Write an Original Cinderella Tale

Write an Original Cinderella Tale

Create your own Cinderella story. Try not to copy one you already heard or read. Use your ideas!

Remember, Cinderella tales are transformational tales: the main character changes during the story.


  • The character is a kind-hearted and generous. How will your character show she/he is kind?
  • The character is treated unkindly by relatives. Who are your character’s relatives? What do they do to her/him?
  • The character receives help from a magical source who gives the main character some magical object. Who is the magical character in your story? What magical object does that character use?
  • Some special person understands the main character’s goodness. Who is surprised by or attracted to your main character?
  • The main character finds happiness and lives happily ever after. How does your character’s story end?
