Children's Theater: 3 Little Piggies

Children's Theater is a fun time around our house. These colorful masks were made by my friend Anny. She is a former kindergarten and art teacher. After my grandson acted out the popular nursery story "The Three Little Pigs," we decided to donate the wolf and several pink piggies to Ryan's kindergarten classroom. What playtime masks have you created?

Ryan loves to play the guitar. He's 5 years old and I never know what hat he's going to put on next! It's the same with his grandpa and the shoes! I think there are some blues in this photo for Blue Monday and Mandarin Orange Monday


The Three Little Pigs is a fable featuring anthropomorphic pigs who build three houses of different materials. A big bad wolf is able to blow down the first two pigs' houses, made of straw and wood respectively, but is unable to destroy the third pig's house, made of bricks. Printed versions date back to the 1840s.

Piggies Lyrics: The Beatles

Have you seen the little piggies
Crawling in the dirt
And for all the little piggies
Life is getting worse
Always having dirt to play around in.

Have you seen the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts to play around in.

In their sties with all their backing
They don't care what goes on around
In their eyes there's something lacking
What they need's a damn good whacking.

Everywhere there's lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon.

Three Little Pigs (Little Golden Book)
The Three Little Pigs
Three Little Pigs (Night Night, Sleep Tight)
