness. The heartwarming,
strongly moral tale supports important values, and
the detailed illustrations, featuring dozens of lovingly
rendered quilt patterns offer hours of delight.
"Falling For Rapunzel" by Leah Wilcox
The prince is hoping to fall for Rapunzel, but since
she can't quite hear what he asks for, everything but
her hair gets tossed out her window. Instead of her
curly locks, she throws her dirty socks. Instead of silky
tresses, out go lacey dresses. And you can predict the
guaranteed-to-crack-kids-up clothing she sends down
Explain to children that the word Rapunzel actually referrs to a
type of salad, and was sometimes called rampion.  Have some
Rapunzel for snack time today!
Music & Movement:

Game:  "Rapunzel, Rapunzel...Let Down Your Hair!"  Base this
game on "Red Light/Green Light" or "What's the Time, Mr.
Wolf?"  One child will be chosen to be Rapunzel, and will stand
Game:  "Rapunzel, Rapunzel...Let Down Your Hair!"  Base this
other across the room from "Rapunzel."  The children will call out
game on "Red Light/Green Light" or "What's the Time, Mr.
"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!"  At which point,
"Rapunzel" will face away from the children and say "Rescue Me!"
"Rapunzel" will face away from the children and say "Rescue Me!"
and the children will slowly "climb" up toward her.  "Rapunzel"
and the children will slowly "climb" up toward her.  "Rapunzel"
will quickly turn and face all her charmings and yell "Wait!"  The
participants then must freeze in their tracks.  When she is ready,
"Rapunzel" will then turn away and say, "Rescue Me!" again.  
Repeat until someone reaches poor Rapunzel.
Morning Circle:

Introduce today's topic by asking children what their favorite fairy tales are.  If they
need help, throw out a few suggestions for them.  Tell them the title of some things
that are often seen in fairy tales (castles, princesses, handsome princes, horses, etc. and
sometimes queens.)  Ask the children if they can guess the letter of the day after you
say, "Once upon a time, a quiet queen quickly quilted a quail-covered quilt."   Show
the children the letter "Q," and then pull out some "Q" items from a "Queen's Quilted
purse," (if you have access to anything that could pass for a quilted handbag.)  Items
could include a Question mark, a Quarter, a photo of a Quarterback, a Quail, a Quoll,
a Quill, a Quince, and a Quacking duck.
Measuring center
Most of the versions of "Rapunzel" mention that her hair was
"about 20 yards long."  Have a length of rope or twine cut to
approximately this length to show the children how long
Rapunzel's hair must have been.  Cut the rope or twine into
various other lengths, and provide yardsticks, pads of paper, and
pencils and let the children do some measuring and recording
on their own.  If they cannot make their numbers yet, encourage
them to make marks or lines for each yard of measurement.
Wig center
Provide a variety of wigs, from Halloween clown
hairdos to the barette-type hair extensions you
often see in dollar stores.  Provide brushes,
bobbie pins, barettes, etc. so the children can
experiment with various styles. Have some long
wigs or even some lengths of ribbon and show the
Cables and pulleys
Use some basic pulley systems, (you can
find these at any hardware store,) and let
the children experiment with hauling
items up and down with a pulley attached
to a bucket or pail.
Bible Verse Bracelets:
Luke 18:22b
"Sell everything you have and
give it to the poor, and you
will have treasure in heaven.
Then come and follow Me."

Explain that Jesus is making
the point that earthly treasures
are not what's really important.

of the alphabet.

Make a Quilt Square

Make a cooperative patchwork quilt to emphasize both the concepts
presented in the following Bible storytime and the letter "Q."    Show the
children some photos or actual examples of quilts.  Point out how each block
is made up of patterns of shapes and colors.  Give each child their own "quilt
block" of construction paper.  Provide scraps of fabric, tissue paper, their
blocks unique.  After each block is complete, help the children paste their
blocks beside one another on a big sheet of butcher paper, a large piece of
cardboard, or other type of backing material.   The individual blocks have
now become the class quilt.  This activity underscores the concepts of giving
and sacrifice as shown in the story, The Quiltmaker's Gift.

Emphasize that wealth is not what makes us truly
happy, but that real joy comes with giving and loving
those around us.

Watch a Video:
Obtain a short video of "Rapunzel" by the Brothers Grimm.  Let
the children watch the original tale and discuss how it is both the
same and different from the book,
Falling for Rapunzel, by Leah

Quilt Block Pattern Matching:
This is a fun File Folder game you can put together and let the
children work on during quiet activites.  Mount the pieces to a file
folder and let children match the different quilt block patters.  For
extra fun you can print each child their own set and have them
color the blocks to match.  They can leave with their own quilt

Color by Number Quilt Block:
This is an optional worksheet to hand out to children, or
something they can have as a take home activity.  Provide them
with the listed colors and help them find the correct areas of the
design to color.  For younger children, color over the list at the
bottom so that they can easily determine which number goes with
what color.

Quilt Counting:
Cut out the rectangles and layer one on top of the other in
numerical order, staple at the top to make a layer flap book.   Have
children draw pictures of their favorite fairy tale characters on each
of the flaps (draw one character on 1, two characters on 2 ect.....)
Ask the children if they've heard the story of Rapunzel.  Explain
the original storyline briefly to them.  Here's a quick refresher.

This hilarious twist on the old tale will surely get lots of giggles!
