In this paper we present an educational intervention that took place in kindergartens of Athens during 2016-2017. It was intended to bring children in touch with the Ancient Greek language and art in a playful way, which included Aesop's fables set to music and the contribution of ICTs. Children had the educational experience through specific visual and perceptive exercises in which they participated, came in touch and understand Aesop’s fables in Ancient Greek language, which they "sang" and played with the help of specific educational software.
