Once upon a time there was a mother pig who had three little pigs. The three little pigs grew so big, mother said to them, you must go and build houses for yourselves. But take care that the wolf (downward dog) does not catch you. The 3 pigs packed their suitcasesand set off on their adventure – hugs goodbye.
The three little pigs set off into the squelchy mud – sticky mud walk. It was such a lovely day, the sun was shining – Sun Salutation. They walked for a long time over mountains and bridges “We will take care that the wolf does not catch us,”
And so the first little pig built his house out of the straw – woodchopper – He was very pleased with his house and when it was finished he opened the window (standing forward bend)and sat at his newtableto enjoy his lunch in his new home, making a sandwich. “Now the wolf won’t catch me.”
The second little pig and the third little pig got on their bikes and cycledalong the road. They came to a lake and found a boat. They both rowed the boat across to the other side into a forest of trees. There were lots of sticks, twigs and crooked branches on the ground.
The second little pig decided to build himself a house of sticks woodchopper. When it was finished, he went inside and sat in his new chair. A little kitten came and lived with the second little pig too! He said, “Now the wolf won’t catch me and my pet cat!”
The third little pig hopped in his truck and drove away down the road. He stopped and made a telephone call. “Please will you give me some bricks?” asked the third little pig. “I’ll be needing a lot! I’m building a house!” Yes,” said the man. It took the third little pig a long time to build the house, for it was a very strong house.
The third little pig was very pleased with his house. He said, “Now the wolf won’t catch me.” He opened the very lovely door and went inside and made himself a cup of tea (Star – Triangle Pose singing “I’m a little teapot” on each side).
The next day the wolf – bear walking – came along the road. He came to the house of straw which the first little pig had built. When the first little pig saw the wolf coming, he ran inside his house and hid – mouse pose
The wolf knocked on the door using his leg and said, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.” “No, no,” said the little pig, still hiding in mouse pose. “By the hair of my chinny chin chin, I will not let you come in.” “Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house in,” said the wolf.
So he huffed and he puffed and he huffed and he puffed – hot air balloon . The house of straw fell down – ragdoll– and the wolf gobbled (seated forward bend) up the first little pig. Pat head and rub tummy!
When the second little pig saw the wolf coming, he ran inside his house and hid. – mouse pose. The wolf knocked on the door – patting body down – and said, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.” No, no,” said the little pig, still hiding in mouse pose. “By the hair of my chinny chin chin, I will not let you come in.
“Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house in,” said the wolf. – dragon fire breaths. The house of sticks fell down – ragdoll – and the wolf gobbled up the pig (butterfly forward bend) up the little pig. Pat head and rub tummy!
The next day the wolf jumped on the bus (group posture option with Wheels on the Bus song) and went down the road. He came to the house of bricks which the third little pig had built. The 3rd little pig was up doing his eye exercises (head still – thumb outstretched – use eyes alone to follow thumb tip as you move it side to side, up and down and all the way around) and spotted the wolf so he ran inside his house and hid in mouse pose.
The wolf knocked on the door and said, “Little pig, little pig, let me come in.” “No, no,” said the little pig, still hiding in mouse pose. “By the hair of my chinny chin chin, I will not let you come in.” “Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house in,” said the wolf –hah breathing (as if fogging up glasses)
So he huffed and he puffed and he huffed and he puffed. But the house of bricks did not fall down.
The wolf was very angry – owl pose – and thought, “This is a very brave little pig!” The little pig did his bravery dance first on one side! – Warrior I – “I am Brave – surfer, I am bold, I am strong – flying) then the other side!
The grumpy Wolf sat with his legs crossed and decided to climb (cross crawl)up onto the roof of the house – and jump down the pigs chimney. But he fell (happy baby) into a great big pot (bowl) on the clever pigs stove and the little pig put the lid on it to make a Wolf Stew! – butterfly forward bend. Pat head and rub tummy!
What a story! We need to feel calm and relaxed now after that very exciting story. We don’t need to worry about any big bad wolves. It was just a story. But it did help us learn about the sorts of things we can build from – straw wasn’t very strong, nor were the sticks. But the bricks were very strong. Now we can relax and get comfy and listen to some twinkly music as we lay still and feel safe and warm.
