Poppins Book Nook: The Three Little Pigs

First of all, let me apolize about not participating last month. We had all kinds of things planned! The day we had planned to do them, we got a call from our adoption agency that we were being placed with a newborn baby boy in 2 days!! Talk about a frantic weekend!! So without futher ado, introducing Ezra Caleb:
He is a month old now!!

The book we chose to read this month was The Three Little Pigs for our fairy tale theme!  

First thing we did was make some story props.  I used craft foam to make these since I have an over-abundance of it.

First I cut the foam in ovals.
Then we cut out the eyes and added ears, nose, and teeth.

Then I added craft sticks to the back.

Next up was building our houses out of straw, sticks and bricks.

The wind was not cooperating today, so we just made them short.

Then we put the pig in the 1st house and the wolf blew it down.

Then we put the pig in the second house, and the wolf blew it down.

The wolf was not so lucky with the 3rd house!!

Our mess afterwards!!
