We always start our activity day with a small FHE style lesson. Tonight we read the scripture in Helaman 5: 12. We discussed some of the things that help us build a strong foundation - Our testimonies of Jesus Christ, prayer, scriptures study, good friends etc... then we talked a little about the things that might try to knock us about. We then acted out the story of the little pigs, using the story to highlight how important it is to work and build a strong foundation so that the huffing and puffing (big bad wolf) of the world cannot not shake us. The kids had a fabulous time acting out thier roles. We found a great printable of the story, and gave each child a role (they were all given the picture of their character) - 3 little pigs, the 3 houses and the big bad wolf. I was the narrater and just made the story us as we went along. The "house" children did a great job of sheilding their little pigs, and then dramatising either their fall or their steadfastness.
The printable we used were similer to these
