Building Houses - Three Little Pig Style

Pin It

Yesterday I shared our Three Little Pigs puppets and I mentioned how I can't eem to read a book without wanting to turn it into a playtime activity... well here's how the Three Little Pigs Playdate goes...

We read the story - with some quick thinking from mommy when she notices the last page has the original (pig boils wolf and eats him for supper) ending...



The kiddos discover some strategically places building materials...


drinking straws, lego bricks and sticks...



so we set about to build a house made of straw... (and playdough and cotton reels and all sorts of other bits we could find)


and then the second little kid found a collection of sticks and set about building a sort of yurt teepee...

...and then they found some Lego bricks and built a model home (Vin always insists on making his house just like the one in the Lego ideas booklet that came with our bricks!)

Then we used our puppets to act out the story...
here is the Big Bad Wolf huffing and puffing at our straw house...

but in our story the Big Bad Wolf fell asleep and the little pigs snuck out of the house and went to the fairground and climbed an apple tree and all sorts of exciting toddler led embellishments!


How do you like to bring stories to life in your home?
