Just as the story has evolved into an several different versions of its own accord, children can enjoy a creative writing challenge by creating their own different versions. Writing the story from a different character’s perspective can be a useful additional exercise in creative writing for children in need of a further challenge.

The Three Little Pigs story makes an deal backdrop to children’s discovery about pigs in general.

With a supply of masks children can re-enact the story outside or even in the role-play area. Being allowed to perform this kind of activity on their own without the supervision of adults is particularly popular with young children. Letting children re-tell stories using props is a most worthwhile activity as it helps build self-confidence, develop story-telling skills and bolsters group social skills. To add to the excitement, the story may be filmed, recorded or in some other manner presented to the others in the class.

The Three Little Pigs presents numerous creative activities for young children. Children can paint pigs, use a computer program to create pictures of pigs, create mobiles that hang from the ceiling and many more artistic creations. The end result will be a vibrant and bright classroom where every single child will be able to have their own work on show.

Visiting a farm presents an ideal opportunity for children to learn about farm animals in general and pigs in particular.
