The Three Little Pigs; a kid's book club activity

This post contains affiliate links.

So, are any of you aware that March 1st is National Pig Day?  Crazy right?  While the most normal people would be celebrating this day by eating bacon or pork chops, I decided to celebrate by reading one of my favorite books and doing some pig themed crafts!


We started off reading The Three Little Pigs.  Warning on this version, the wolf eats the pigs and the last pig eats the wolf.  I hadn't read this book before reading it to the kids and well, I hadn't realized that this was the violent copy of The Three Little Pigs.  It's still good, it's just, uh, violent.  But I just changed the parts...so instead of the wolf eating the pigs, he sent them on a vacation and instead of the last pig eating the wolf, he invited him over for dinner since that is what the wolf wanted anyway, to have dinner with one of the pigs. The kids didn't know the difference.   


After we got done with the book, we started a few projects!  This little project was so simple and fun. I drew a picture of a house and then let the kids fill them in with house supplies.  We used cut up red paper for the bricks, toothpicks for the house of sticks and yellow yarn for the straw house.




While the houses were drying, we had some themed snacks too!  Potato strings, for the straw, pretzel sticks, for the sticks, and blocks of cheese, for the bricks.  


There was also banana slices with chocolate chips on them to make them look like snouts.


And we also had some pigs in a blanket.


Oh and you can't forget the graham crackers with cinnamon cream cheese dip.  This represented the bricks and mortar.


We had a lot of fun with this story time.  I really feel like this might be a new "thing" for us around here!
