The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs
How funny is this story! Anytime you can take a classic story and change the narrative - I HAVE to give it a try! I am also a fan of the pictures.
Here are some ideas for fun activities to do with your kiddos.
- Make three houses - one of (drinking) straw(s), one of (Popsicle) sticks - or any sticks you find out in the real world, and a third house of (Lego) bricks. Test them out - which blows down easier, if you even get to that stage. Maybe put on some music and just enjoy building with your kids! Time together is well spent.
- Bake a cake! If you have followed me for any amount of time or even if you're new around here - you'll know a lot of the stories focus on food. Why? Because food makes us show up and then the rest is our interactions. It's the "if you build it, they will come" but for me and my family...if I bake it, they will come! Baking is also a great way to incorporate fractions, following directions, and quality time!
- Just like a previous book - this book is amazing about perspective. Seeing one story from two different sides. For older kids, I'd sit down and talk about the events from the story of the middle, or older brother. What were their thoughts on the other brother's choice? Why did they choose what they did? Would you let your sibling come in if you were the oldest brother? So much to talk about and hear your children's thoughts!
Thank you for coming to listen to this story! It's just such a fun story so I'm so happy to share it with you! If you do any of these things or any other fun activities related to this book, please share on social media and tag me! I love to see how creative everyone is!
Cheers friends! Until the next story time!
