Through them, they utilize common to mankind moral values, good friendship, care for others. This series found their place in different areas of the state educational requirements in Bulgaria for the education of children of preschool age. They are very entertaining and funny children with pleasure, interest and empathy are watching them, and then transform them into their games, in productive activity - children willingly and in detail tell stories with mole, painted, appliqued, modeling, queuing puzzles some scenes from cartoons or mole and his friends, dramatized parts of the movies and more. In the first year of the project it was a favorite hero and friend to their mobile and didactic games. It was a favorite guest and their holidays. That children can not tell the details of individual episodes, with the same facial expressions, gestures and interjections, the transfer of knowledge to other situations in their games and shows their great passion for these films, and the results of their productive activity prove this. Making and diverse integrative connections. Significantly increase the number of teachers who are more courageous use innovative techniques and technologies in intentional and unintentional situations. Some of the parents and family members took active part in the design and coloring of tiaras for theater in the movies for mole. Subsequently, after the teachers had earned enough experience in project started to integrate and tasks involved in the performance of mole and Queen chess. Queen of chess loved magical hero, but also a very powerful piece in chess. It presents the world with the rules of logic and defeating strategies. According to different ages and levels of knowledge to introduce children to basic rules of chess. According to the specifics of teaching chess, children's age and the peculiarities of their thinking, teachers select and apply appropriate methods, tools and techniques - playful, visual, verbal and practical, by which realize the objectives and the specific educational content of teaching chess. 2

Teachers using information and computer techniques and technologies, and other appropriate methods, tools and techniques, were able to engage the interest and desire in children to adopt, improve and broaden their knowledge of the game Chess - for moves that make different shapes for different species chess - according to the material from which it is made, the color of the shapes and the like. Children successfully arranged and puzzles with the help of teachers, which was a relatively difficult task, but through it sought to develop observation and visual memory in children. Some teachers used the chess field and in the yard in the setting. In larger groups of children in pairs and play the game in Icelandic methodology. Through this game also educate children from their play in the spirit of sportsmanship, as the beginning and end of the chess game begins and ends with a handshake between the two adversaries. Play chess develops logic and strategic thinking in children and educate their attention.Both characters and their positive views about fair play are vital to our modern world.

Excited by his adventures, extracting the main idea of each film makes the connection to the moral message of the film with Bulgarian folk proverbs. At the beginning of the project, we educators in kindergarten, started working on chess training of children with some fear, because we were not sure if the kids would be willing to play this game. Now, almost at the end of the first year of the project, we can share that many children are interested in it. In preparatory classes in kindergarten has about a dozen children who are well advanced in this game. Show lasting desire and pleasure play it during the planned learning situations or activity of interest.
