In Disney's Beauty and the Beast, the rose and the mirror are objects that are both magical and symbolic. "Supernatural" or symbolic objects are often a component of fairy tales and other stories.
Read one of the stories or books listed below, or another book or story that includes an enchanted object.
Now make the enchanted object from the story they have chosen. This can be done with papier mâché, clay, paint, pencil, crayons, or even as a collage with other objects, scenes, and characters from the story.
Using the examples listed below as a jumping-off point, brainstorm about an enchanted object that you'd like to have in your own life. Now draw or paint and write about it. What would it look like? What would its powers be? Why would you like to have access to this object?
