Fairytale Day - Kelli O'Hara

Today we’re donning our wings, grabbing our wands, and bippity boppity boop-ing our way through Fairytale Day! What better time than now to explore the world of fairytales?

Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Kelli O’Hara! Her hometown is Elk City, Oklahoma. O’Hara has been singing and acting most of her life! After earning a degree in opera from Oklahoma City University, O’Hara moved to New York City and attended acting school before launching her career on Broadway. Throughout her career, O’Hara has earned multiple awards for her talent. She has been in productions of Peter Pan, Jekyll and Hyde, and so many more! You can learn more by reading Kelli O’Hara’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.

Do you have a favorite fairytale? Share your favorite with us at info@oklahomahof.com. Kristin Chenoweth has been in Broadway productions of so many stories. And Van Heflin was active in movie tales too!


Movie Time! In honor of Kelli O’Hara, we’re going to watch Peter Pan today! You can buy and stream it now. You can also watch The Three Little Pigs cartoon!


Storytime! There are so many fairytale stories it’s hard to pick one! Goldilocks and the Three Bears is one of our favorites though. You can hear it read aloud now!


Arts & Crafts! Have you ever wished for a fairy godmother? Well this fairy dough may help you find her magic (with your grownup’s help)! You can also make your own princess or fire-breathing dragon!


Make & Eat it! Food can and should be part of our fairytales! We think we deserve a treat since it’s a fairytale, right? These awesome looking Nutella Krispie Treats look perfect for our Fairytale Day! Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman, has all sorts of recipes to fit our day!

Listen to it! Beauty and the Beast is one of our favorites! We think the soundtrack from the Disney film is just right for today.
