Traditional stories: The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Here is another example of a pack I made up to go alongside the traditional tale of the 'Three Billy Goats Gruff' using props from Sparklebox.

It's always good if you can add physical props that are sensory to add to the story.  However i love the fact that these are simple and easy to prepare props that can be used over and over again as well as wiped over if needed.  

You will see in the picture that I have also added two jam jar lids to the pack.  The children love using these to make the sound of the trip trap noise of the goats going over the bridge.

The other week when I was working with a small group of children we acted out the story after revising the story using the children as the goats and the troll.  We put some chairs together facing back to back and added some material over it for the bridge.

Blue material was added to the underneath section for the troll to sit on waiting for the goats. I printed off and laminated some goat masks for each of the children and a troll one.

The families helped tell the story and encouraged and supported the children to act out the parts.  A lovely afternoon was had by all and some great photos taken for the memories for the families.

The masks I used were these found at:
