The Three Little Pigs

Little Pig, Let Me Come In!
Not by the Hair of My Chinny Chin Chin!
Today we made a Three Little Pigs tissue box house!

Here are the supplies we started with:

A tissue box, pom-poms, paper, paper towel roll, tape, glue, scissors, markers and water colors.

First I wrapped the tissue box with white paper,
and Miss Sassy Painted it.
She can't wait to play with this.

Next I added red card stock for the roof.
And we made 3 Little Pigs out of the pom-poms and the paper towel roll.
And Miss Sassy drew a Big Bad Wolf.
I cut it out and glued it one a Popsicle stick.
Presto! The Three Little Pigs House

Miss S. had an awesome time acting out the story!
Fun fun fun!

I won first prize for the Tissue Box Challenge!
Thank you Activity Mom!!

  6. We love the three little pigs. We built houses for them out of old cereal boxes a while back. If you have an iPod there's a really cute free app that will read the Three Little Pigs story and do chimes for your child to turn the page. Just do a search for Story Chimes and it'll come up. My son really likes it.
