Storytelling Incursions


Festive Stories

"The Little Christmas Tree"

The children will be swept up in wonder when they listen to the story of the littlest Christmas tree in the forest, as told by the beautiful Christmas Tree Fairy or the Christmas Ballerina Doll (your choice). Alternatively, this session can have a Christian focus and feature the Nativity story as well. This is a special experience with lovely props that will delight young children and includes messages about resilience, kindness and hope, whilst celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.


"A Fairy Merry Christmas"

Personalised Christmas Fairy visits to your individual classroom makes this a very special experience. An interactive session which will see the children singing and storytelling. There will be a festive fingerplay story about Mr Jingle and Mr Jangle, two little friends who would dearly like to visit each other for Christmas. A range of props used during this session, such as rainbow scarves, bubbles and more! Depending on your setting, this session could also feature Christian festive songs.

Please note - "A Fairy Merry Christmas" session is only suitable for one class at a time

This includes a 30 minute singing and storytelling show followed by roving within the crowd to meet and greet, pose for photos, blow bubbles and make fairy wishes with the children.

They meet lots of Australian bush friends along the way and learn about the true meaning of friendship and a beautiful message about Christmas.

Musical Sessions for Littlies

Baby and Toddler Sessions
These sessions cater especially to the needs of early learning centres. Each session is specifically designed for a particular age group and run for 20-30 minutes. These experiences are filled with beautiful singing, music, dancing and storytelling.

Sing With Me Sessions or Baby Rhyme Time
These sessions are designed especially for libraries who would like me to do a presentation to parents about the "Sing With Me" Packs from Better Beginnings or a Baby Rhyme Time to complement an established program. The sessions involve a short speech to the parents and caregivers in the room before we launch into lots of lovely singing, dancing and listening to the Sing With Me feature story, and plenty of bounces, rhymes and fun for the baby sessions. 


Storytelling shows usually run for a length of 50 minutes, musical sessions for 30-45 minutes + and art sessions for 1 hour. 
My storytelling shows are best suited to children aged 3-8 years, and musical storytimes are tailored to suit younger audiences on request.
