Tell or read the fairytale story that you have chosen for the activity. Be sure to emphasize the setting of the story to the children.
Brainstorm with the children on which the parts of the story setting they would like to recreate. For a story such as the Three Little Pigs, you may wish to choose just one part of the setting.
Have the children construct the setting using blocks and any other materials available.
Retell the story using the scenery created by the children.
