THE THREE LITTLE PIGS - AN INVITATION TO PLAY

THE THREE LITTLE PIGS - AN INVITATION TO PLAY

Both girls have been really enjoying this famous story book. They get so excited with the huffing and puffing part. It's such a joy to see them compete each other with who can huff and puff the best. 

Setting the scene. We discussed what was in the tray and how it might be used to recreate our favourite story.

It led me to thinking that we could re-create the story using a range of materials that could provide a challenge for them to re-create the houses. We started by reading the story then I gave them a tray with straws, playdough, lego blocks and craft sticks. I was lucky we already had three little toy pig animals and although we didn't have a wolf, I substituted it for a lion.
