The aim of this study is to contribute with knowledge about children’s practical work and communica-tion in a technology-related problem solving activity, based on a fairy tale. More research about tech-nology in preschool is needed, especially concerning children’s knowledge in relation to the techno-logy (design) process. The study was conducted in a pre-school with two pre-school teachers. Children’s problem solving activities was documented by video recordings on four occasions. The results showed that the children worked with most parts in the technology process. The fairy tale contextualized the problem, sketches were used to communicate ideas and children’s solutions were inspired by the story as well as their experiences from everyday life. Combining the known (the fairy tale) and the unknown (the technology content) proves to be fruitful when solving a technology-related problem where imagination, knowledge and experience is required
