I love to be creative, especially when it comes to playing with the kids, or helping them learn.
Unfortunately, sometimes I get a bit carried away.
Take, for instance, this drawing I did yesterday to tell the story of the Three Little Pigs. I thought it would be fun to draw it, rather than just reading it from the book.
This is what resulted.
The truth is, I couldn't exactly remember the entire story of the Three Little Pigs...
So, to start with, each pig had a name...
Bernard, Jerry, and Arnie. Bernard was wearing a bow tie, though I've no idea why.
Bernard tried to build his house with straw.
Which, duh, was blown away by the Big Bad Wolf.
Here is the Wolf.
Then Bernard went squealing to Jerry, who decided he would build them a house with twigs.
These dumb pigs never learn do they.
Then Bernard and Jerry went squealing to Arnie, who cleverly decided to build his house with bricks.
And this, here, is the wheelbarrow that was used to deliver the bricks to build the house.
(What? That totally IS a wheelbarrow!)
I didn't make it to the end of the story because my kids walked off bearing looks of disgust, and later returned to vandalize my picture with pen scribbles.
And don't even ask me about the fish at the bottom...
