The Three Little Pigs

The Three Little Pigs can be played in many ways. I really like the Roald Dahl version though it is for older kids. Adele likes the Silly Symphony version from 1933, especially the Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? song. So, we created our story based on our likes. Here is the playscript. 

 

 

 

 

Pig 1:   I build my house of straw and play around all day.

Pig 2: I build my house of twigs and dance around all day.

Pig 3: I build my house of bricks and I don't have time to play around.


           
Pig 1 and 2: Who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf, Big Bad Wolf, Big Bad Wolf?
                    Who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

 


Pig1 and 2: Oh, no! The Wolf!

 

Wolf: Little pig, little pig, let me come in!

 

Pig 1: No, no, by the hairs on my chinny-chin-chin!

 


Wolf: Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!

 

The wolf blew his house away and the little piggy hardly had enough time to escape and run to his brother's house which was made of twigs. The wolf reached this house too, licked his lips and said:

 

Wolf: Little pig, little pig, let me come in!

 

Pig 2: No, no, by the hairs on my chinny-chin-chin!

 

Wolf: Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!

 

The wolf blew away the house easily, but the piggies could escape to their brother's brick house.

 

Wolf: Little pig, little pig, let me come in!

 

Pig 3: No, no, by the hairs on my chinny-chin-chin!

 


Wolf: Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in! Here we go! 

 

The wolf huffed and puffed but the house stayed up as good as new.

 

Pigs: Who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf, Big Bad Wolf, Big Bad Wolf?
         Who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

 

 

What do you think? How will the pigs get rid of the wolf?

 

 

 

 

 

We usually end the story by having the wolf climb down the chimney and the pigs pouring hot water on him. Sometimes, we invite characters like Merida or Ursula to save the pigs. Or the wolf gets carried away by a giant baby (my little daughter). If so, we "punish" the little giant by tickling her and counting out the This Little Piggy rhyme on her toes.

 

 

 

 

 

This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed home,
This little piggy had roast beef
This little piggy had none,
And this little piggy cried wee wee wee all the way home
