Create an Animal Tale
Share with the child the classic nursery rhymes of the three little kittens, the three little pigs, and the three billy goats gruff. Talk about the similarities and differences of these three families of three main characters each. Have the child create their own illustrated animal tale using the number three. Have them begin by choosing a type of animal. Then ask: What problem do your characters have? How will the problem be solved? What lesson will the characters learn?
