Fancy Nancy

Fancy Nancy : poet extraordinaire!

Fancy Nancy: Aspiring Artist

Ooh la la! It’s beauty day

Are you thinking beautiful thoughts?  It’s all about the word “Fancy”!   Use lots of fancy words, play Fancy Nancy bingo, and make lots of fancy arts and crafts.

Interact, read, play and dance with Fancy Nancy apps!

My two favorite Fancy Nancy apps to use are Fancy Nancy Dress Up and Fancy Nancy Ballet School.  Both apps are perfect for displaying on a large screen or wall.

Fancy Nancy Dress Up:  Create where you want to go! The beach?   Dinosaurs?  Yes, Fancy Nancy loves being fancy everywhere.   It’s fun to add a good roar and stomp while being fancy.

To create and add dinosaurs to your background, use DK Dinosaur Stickers app.

Fancy Nancy Ballet School

It’s time to dance!  Learn new dance steps and dance with Fancy Nancy.  If you have a large group, have everyone dance together in the room and then rotate in a new person every dance or pick one person to dance along directly on the app.
