Goldilocks and the three/four bears

We've had a week of bear books, bear hunt, acting out bear stories.

Today, we've made some Goldilocks and the three bears puppets and told the story round the house.

We made the models from card
which the younger children decorated.
We fixed the characters to chop sticks with sticky tape and acted out the story.

This is Mother Bear with the porridge.

The story went all over the house

 and garden.

 Miss Belle was excited to tell the story
 and decided that there should really be four bears with Holly Bear being a bear away at university. We didn't get as far as making Holy Bear but then as she was absent it didn't matter.

This is linked to It's Playtime where there are many, many play ideas.


  1. four bears / forebears is a good old Flanders and Swann joke

  2. What a great idea. Blessings!

  3. how fun - to recreate the story in a nice personalized way. I always love how children add their own imaginative spin to tales. :)

    I would love to entend an invite to join my weekly child centered linky party - The Sunday Showcase. We share ideas like these & fnd great new ideas from others! Hope you'll stop by for a visit - we'd love to have you link up.


  4. Bernadette, thank you-will have a look. Sounds fun.
