What You’ll Do
These puppets and props take a little time to prepare, but they’ll be well worth it when you’re done. Your kids will love making them and then using them to act out the fairy tale.
To Make the Houses
First, cut out the house shapes from the PDF template.
Use red paper for the brick house. Use a black marker to draw outlines on the house. Fill in the roof with a dark red marker.
Use yellow paper for the straw house and brown paper for the stick house. Use a black marker to draw outlines on those houses. You can use the photo above as a guide.
To Make the Wolf
Use the PDF template once again to cut out the wolf. You can use brown or grey paper to match the wolf in your version of The Three Little Pigs.
Use a black marker to outline the wolf. Then use that marker to draw the wolf’s eyebrows, ears and nose. You can use a white or silver marker to add details to the eyes and to add some teeth.
To Make the Pigs
Now, use the PDF template again to cut out the pig shapes.
Use your black marker pen to draw outlines on the pig. Finish it off by drawing the pigs face and mouth using more markers.
You can make different facial expressions on each pig to distinguish between the three pigs.
