With a little engineering and creativity kids can help the Three Billy Goats Gruff escape by building a bridge strong enough to hold baby gruff, middle gruff, and of course big gruff. This is a fun hands on activity to enjoy after story time with your preschooler or kindergartner. I have a free printable for you so all you have to do is print and play with the kids.

Directions:

To set up the activity cut out the goats. Build 3 block stacks  (small, medium, and large) and tape each goat onto the stack that matches its size. You or your kiddo can do this.

Build bridges using the blocks and paper. We built two pillars using the blocks and then set the paper on top for the goats to walk across. We ended up cutting our paper in half (hot-dog style).

The kids were able to use a stack of paper to make the bridge strong enough for baby gruff to walk across but for middle gruff and big gruff the kids had to figure out a different way to build their bridge. We started folding the paper which gave it strength to withstand the pressure from the blocks so middle gruff and big gruff could be saved from the nasty mean troll–Yay!!!

The duplo blocks worked really well because the bumps held the folded paper in place.
