One of my personal favourite fairy/folk tale, and definitely my daughter’s (4 years) too, is The 3 Little Pigs! Today I will share an easy craft we did to show the three different houses the three pigs built.
We kept it quite simple, making the different houses with different material, and drawing the rest of the picture with crayons.

How to Make your 3 Little Pig Houses
The Straw House
This one was made with raffia ribbon strips. I drew the house for my daughter, and she had to cut the ribbon, and fill the house. Great activity for fine motor skill development too!
The Stick House
The stick house is from match sticks. This time I drew the house with glue and she added the match sticks. She had to use her problem solving skills when the match sticks did not fit the lines, and broke some in half.
The Brick House
The brick house was a puzzle of sorts. I cut the bricks and roof from gum paper, then made a template of the house with the cut pieces. She completed the “puzzle” by sticking the pieces onto the right(more or less).
We had so much fun and so much learning during this activity!
